First the name “Goodfinding” attracted my attention as a clever and warm-hearted summation of William DeFoore’s core philosophy. Then in page after page of life experience, practical wisdom, and useful tools and perspectives, I found my mood brighten along with my faith in humanity. Thank God we have teachers like William to share essential knowledge so critical to humankind in these troubled times.

Dr. William DeFoore’s book, Goodfinding, is inspirational. It manages to describe important, complex systems in easily understandable terms. The basic principles outlined in Goodfinding are laid out in very practical vignettes that make them immediately accessible to the person ready to put them in practice. Most impressive is Dr. DeFoore’s ability to put into practice, through his easy manner of relating to the reader, the very principles he describes in the text designed to promote self-confidence, self-acceptance, compassion, and optimism.

In Goodfinding, Dr. William DeFoore has made available to all of us a path, a way of using our mind and heart to make a positive contribution to life, starting with our own. It’s so clear: If we are likely to find what we are looking for, why not look for what is ‘good’? And when we truly appreciate people and things, we live up to the original meaning of that word: we see the positive value and quality of what is there.

Dr. John. J. Scherer, Author, Leadership Development Facilitator


The Goodfinding practice of gratitude, appreciation, and optimism changed my everyday life immediately.  The whole book is a resource of practical self-care I’ll come back to regularly.

As a professional in the financial planning industry, I find that people seem to worry about their money more than they give, invest, or spend it.  Dr. DeFoore’s chapter on finance empowers readers to take control of their financial story and begin to shape their dreams.
