More About This Title A Pebble for Your Thoughts


#1 Amazon New Release! ― Kindness Rocks as seen on the Today show

Fans of The Kindness Challenge and the Chicken Soup For The Soul books will love A Pebble for Your Thoughts.

A rock for each kindness: It all started with a single stone on a beach in Cape Cod and now spans the globe. The Kindness Rocks Project, founded by Megan Murphy, is based on the profound truth that one kind message at the right moment can change someone’s day, their outlook, and their whole life. The project has become an international grassroots movement! The messages on these thoughtful pebbles take many forms: gratitude, affirmations, encouragement, offers of hope, all signposts along the way for someone to find at exactly the right time.

Kindness matters: Now more than ever, people are longing for kindness and connection. During these uncertain times, daily news reports focus on disturbing events of terrorism, gun violence, senseless murders and political bickering. We are bombarded with images that evoke fear and hostility. A Pebble for Your Thoughts provides a positive counteraction to all this negativity.

Learn to be kinder to yourself and others: Sometimes, all it takes is just one simple positive message to change your perspective and that is what this book aims to do. Through visual photos of inspirational Kindness rocks, readers can connect the meaning of the rock to their life situations or circumstances. Instructions on how to create your own rock are also included.

What people will learn from this book:

  • How to cultivate compassion and connection
  • How to grow through hard times
  • Affirmations to boost self-esteem and offer hope in hard times
  • How one act of kindness can change a life
  • A completely unique kind of art therapy for healing and helping

Small acts of kindness are one of the few things every person is capable of - regardless of age, geography, socioeconomic status, education, occupation - it just takes intention. Teaching our children about their power to create positive ripples of hope everyday and wherever they find themselves, and the cumulative impact of all those small acts of kindness, is one of the most powerful lessons we can impart to our children. " - Molly Yuska, Founder of Project Giving Kids

“Kindness is the great healer that lives inside of you. No matter what hardships you face - grief, anger, frustration, despair - there is a part of you that is your own best friend, even if you have felt estranged from yourself for years. Welcome yourself back home, knowing that self-compassion is your birthright, your greatest resource. Offering yourself kindness is how you bear the unbearable, how you begin to heal yourself, and how you become a beacon of hope to other people in need. All you have to do is show you care.”
- Heather Stang, MA, C-IAYT, author of Mindfulness & Grief
