**Be sure to read the chapter titles. They often include insightful nuggets to the chapter contents.
**If you come across a section that's difficult for you in some regard, please don't give up! The story will resolve in a satisfying manner if you don't quit on it!
**As you read, ask yourself if the characters or situations within the stories might be metaphors for real life. There are probably more than one for each book, and their implications can be profound, but you need to find them.
**Be brave and ask yourself if you see a pattern of your own life reflected in the lives of the characters. Looking inward, and taking ownership, can be difficult, but life-altering and so very worth it!
You are in my prayers daily and I wish God's blessing upon you!! Sincerely, Madison.
