5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired and motivated December 6, 2011
I don't usually read motivational books (too depressing!) but since I know one of the women in this book, and KNOW how remarkable she is, (as I am sure are all of the women in this book), I think it is time to seek out other womens stories and be inspired and motivated to make the change I need to ,or accept that everything is as it should be and embrace my whole being.

3.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING February 18, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Many of the stories are shared out of rich human experiences but I found some to be fairly shallow. Perhaps the editor could have been more selective. It's quality is insufficient for the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars From the Heart January 17, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for people who need a spiritual lift. Being an author, I was also honored to have my article in this book.

When we are in certain situations and we feel helpless, it's good to read how someone else pulled through what your suffering with in life. People need to find hope and strength to reach peace, and I believe these stories will help you get there. It's worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn, Grow, Be Inspired May 3, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You deserve this book! This collection of true stories will help you when you have run out of energy, hope and inspiration. In full disclosure, I am one of the featured writers in the book--but PLEASE don't let my words cast any doubt about the book's value. The chapters in the book are divided into helpful categories such as Inspiration or Making It. The joy is that you don't have to read the book in any order. Just select any heading or title that speaks to you. There are stories about business, friendship, leadership and many other life circumstances. Enjoy!
