Now available with an updated look and a larger format for easier reading,The Woman's Book of Courage is a little book with a big message--we can take charge of our lives, stop trying to please all of the (other) people all of the time, and live happily with ourselves and others right now (not at all the same as happily ever after as soon as...). Psychotherapist Sue Patton Thoele is on a mission to help each and every woman uncover her own authentic self and tap into her own wellspring of wisdom and inner-strength. Thoele offers practical tools and gentle guidance to aid in setting boundaries, changing self-defeating behaviors, and increasing passion for themselves and others.
In more than a hundred short entries, Thoele offers meditations, affirmations, and true stories, including deeply personal, often humorous, revelatory stories of her own rocky path of personal growth. The reflections are presented in twelve chapters that can be tapped into randomly or used as a monthly meditation guide. Among the "A Woman Has the Courage to..." chapters are: Create Peace of Mind; Tame and Transform Her Dragons; Make Her Own Choices; Develop Healthy Relationships; Take Risks and Change; and Recognize Rainbows. Since it was first published, A Woman's Book of Courage has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of women. Simple, passionate, profound, this edition will find a place in the hearts of hundreds of thousands more.
