I've Been Thinking . . .

Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life




A book of reflections and inspirations for those seeking wisdom, guidance, and encouragement on the road to a meaningful life

As a prominent woman juggling many roles, Maria Shriver knows just how surprising, unpredictable, and stressful everyday life can be. In this moving and powerful book, Shriver offers up the lessons she's learned along the way, and shares the meditations she's kept by her side as a touchstone for the challenges that arise in all our lives. The quotes, prayers, and reflections within are meant to get readers thinking, get them feeling, get them laughing, and get them through in one piece to what she calls the open field of life--a place of acceptance, a place of joy, a place of purpose and passion.

I've Been Thinking . . . is an intimate devotional, ideal for anyone at any point in her life. Whether you feel like you've got it all together or whether you feel like it's all falling apart; whether you're taking stock of your life or simply looking to recharge; whether you're a high-powered executive, a full-time caregiver, single, married, or divorced; whether you're a corporate lifer or ready to leap into starting your own business, or something in between, this slender, accessible, motivating book is for anyone who needs a reminder that we are all in this together. It's the kind of book you will turn to again and again for guidance and encouragement--one that provides the "Me, too!" feeling we get when talking to a close friend. It's the perfect gift for anyone who wants to renew her purpose and move forward in life with hope and grace.
