Remember, Recapture, Reclaim, Restore, and Preserve: Principles for Living
By: Stephanie Brendlyn Coursey Bailey
Remember, Recapture, Reclaim, Restore, and Preserve: Principles for Living is about community values that come from a small community, USA, but are easily translatable to anywhere, USA. Community values are rooted in the foundation of families and generate our truths and beliefs for living. The book challenges the reader to remember, to recapture, to reclaim, to restore, and then to endeavor to preserve those values allowing us to live and be better.
Within the throes of the worst, there is another story that can remind us of the better. The relevance comes in the story's tie to current events followed by the challenging questions that are meant to cause a response in the reader and cause the reader to better their living and better their community living. By reflecting on our common values and seeing the chaos today, we are compelled to do better. Each day and each moment, we are capable of choosing differently regarding our living. We need to reflect regularly because in the "brevity of a moment", our lives can change and when the moments add up, we may have lost our way.
