The Secret really works!!
By Monique Harvey
from Detroit, MI
I'd first heard about The Secret back in October of last year when Lisa Nichols had a seminar at Detroit's Wayne County Community College. At the time she was selling the DVD but I didn't have the funds for it. Just recently, this year, I came across the book at my college bookstore and once again I didn't have the funds to purchase it, so what I would do is sit there in the store and read it. Just reading the book in the bookstore lifted up my spirits, then the book was discussed on the Oprah show, and I made sure I watched it. What stood out for me the most watching the show, was the topic on gratitude. Each morning, I read my bible and pray, but I've started making a list of what I am grateful for. Each time I read the book at the bookstore, I'd walk away feeling blessed. The one time I wanted to read the book, the last copy had been sold, but I didn't stress out, I asked for a copy to sent out for me. I went home that day, and about an hour later, my boyfriend came home with the mail and told me that I had a check. Mind you, I'd been waiting to be awarded a loan from school to help me with things at home and with my kids. I hadn't been awarded anything at this time, so I didn't know where the check was coming from, that is until I saw it, it was a refund check from Financial aid from the community college that I'd signed up for and it was for $558.oo. This was a blessing especially since I needed to get some things done for myself and my kids. I ran out to the bookstore that I knew had the book and bought it, and now, I can't stop reading it, it doesn't leave my sight. I'm in the middle of a court case for my three children and I'm using The Secret to help me gain custody of them.
