Finding the Gift: Daily Meditations for Mindfulness encourages readers to press pause for a few moments every day to gain life-changing insights from metaphors found in the most unlikely places. “I see things!” jokes Howell. Whether it’s from watching a favorite pet, a calm moment with nature, or a trip through the car wash, Howell reminds us there are lessons to challenge and improve our well-being everywhere, when we’re mindfully watching for them. In Finding the Gift, Angela Howell has captured 366 unique meditations to help readers see life from a greater perspective, so they can really “get the lesson” and apply new insights to their own lives. As we embrace mindful living and improve how we show up in the world, the world becomes a better place for everyone.

Howell says, “I was lost and sleep-walking for much of my life. When I was awake, I felt trapped and suffocated by all the masks I wore to present a perfect version of myself to everyone else. I suffered challenges along the way, but rather than give up, I learned to Find the Gift.” Instead of asking, “Why me?” Howell allowed her obstacles to become her teachers. Now she plans to shine the light for others who might know all too well what hopelessness feels like. She is also excited to share her insights with those who seek daily encouragement to remain inspired and grateful.

Howell has created an online community called FTG Friends for like-minded people who want more out of life, with support and encouragement along the way. New members can download her free eBook, Ten Secrets to Finding the Gift, as a thank you for joining her community at
