Reviews for the Book
My friend gifted me a copy of this e-book... I began reading as the author gives us a little DARE within this beautifully written book. A dare and journey of self-discovery to become who we are as women more authentically and genuinely is the only way I can explain what I have just read. She inspires and motivates you, makes you dig deep, and shares how to gather your nerve to enjoy the bounty and bliss 'LIFE' offers each of us. By reading the prose, stop and FEEL as she guides you through the book, you will feel the serenity and positive flow wash over you with a true awakening of self-care, self-love, and empowerment you didn't know you had inside you, seriously. I highly, highly recommend this book to all women to read. - Cat Is An Avid Reader.
