Book Review:
This is a well-written book and easy to follow along with. This book helps the reader to recognize the phase they are in at this point in their life. This book provides examples, stories and guidance to help with your personal transformation. A few journal pages and worksheets are included in the book for the reader to unitize. The reader will be able to move back and forth between the chapters as needed. There are also questions throughout the chapters to answer.
I highly recommend this book and will be sharing it with the ladies in my empowerment group.
