Written in 1925, this book preceded Norman Vincent Peale's The Power of Positive Thinking, by 27 years. It is based on the simple premise that your words (and thoughts) are what determine your experiences. It is full of personal examples and useful affirmations. Biblical references are extensive, remember this was 1925, when being a church goer was pretty much a common denominator for Americans, not the cultural divisor it is today. This message, 88 years later, is still relative and riveting. It's all you need to change your life. ( )

The Game of Life & How To Play It
Winning Rules For Success & Happiness
by Florence Scovel-Shinn

This sweet, inspired and direct little book really addresses the spiritual principles Karma, Love, Prosperity and others. Though this remarkable woman has passed on to new worlds and new assignments I feel that her Divine Words will live on and on to help many. Scattered with personal stories and biblical examples and quotes the author really gave me a broader and deeper understanding of the enlightened laws I have come to know and love.

This wonderful little must-read is so jam packed with divine power and knowledge that I found myself going back over the words again and again meditating on each concept as it came up and feeling more enlightened by the minute. I would recommend this precious gift from God to anyone who has a deep thirst for spiritual understanding, an open mind when it comes to Christian based literature and a love for immortal words that have withstood the test of time. (copyright 1925)

Love & Light,

First published in 1925, this book has inspired thousands of people around the world to find a sense of purpose and belonging.

This little book will help you discover how your mind and its imaging faculties play leading roles in the game of life.

With her classic book, THE GAME OF LIFE AND HOW TO PLAY IT, Florence Scovel Shinn established herself as one of the most down-to-earth, practical, and helpful prosperity writers of her era. With a timeless message and the ability to explain success principles and how they work in an entertaining style, her writings are still considered the leaders in prosperity literature today.
