In How to Make Life Work, author Michelle McKinney has written a book which provides principles and
practical advice on how to attain what the subtitle, "The Guide to Getting [Life] Together and Keeping It
In her brief introduction, Hammond sets the foundation for attaining the goal of how to make life work - God
is in control, but He expects each of us to do our own part in reaching our destinies.
Hammond then sets the cornerstones for getting and keeping life together - you, God, purpose and others.† At
this point Hammond says, "Itís all about you!"† You are the most important part in building your own life.
The rest of the book provides other components that make for a successful life and contains the following:†
pillars, tools, assembly, maintenance, preventive, long-term, accessories, and troubleshooting.† Each of these
categories is broken down into doable activities.† For example, the section on accessories includes righteousness,
peace, joy, favor and blessing, invaluable intangibles and honor.
Much of the material in this book has been written about by others, but the systematic approach and breadth of
the dealing with lifeís fundamental activities make this a valuable book to read and refer to from time to time
when life seems to be getting out of control.
