I just got my contributor’s copy yesterday of Women Reinvented: True Stories of Empowerment and Change. This is a project I was very happy to be a part of. The book is published by LaChance Publishing, and proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to The Healing Project, a not-for-profit organization created to support those with chronic and life-threatening illnesses.
Women Reinvented is the 9th book in the “Voices of” series. Other titles in the series deal with alcoholism, Alzheimer’s, autism, bipolar disorder, caregiving, breast cancer, lung cancer, and multiple sclerosis– tough topics dealt with honestly. Having read stories from several volumes in the series, including Women Reinvented, I can heartily recommend the series for anyone who is dealing with one of these issues, has a friend or loved one dealing with any of these issues, or who just wants to be more educated on these topics.
Thirty-one women, including myself, contributed their stories to Women Reinvented. My story, The Best of All Worlds, deals with career decisions I was faced with, after becoming a mother for the first time. Other stories deal with the aftermath of being raped, starting again after a divorce, career changes, illness and recovery, and… well, anything having to do with reinvention!The book is divided into four sections: “Reclaiming Myself”, “Finding My Calling”, “Of Marriage and Motherhood”, and “My Spirit Renewed”. I look forward to reading all of the stories, and I hope you will too!
