Melody Beattie has been a trusted counselor for millions of people for more than 25 years. Her books are infinitely relatable, flush with candor and insights, and rooted in firsthand experience. Make Miracles in Forty Days is punctuated with Beattie's own stirring stories of overcoming obstacles and dealing with life's tragedies. She walks listeners through a number of different situations, urging them to recognize within themselves the power they have to enact miracles---they have the ability to drastically change their current situations for the better. Beattie provides a six-week action plan, challenging us to practice her Miracle Exercise for 40 days. She instructs listeners to complete a daily gratitude list, which includes what they don't like about their lives, and provides a series of activities that will help them recognize what miracles they want to create. It's crucial, she shows, to be grateful for what we have and what we are, not what we want or wish we were.

I thought this was a '40Days of Emotional Digging and Struggling and Pain.......to a NEW YOU' . Haha, not at all. It's funny, engagingly read by the author and the exercises are actually a fun thing to do everyday.
I milk cows
I have listened to this audiobook twice now and I am now completing the exercise. Melody Beattie is so easy to listen to. Her stroires explain how she has trialed the activity of making miracles in 40 days and I found them enthralling. For me this audiobook was the right thing at the right time. Doing the activity or writing about things that totally get to you but still being grateful for them was a new experience. It has also increased my self awareness and identified what drives my behaviour. Funny enough I believe I am starting to see a smal miracle or two. Great book.
I cannot imagine anyone agreeing to this performance. I have tried to listen to this short book a few times now and cannot get through it. I can't find out the steps to this 40 days miracles, All the stories are so depressing and bad.
I think that Ms. Beattie must have considerable clout otherwise I cannot imagine anyone agreeing to this performance. I have tried to listen to this relatively short book twice now and cannot get through it. I can't find out her secret to miracles because it would take a miracle for me to listen to that much droning! Loved her other books and their narrations were just fine.
Leave it to Melody Beattie to once again craft words to inspire us to live our best lives and see that miracles are there, possible and within our reach. She is so inspiring. Her ability to show us another perspective and incorporate gratitude into lives pitfalls amazes me.
