“I rarely review things but feel this is a must!!!!! This book is life changing! Not only do people help with their amazing stores but they give you references.
I love all the chapters and advise from these people. Each can be for sure relateable to everyone.
I started reading this and said only a few chapters...its written in a way that Im almost done and never get thru books that fast!
Im inspired that people opened up about what they have struggled with and to offer help is incrediable! It takes courage, honesty and Im sure a ton of nerves to be able to talk about things but to write a book and offer so much help encourages me to face my fears and move on!
Im going to for sure mention this book as book club material as hoping to help and teach others its OK to TALK ABOUT THINGS!”

“I enjoyed this book tremendously. It is filled with practical wisdom for living the life you have dreamed about. Chapter 26, "Your Sacred Purpose: Put Your Personal Power and Passion to Work Now!", written by Raven Sinclaire spoke to me most directly. It describes her path of finding her sacred work by integrating her unique gifts with her passions. She provides some very useful exercises to identify your passions and your special strengths. She states "When we start to give reverence to our inner superpowers and pursue our passions, doors begin to open and answers begin to flow" and "When you merge your passion and power into purpose, the result is a transformational offering that has great value." She also provided very practical business and marketing strategies for turning your sacred work into a profitable business enterprise. She concludes with words of encouragement, "Believe that you can spend every day living your passions and giving your gift to the world! It’s what you’re here to do." I feel this book has been very inspirational and highly recommend it to everyone!”

“What a great read. I was especially touched by Christina Beauchemin's words which are simply captivating, truly. With each word I read, I found myself eager to get to the next one. She shares such a personal story of self realization, and yet its power and ability to help transform the readers life jumps off the page at the same time. She writes on such an important topic for humankind; to truly embrace who you are at a deep, foundational level. I love her invitation - to take a few simple steps to see and learn more about me on my journey to embrace Fearlessly Me. Highly Recommend.”

There is something here for everyone, based on both sound spiritual and psychological principles, ideas of how to heal past wounds, ideas of how to forgive and let go of the past, and ideas of how to find your life passion and purpose and create a fulfilling life for yourself.
