My Thoughts On The Book: The 3 Promises is an wonderful guide to help us find Joy in all areas of our lives.  I could not wait to read it and once I did decided that 2015 would be my year of Joy.  The book is easy to read and understand and provided a three day activity planner to get started.  I added it to my daily journal for the year.  Pollay's writing style is like conversing with a friend over a cup of coffee.  It is not high-brow reading, just a simple and down to earth style.  It was a great book for seeing fulfillment in life and knowing how to do what you love to do....with Joy.  This book is a must for a home library so you can go back and review it time and time again. My New Year's Resolution this year is going to be put this book to practice and follow The Three Promises Pledge:  I will find joy everyday, I will do what I love, I will make a difference, I will live a fulfilling life today and every day.
