About An Imperceptible Spark

An Imperceptible Spark:

Finding the Courage to Live a Life of Joy

by Steven Rice

“What makes the difference between this moment and a million that have come before it and million that will come after it?”

That is the question that author Steven E. Rice asks himself in his debut title, An Imperceptible Spark: Finding the Courage to Live a Life of Joy. In the book, Steve tells the story of his quest for a life of greater joy. He shares what propelled him on the journey, the obstacles he faced along the way and the surprising discovery he made in the process.

Feeling trapped by a ‘good’ life, Steve wondered if there was any way to live a life of joy. That question launched him on a quest over the course of several years and culminated in his documenting the journey in An Imperceptible Spark.

That “nearly imperceptible spark” –a simple decision—is what makes all the difference between the creation of a dream and the courage it takes to see it through.

“The magic’s just started; the journey, just begun,” Steve says. “A quest is my story, your story, our story. It is the human story and you are on a journey whether you realize it or not.”

Join him for the exciting journey that will give you insight into your own.  Pick up your copy of An Imperceptible Spark today!

The Reviews

“Unlike a lot of Motivational or Self-Help books, Steve doesn’t tell us to change what we are doing- rather, we should be changing how we are thinking. I love this. I confess I’m not giving this book a 5-star review. But the reason for that is not because it is not a good book. I think it is; but theologically/philosophically, I just could not agree with some of the points. That’s an issue with my worldview, not an issue with the writing or the book.” – A Bug’s Life, Laurel C.

“An Imperceptible Spark is raw, honest and very reflective. Through out the book the message is clear. Joy is a choice we make every day in every moment of our lives.” – The Niche Clarity Coach, Sherrie Koretke

“This book gives me hope because it shows how one person can cast off the expectations of others and live a life that is rewarding and joyful.” – Janette

“Steven Rice’s message is very simple: we already have the imperceptible spark, you need not wait for anyone to give to you and you need not wait for tomorrow for things to get better. The act of bringing this spark to life rest solely on you.” –Steve G.

“Wonderful, wonderful. wonderful – your book is absolutely fabulous! Everyone needs a copy of this.” – Dave T.

“As I read your book, I know that God is using you to speak right to my heart. Nothing worthwhile comes without risk. And if your faith isn’t risky then it isn’t true faith. True faith requires us to close our eyes, take a deep breath, and jump! Thanks for the encouragement!”  – Martha J.
