What would you be doing today - if you only had 37 days to live?

"Damn, girl. You write good.” -Lee Hancock, Dallas Morning New

"I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: I adore Patti Digh’s book Life is a Verb: 37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful, and Live Intentionally. I love her writing, her depth, her sizzle. This is a book that makes me sing with life and the possibilities we all have for transformation and awareness. It is the best antidote I’ve got these days for the pain and fear raging around us--that and loving hugs, long naps, fervent prayer and letting myself feel whatever I’m feeling." -Jennifer Louden, author of The Woman's Comfort Book

"Reading Life is a Verb is like mainlining goodness. Digh shows us what is real and what matters, and she gives us insiders tips on how to make minuscule life corrections that result in quantum shifts in experience. Her writing is laugh out loud funny and more profound than Zen koans. Let her wise counsel guide you to live your life gratefully and as a work of art  This will surely be the last self-help book you will ever need or want to read."
-Patricia Ryan Madson, Stanford Emerita and author of Improv Wisdom: Don’t Prepare, Just Show Up

"Life is a Verb is brilliantly-crafted, raw, gorgeously-designed, and daringly different from ‘self-help’ books. It relates, through stories that sparkle and astonish and soar, how to move, to be on your way, to realize who you really are through your actions. Every word of this book is essential."
-Dave Pollard, author of How to Save the World and Finding the Sweet Spot: The Natural Entrepreneur's Guide to Responsible, Sustainable, Joyful Work

“Gay, bisexual, or straight, living deliberately and authentically requires not just courage and perseverance, but also a practical guide. Patti provides us great insights and useful exercises that make it more likely we’ll all experience spiritual health.”
-Brian McNaught, author of Are You Guys Brothers?

“I have never seen such a simultaneously practical, aesthetically beautiful, and soul-caressing book in my life.”
-Kichiro Hayashi, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Aoyama Gakuin University, Tokyo, Japan

Life is a Verb is a wonderful treat! Good exercises, stories, and examples. Reading it will help you appreciate just how much can be gained through living with intention. It’s also a lot of fun.”
-Roger von Oech, author of A Whack on the Side of the Head: How You Can Be More Creative
