Your Roots Are Showing: Overcoming any stigma of our "roots" can be a daunting task. Real, Raw, Honest and Inspiring. Empowers women to believe in and love themselves. Paperback – March 4, 2014
"Inspirational and supporting...like a good bra! YRAS may not be
a trilogy and it may not be made into a movie, but it is a book
you'll come back to time and time again. With advice and support
for different hardships you may face, YRAS is like a wise girlfriend;
one that may make you cry (the good kind of tears), make you
laugh, and let you know you're not alone. This book is
inspirational, and worth buying ten times over." -SK
I am usually not a big fan of "self Help" books, but my best friend gave me this book as a birthday gift. What a great read! The author approaches life's challenges in a very positive fashion, sharing stories of women who have overcome personal tragedies, health issues. This is truly a very touching and poignant collection of wonderful tips to get your life back on track. It reminds us that we have the power to become whatever we want to be.It is one of those books that you want to keep close at hand when you start to feel bad about yourself - pick it up and reread the book.
What a great book! Certainly not your typical "self help" book. It is a lovely collection of real life stories from women who have experienced personal and professional challenges in their lives. Christine has such a positive approach in addressing these challenges as she walks us through how to find the courage to set our own destiny, to love ourselves, and to embrace our failures and turn them into successes. This was such a good read that I bought several copies and took it to my monthly book club. This book provided for some lively discussions, great laughs, and even a few tears.
A Life Changing Book!
If you are looking for some sound and compassionate advice on how to become a happier person, how to love and respect yourself, and how to overcome the many obstacles that are keeping you from being the best...you need to read this book! At times I thought this author was looking into my soul and telling my story. Thank you Ms. Spencer for giving your readers the courage to overcome the heartaches, the failures, the losses etc...in life that get in the way of us being the best we can, and knowing that's good enough!
My regular flight from NY to LA usually leaves me in a bad mood, but this time I arrived with my mind and spirit lifted! Thankfully, I was loaned a copy of "Your Roots are Showing" by the passenger next to me. Wow! The narratives were captivating and I took so much comfort from the insightful content from the author. I now have my own copy and will be sharing this little gem with my friends, family and the next woman I meet in seat 19F! Must read!
From the Author
How amazing it would be when we told our story, there were no more sorrow, no more pain. We healed ourselves, and found our strength in our story and sharing that story with others - You inspired and empowered others with hope and possibilities. How beautiful would that be?
We all are a little broken...and that's OKAY.
As a women, we tend to take on the world, we play many parts; anyone who has juggled motherhood, career, education, significant relationships, household management, etc... can resonate. We are all in this together; like the threads woven through the fabric of our lives to create a beautiful and meaningful tapestry.
Overcoming, any stigma of our "roots" - can be a daunting task. My question to you is, Do you allow these roots to define you?
