The type of courage she exudes throughout her journey remains a testament to the incredible power of forgiveness, acceptance, and the resilience of the human spirit. Instead of obsessing over the roadblocks set in our path, the author challenges us to let the light in and illuminate the lessons that each struggle can share with us. Ask not, “Why me?” Ask instead, “What have I learned?” It is time to recognize the significance of our suffering and let it mold us into a stronger and more resilient person. Carefully detailed and purposefully poignant, Finding My Way plays out not as a memoir of the author’s journey to accept courage and faith into her life, but as a road map for self-reflection, for motivating others to seek out personal change.

We go from victim to victor, as we learn to set boundaries and take personal responsibility for everything that we allow into our life. • Embracing change as a catalyst towards new beginnings. • Dismantling our self-sabotaging habits, fears and beliefs, in order to find inner peace. To help aid us in our journey to a changed perspective, the book contains a workbook companion that includes exercises to help reshape our mindset when it comes to the challenges we face. Inspiring, poignant, and compelling to the end! A must-read for anyone struggling to find peace in this crazy world!”
