Sometimes maybe dreams don’t come true.

The Countdown begins-
just a few days until the release of “Peace For A Lifetime”!!!!!
So here we are. Two days until the March 7 release! Yet somewhere inside of us there is the question, do I really need this book? With so many books out there, is this a book I should actually reach out and purchase? Can I really experience peace for a lifetime?

Our wounds leave us feeling frail, broken, desperately unwhole. It seems like everyone around us must be living the abundant life, but with our wounds, that kind of life feels like an impossibility. We feel helpless. Hopeless.
A wise friend once told me, “Lisa, don’t listen to what a person says, watch what they do; what they do will tell you everything about what they believe.”
Most of us have had little training in understanding emotions or how to effectively deal with emotions in life.

Few of us have had a balanced approach in dealing with our feelings modeled for us within our childhood families.
