“The more that you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

― Dr. Seuss

During 2011, I read some fantastic books.  Also, I had the opportunity to publish my first book, Smart Work U.  I am so excited to see how God continues to use it to help high school students, college students, and parents. With that being said, we all receive inspiration in different ways.  When I read, I feel inspired.  If you are looking to find a few books for 2012, I encourage you to use this list as a starter. Book reviews available for blue highlighted listings.  Here are the books I read in 2011:
