Book Reviews

*The Values String Review by Ali Marsman:


"I truly believe this is a book we all should have on our bookshelf, or Kindle, Kobo, etc ... wherever you have your books for quick reference. It is beautifully written and full of nothing but inspiration and words of wisdom!

... and I truly believe that each of you reading my thoughts on this book will get something wonderful from it. It is not a, 'preachy' 'you must' 'you should' kind of motivational book, but simply a beautifully worded book that can benefit the whole of the world."

** The Values String Review by Kelebogile Mbangi 

"The Values String is a motivational nonfiction book by Ukpeme Akpan Okon. 

Within the pages of this short, creative book, the author urges readers to shake off feelings of self-condemnation, guilt, and regret. She presents readers with a simple, implementable technique to turn their lives around. With this technique, you use your core values as affirmations, which in turn motivate you to action...

I loved the author's tone. Her voice came across as strong, motivational, and warm. Reading The Values String feels like getting that well-needed pep-talk to help you get back on track. The feeling of the book was further enhanced by the songs that the author wrote and included in some of the chapters. Some of these songs help you to feel calm and at peace, while others help you to muster up the courage you need.

Overall, I believe The Values String reaches what it sets out to do. The techniques explained have helped me. I also loved that I was able to complete it in one short sitting."


***Positive, Hopeful, Motivated, and Peaceful!

Ukpeme's words are inspiring, moving, and shift you to wanting to live better, and fill you with an undeniable knowing that you can live better. I met Ukpeme through our joined passion of peace and happiness, she is genuine and her Peace Agenda Summit in September 2019 was a phenomenal online event. A must read! Enjoy! ~ Jacqueline Pirtle, Author of the best seller 365 Days of Happiness, and her new book––Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops
