1. “Winning for Life” by Denis Waitley

The American motivational speaker said that his book “Winning for Life” is here to tell readers that the journey ahead may be difficult but “a beautiful life is not impossible.” He wrote, “When you stop caring about the doubts, when you stop caring about what could possibly go wrong, you give yourself a chance to experience a world where everything can go right.”

2. “Here I Am” by Terry Samala de Guzman

A business leader, a teacher, and a life coach, Terry talks about her uplifting journey in this book, revealing insights that helped her survive her challenging career, marriage, motherhood, and health crises, towards a life filled with purpose and love. “Here I Am” will nudge readers to embrace unexpected opportunities, find power in being different, and discover strength in faith as 2020 unfolds its many surprises for us.

3. “Mid-September Letters” by Soyen

“Mid-September Letters” is a collection of poetry, quotes, and anecdotes about love, depression, and discovering the real meaning of happiness. It is written by Soyen Enconado who is known for her inspiring poems and quotes on socials @soyenwrites. “Book that plane ticket, start that business, make that call, love again etc. go for it,” she wrote on Twitter last August.

4. “Give Thanks and Praise” by Father Tito Caluag

The newly launched book has 200 prayers, including traditional Catholic prayers, prayers written by the ABS-CBN chaplain for personal intention, healing, special occasions and blessing accounts, and other non-Catholic prayers. It is the perfect accompaniment as we counter new challenges, keep our minds and hearts invigorated, and remain grateful for the blessings that come our way. Fr. Tito said, “I am hoping that this will spur a common ground in the family to pray. There’s a little bit of everything and anything for everyone.”

5. For children: “My First Prayer Book” by Scarlet Snow Belo

Hailed as Best Children’s Short Story in the Catholic Mass Media Awards 2019, Scarlet’s “My First Prayer Book” is a read-along guide—filled with stories and prayers—to help parents set off the prayer lives of their kids.
