The perfect way to let someone know you see all that they are doing and that you’re grateful, You Are Essential is a beautiful celebration of the human spirit and a reminder that no matter what, we will always need each other.
You Are Essential is a book for everyone as we are ALL essential! When COVID hit last year many different types of occupations came to the forefront, and some that are usually not considered important/ essential suddenly became VERY important to all of us. I am in one of those professions (I work in a local government office) that is essential but not very appreciated by the public, still even now. It’s rare to get a thank you and more common to get yelled at. I had a rough day at work when I had ordered You Are Essential, so it came at a good time for me.
You Are Essential is uplifting and gives encouraging quotes, stories and scriptures. It shows how everyone is important with what they do: Sometimes we just need reminding!
The book itself it pocket sized and is colorful and even has its own personal ribbon bookmark attached to the book. It would make the perfect gift for those who need these reminders and a great little coffee table book.
I plan to hold on to this one and read it as I need it.
I received a copy from the publisher via Amazon Prime.
