“Peace for a Lifetime” Book Launch Team Application Coming Soon!!!

The secret is out – my new book, Peace for a Lifetime, is coming in March, 2016!  I’m so excited to share with everyone personal stories, tools and practical life steps that will help people discover and experience peace in every area of their lives.  Yet I cannot do this alone.  There comes a time in every project when words need the collective nurturing and support of community, and this is that time.
