Years before she became the celebrated speaker and Unity minister she is today, Edwene Gaines was raising her daughter in abject poverty. Overwhelmed and terrified, she turned toward her faith for reassurance, sustenance, and finally for direction.
What seemed impossible at the time, she did anyway. She gave away 10 percent of every cent that came to her, and when her income tripled in a matter of six months, she knew it was the work of God. She began to follow the three other spiritual laws of prosperity, and today she lives a life of once unimaginable luxury.
Gaines shares with you the secrets for acquiring wealth and living abundantly. She guarantees that following these principles will change your life from one of deprivation and want into one of abundance and freedom:
Edwene Gaines is a widely known seminar leader who works with thousands of people each year on personal issues of prosperity, integrity, commitment, forgiveness, and finding purpose for their lives. An ordained Unity minister since 1979, she is the owner-director of the Rock Ridge Retreat Center in Valley Head, Alabama.

Read to me!
I heard Edwene Gaines speak a few years ago, and was impressed with how funny she is. Her stories are hysterical and to the point, and very moving. Meanwhile, her advice - when practiced - is spot on. Tithing doesn't work unless you do it ... and the other four principles are just as important ... but when I started to apply this material, I found miracles starting to occur. I've listened to this more than once. Very good prosperity book.
Yes- I read the print version of this book several years ago and while I enjoyed it very much, hearing it read by the author added another dimension to the text and really brought the teachings to life for me.
Edwene's narration is really, really fantastic. Her voice is soothing and pleasant and I feel so comfortable listening to her teach the material.
When she talks about how she CHOOSES to have faith. It's not something that some people are just born with- it's a conscious choice that we all make each and every day.
I have listened to a LOT of audiobooks on spiritual prosperity teachings by authors such as Abraham Hicks, Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Mike Dooley, etc. etc. etc... This recording by Edwene is one that I will return to again and again- it is concise and the information has truly changed my life.
I love Edwene Gaines and hearing this book on Audible! I've read the book (it's great) then decided to listen to it---sooo fantastic! You can't not believe her and be engaged into practicing what she preaches. Her wonderful Southern drawl and her spirit of conviction make this so worth the listen. ("Eat the frog" is one of her many witty ways to make Spiritual Principles memorable.)
This is an EXCELLENT recording/reading. Edwene is very funny. Her beliefs are directly related to Bible teachings. Her 10-step program described on HOW TO SET GOALS is in itself worth the 6-hr credit purchase. I listened to Jim Rohn's GOAL SETTING. THAT was NOT HELPFUL. This Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity recording has so many areas that will help anyone wanting to change themselves. Like the ACTUAL STEPS she gives to 'Face Your Fear'. Actions to take to Forgive ourselves and others. How to learn to trust and have faith that YOU ARE WORTH having what your heart desires. She gives MANY, MANY Examples from her life of things that WE ALL FACE, but blame others for OR don't know how to deal with. These examples show us how we need to react/respond when 'bad' things happen or people do things that we THINK are wrong. Or when mates or co-workers don't act the way we expect them to. How to STOP Blaming others for ou 'unhappieness'.
This is an excellent audiobook. VERY helpful for those who ARE READY TO LOOK into themselves to change.
This is by far my favorite audio book. Edwene's book is incredibly inspirational. Her personal narration makes the book even more of an enjoyable listen--her voice is warm and just makes you want to smile.
Tithing is a scary prospect, especially if you feel a lack of abundance in your life. The author is a Unity minister and I learned about her from an podcast I listen to every week. Her personal story is very good, the lessons she teache are excellent and her voice has a southern drawl filled with sincerity.
Loved it! The most moving story for me was Mildreds cruise story... i tear up everytime.
The rhythm of Edwene's speaking style allows your brain to seep in all the great things she has to share. Have a pen handy for the fantastic affirmations she relays.
I will listen, study and do the activities repeatedly.
PS-I haven't known anyone to talk to God that way.
This book has a mix of well balanced information, practical tips and stories that engage and prove the concepts. I have been really resistant to the tithing concept and will now not think twice - except as she says I'll have to make a list of who to tithe to. :)
