“As a mother who has raised an asthmatic child, as well as someone who has lost a loved one to respiratory distress, I know firsthand the sheer terror of what most take for granted: God’s gift of breath. In Learning to Breathe, Susan Fries singlehandedly confronts the battle against poor indoor air quality. In her quest to save her own son, she acquires a life-long mission: a better way to live, a better way to breathe. Quite simply, Ms. Fries life story is inspirational.” – Kim Gosselin, author, The ABCs of Asthma
“Learning to Breathe is a heart-felt and thought-provoking journey of a family’s quest for answers to a son’s asthmatic condition. The author’s search and eventual discoveries provide us with a compass for navigating through the morass of medical jargon about this nearly-epidemic condition.” – Dr. Case Adams, author of Asthma Solved Naturally: The Surprising Underlying Causes and Hundreds of Natural Strategies to Beat Asthma

I CHOOSE LOVE . . .
No occasion justifies hatred;
no injustice warrants bitterness, I choose love.
Today I will love God and what God loves.
I CHOOSE JOY . . .
I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance,
I will refuse the temptation to be cynical . . .
the tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse to see
people as anything less than human beings, created by God.
I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than
an opportunity to see God.
I CHOOSE PEACE . . .
I will live forgiven, I will forgive so that I may live.
I CHOOSE PATIENCE . . .
I will overlook the inconveniences of the world. Instead of
cursing the one who takes my place, I’ll invite him to do so.
Rather than complain that the wait is too long,
I will thank God for a moment to pray. Instead of clinching my fist
at new assignments, I will face them with joy and courage.
I CHOOSE KINDNESS . . .
I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone.
Kind to the rich, for they are afraid. And kind to the unkind
for such is how God has treated me.
I CHOOSE GOODNESS . . .
I will go without a dollar before
I take a dishonest one. I will be overlooked before I will boast,
I will confess before I will accuse. I choose goodness.
I CHOOSE FAITHFULNESS . . .
Today I will keep my promises,
My debtors will not regret their trust. My associates will not
question my word. My wife will not question my love.
And my children will never fear that
their father will not come home.
I CHOOSE GENTLENESS . . .
Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle.
If I raise my voice may it be only in praise.
If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer.
If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.
I CHOOSE SELF-CONTROL . . .
I am a spiritual being . . .
After this body is dead, my spirit will soar.
I refuse to let what will rot, rule the eternal.
I choose self-control. I will be drunk only by joy.
I will be impassioned only by my faith.
I will be influenced only by God.
I will be taught only by Christ.
I choose self-control.
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
Goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
To these I commit my day.
If I succeed, I will give thanks.
If I fail, I will seek His grace.
And then, when this day is done,
I will place my head on my pillow and rest.
