Self Talk, Soul Talk
Robin McGraw, author and speaker
"The night that I spoke at the Women of Faith conference in Anaheim, California, all the speakers gathered in a small room for prayer. It’s a tradition at the annual event, and an incredibly awe-inspiring experience to be surrounded by motivational people just moments before heading on stage to share with tens of thousands of women what we hope will be powerful words. “May God be with Jennifer” was one of the prayers that were spoken. I didn’t know who Jennifer was and why we were saying a special prayer for her. It turns out I was sitting next to her at that moment, I would soon be inspired and moved to tears by her, and she would become my dear friend. Most importantly, I would soon understand that God is most certainly with Jennifer – and with all those who seek Him. You will, too, after reading this exceptional book.
"My message at that conference, as well as in my book Inside My Heart and regularly on my husband’s TV show, Dr. Phil, is that we all have the choice to live the life we want, to live with passion and purpose every single day. It’s not always an easy choice, but it is ours to make. Of course, we are born into legacies we wish were different, we grow up with baggage that can weigh us down, and with every challenge we face as adults, it’s all too easy to become paralyzed with self-pity, doubt, insecurity or any number of self-defeating emotions. That’s why the key to living a joyful life is all in the choosing – a choice Jennifer Rothschild has made with the utmost dignity, optimism and grace.
"It’s easy to forget that Jennifer has not been able to see since she was 15 years old because she never lets her disability define her. In fact, she only references that she is blind a handful of times in this book. She has chosen -- my favorite word because we all do have a choice -- to make blindness her friend and to focus on all that she has gained and continued to nourish as a result of losing her sight, including a keen self-awareness and unbending faith in God. These are only two of the gifts that Jennifer now uses to empower every one of us to live with vitality, freedom, wisdom and peace.
"In this book, Jennifer strikes the perfect balance between using her own experiences and Scripture to awaken us to the possibilities of our own lives. Hope and happiness are choices that Jennifer has made, and now she offers the tools and insights for each of us to also make room for more goodness in our lives. Jennifer is a blessing in my life and in the lives of all those whom she touches. You’re about to discover why … enjoy."

"For those of us that have perfected the art of self-talk to the level of our own internal talk show, Jennifer's book offers sweet peace and QUIET to our souls. Full of wisdom and depth, Jennifer is never afraid to get personal and honest; she writes like the wise and trusted friend she is."
Therapist, author and Women of Faith speaker
“I am crazy about Jennifer Rothschild. She communicates to me warmth, humor and provocative thought all within a few moments of being with her. We have giggled together, prayed together, and had soulish conversations together. I leave her presence always wanting more.
“I had the opportunity of having more with Jennifer as I read her new book, Self Talk, Soul Talk. It too is filled with warmth, humor and thought provoking nourishment for my soul. She leads me as well as her other readers into an understanding of how crucial it is that we kindly talk truth to ourselves. We come away uplifted and satisfied. I predict there will be countless thousands of her readers happily talking to themselves as they push their grocery carts, drive to work or make their dinner. Soul Talk will become the best epidemic to hit town. I recommend you catch it.”

Authors of His Brain, Her Brain
“A woman’s brain is divinely designed to be completely different from a man’s. His brain is designed in such a way that he can single-mindedly work on a project or have a conversation or worship without being bothered by a score of diverse thoughts and emotions. And, he can literally turn his brain off and think about nothing. Not so the wonderfully complex female brain which is constantly multitasking and processing words, emotions, and memories. As a result, a woman may be at much higher risk for the soul shattering shock of negative and destructive words.
“In this invigorating book, Jennifer Rothschild provides a prescription for women that will allow God himself to speak into your soul and begin His healing.”

“All of us talk to ourselves. We tell ourselves what we believe, or what others have told us about ourselves. Too often, we believe and feel things about ourselves that are untrue. We can change our false beliefs and feelings by replacing them with truth.
“Jennifer has learned how to do this and her passion has led her to share it with others. This book is Jennifer’s story, and it offers freedom and confidence for those struggling with habitual negative, degrading and painful self talk. Since Rothschild’s story can be your story, I suggest reading her book."
