What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we flipped through it several time a day?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to kids as gifts?
What if we used it when we traveled?
What if we used it in case of emergency?
Something to make you go....hmmm...

Deborah Norville’s latest book provides timely information on how to give, at times earn, and also receive respect. This book is written from a journalistic point of view with extensive research being done, many statistics provided and interviews with different individuals included. She touches on six different areas where we can use the power of respect to benefit our lives:
· At Home
· In Relationships
· At School
· In Business
· For Leaders
· And Self-Respect
Respect is shown from coming alongside others and learning to acknowledge the value of each person you come in contact with. It seems that this would be an obvious mindset that I know people used to have, but shockingly today, it seems to no longer be taught or modeled in our present day society. After reading this book, I was immediately able to hone in on different instances where respect was, and unfortunately was not, being shown.
For me, this book was not a fast read, but an important reminder of an easy, courteous and free technique that I need to apply to my daily life, and to always remember to treat others as I wish to be treated.
Thomas Nelson sent me the above book for review purposes. It will allow me to keep the book. I have no other connection to and have received no other compensation from Thomas Nelson.

I was amazed by all of the kind comments I received regarding my answers to the award questions. Many commented that they were glad to get to know me better.
Also, soon I will be making the trek to WordPress and having the dianeestrella.com account fully activated. You can stop now to take a peek. New blog design, new dirt on me and a new attitude from my days away. Yeah!!!!!

I've seen others come along looking oh, so cute and innocent. Talented, young, lovely.....
But then, it happens. The complete and utter meltdown. The no-brakes applied roller coaster ride into the Temple of Doom.
We've all seen Brittany, Jessica, Lindsey, Paris etc. take their turns. All starting out the same as you are, but then it happens.......
I have to say, lately you are impressing me. That whole Kayne West thing...... CLASSY! That showed poise well above your years. Your latest song "Fifteen", I have to say I love it. Giving those young followers of yours the heads up that you don't have a clue at fifteen, so on point.
So please, be the one! Not just for me, but for the entire world. Don't have a complete and total meltdown, drug or alcohol addiction, sex scandal or anything else involving the police. If you do fall into temptation, do it privately. I will pray for you and wait on the other side to see you come out smiling and happy.
Just show me and the other 4 billion people watching you that it can be done. Make your mark in a different way! Please be "the one".
There's still time to enter my giveaway. Scroll down and join in! :O)
