Angela has an easy going style has shinned in her new book 'Your Story Matters You Matter A guide to healing, learning from and sharing your story. Reading through it isn't just a great way to understand your why your story matters, she has added very thought provoking questions that lead the reader to begin to master the art of story telling. The grace and gratitude for her appreciation of the art of story telling is so prevalent throughout the book that you begin to know how much you matter. Angela's book is great for those who know they need to write but don't know where to start. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about writing their own story. The book is laid out in such a warm and loving fashion, it's easy to read and very logical. GET THIS BOOK! You need it if you wonder if you matter! You do, I know it and so will you. Angela has a way of sharing the truth with you about how to touch move and inspire. First yourself, then others through this thought provoking and gifted guide.

Angela Schaefers is a wonderful cheerleader for those who have a story to tell; and who doesn't? This book guides a lay person through introspection and active writing to put that story into words. Along the way, she shares the wisdom she's acquired as a cancer survivor, healer, and inspirational speaker. She is a consummate teacher and her book extracts the best from all of us.

Format: Paperback
Angela Schaefers has written a book that is straight from the heart. Her book on healing, coming to grips with the blame, shame, and overcoming guilt is one that any person can relate to. So many people hide behind their guilt, because as a society we are taught to 'not talk about that' - this is where our entire society needs a wake-up call and Angela does just that. She tells her story and then explains why YOU matter and why YOU should tell your story, too. Each of us has a story, or many stories to tell.

Behind every story, there is a lesson. With each lesson, there is wisdom learned. If you do not buy this book, you are going to miss out on easy-to-understand brilliance at its best.
