YOU CHOOSE is an (anti)-choose-your-own-adventure. You choose: You hear a scream (or not), and what do you do about it. Nothing or stay in your chair and figure out the who what when why or go out the front door and chase the scream to prevent it or create it or capture it. Within the book are choices and non-choices, choices masquerading as choices, labyrinths, your torture and your self-torture, your authorship, multiple worlds, you becoming someone else, another you, you becoming a series of animals, you becoming us, you becoming death, your repeated death, pizza, your mother, inner ear workings, and other tailings or tails or tales. YOU CHOOSE is literary, speculative, uncertain, an attempt at the universal and many worlds, surreal, magically realistic, immersive, and labyrinthine.

“You make me every single day. Some days you are unaware that I even exist, but I still get made. There are times when I am short and simple; at other times, I am a bit more drawn out and difficult. Sometimes there is pressure to make me in the midst of chaos; at other times, you get to make me in times of happiness and joy. I have the power to either land you in jail or give you ultimate victory. By doing nothing at all, you have still made me. Really, I am made at the end of a road that forks and runs off into two directions. Who am I? I am choice! Welcome to this book about choices.

We all have choices in life in both the big and the little, and ultimately Who You CHOOSE to be matters, according to the author, Carrie Spratley. Carrie came to a place where she realized how much more impactful it was when she chose to steward everything that happened as a gift. Carrie wrote this book to inspire others, so that they, too, could see things in a way that would generate more hope, more confidence, and more impact for this side of eternity. 17 years ago, Carrie was diagnosed with an illness that took away her ability to be a great wife, mom and friend. She knew that she had a choice, deciding how to navigate this illness. Everything in her said fight and fight hard. She had people who were counting on her, and she knew she was worth being set free. Carrie put on her manufactured smile and implemented everything she could to become well. After 10 years, Carrie finally began having more wins than losses and God graciously blessed her with the gift of healing. She chose wellness. She chose to fight. She chose to be a victor and not a victim. Being grateful for what God had done, Carrie decided to pay it forward and help other people with similar struggles; a holistic health coach was born. Carrie has collected proven tools and strategies to guide people into their purpose-filled, most authentic life possible. After 25 years of marriage to her husband, Eric, being on the other side of illness, and having raised three amazing young men, Jared, Garrett, and Caleb, Carrie realized that she has had some really contrasting life experiences. By the world's standards, she has been living what some would call the "highlight reel." However, most of those experiences paled in comparison to what space filled Carrie's heart when she decided to move in the direction of serving others. She did some serious heart-searching on what it was she was specifically being called to do. Carrie became a health coach, because being sick robbed her from 10 years of being the best version of herself possible. She was given the gift of healing, and she wanted to make sure that people knew there was a better way. Carrie wanted to learn everything she could so she could help others with their health issues. Carrie understands that what helped her nutritionally may not be best for each individual she desires to help. Therefore, she learned a broad spectrum of different nutrition theories, and she values helping people find what works best for them on a bio-individual basis. If having a better understanding of whom God created you to be interests you, and if you have a nagging space in your heart you need to fill, Carrie invites you to take a journey with her through this book to help discover how to tap into the good life: the life God intended you to live! Who You CHOOSE to be matters, and you do get to CHOOSE!

You Are What You Choose

The Habits of Mind That Really Determine How We Make Decisions

The hidden patterns behind the way we make decisions Several recent books, from Blink to Freakonomics to Predictably Irrational, have examined how people make choices. But none explain why different people have such different styles of decision making—and why those styles seem consistent across many contexts. For instance, why is a gambler always a gambler, whether at work, on the highway, or in a voting booth? Scott de Marchi and James T. Hamilton present a new theory about how we decide, based on an extensive survey of more than thirty thousand subjects. They show that each of us possesses six core traits that shape every decision, from what to have for lunch to where to invest. We go with “the usual” way of deciding whenever there’s a trade-off between current and future happiness, when facing the risk of a bad outcome, or when a choice might hurt other people. We’re also consistent about how much information we want and how much we care about the opinions of others. Readers can determine their own decision-making profile with a test in the book. Once they understand the six core traits, they’ll have a big advantage in their marketing campaigns, management strategies, investments, and many other contexts.
