    product description

    I can’t control what life does to me—but I can control how I react to what life does!

    If you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86,400—with no balance carried from day to day—what would you do? How would you spend your money?

    Well, you do have such a bank…time.

    Every morning, time credits you with 86,400 seconds to use for whatever purpose you choose. Every night it rules off as “lost” whatever you have failed to use toward good purposes. It carries over no balances and allows no overdrafts. You can’t hoard it, save it, store it, loan it, or invest it. You can only use it.

    First Thing Every Morning has everything you need to energize your life and make the best use of those 86,400 seconds each day through—reflections, stories and quotes that will lift your spirits and lighten your load. There are 217 reflections in this book. Read one each day to start your day right, or skip ahead for more daily inspiration. Each chapter tells a brief inspirational story and is enhanced with several quotes for the day. Some chapters even include space for you to write down your own thoughts.

    Lewis Timberlake’s insights on more than fifty topics will help you to turn your life around…one day at a time.

      I have purchased this book several times for gifts
      Inspirational, for those in search of a personal vision. Comforting for those grieving, and stepping stones for those in search of a life path. I have given this book to a lady who was stressing over a family member with severe illness. She has bought several and sent to others. I gave a book to a new friend who lost his wife. He has since bought 8 or nine and sent the books comforting message to many others. A book that should be in every home; sitting on the coffee table....not a shelf . I have just bought 5 more.

        Quick, easy, motivational read!
        I am a business owner. It's 24x7. I like to read books that help make me a better leader and those that inspire me. This falls into both categories. Love the way it's broken down into important behaviors and enjoy the quotes throughout.
          Bottom Line:
          Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
