"The Theory of 5 is a book I probably wouldn’t have chosen had it not been on a reading list that I had come to enjoy. Could I really get on board with the concept that we become the average of the five people we spend the most time with? I wasn’t sure.
Then, I began to read. As a Christian, I was immediately curious to read about the five main categories which help to shape our lives; spiritually, relationships and marriage, parenting, finance, and health. What struck home was how the author after having experienced much personal loss and heartache, was forced to examine what he believed about life. After some self-reflection, Chris began to see the world differently and wanted very much for his children and grandchildren to one day read about how he viewed life. Thus he wrote the Theory of 5. I also very much agreed with Chris’ belief that the most joyous moments of life come after the moment we reframe our thinking. My favorite takeaway from this book is the personal reminder that we are never alone in this life."
