It was everything: emotional, sweet, funny, socially relevant, politically important, real and raw, hopeful and positive, beautiful, sad, mysterious, scary, informative, horrific... everything! It is a Middle-Grade/Young Adult fiction book. It's only 203 pages, I think.

Choosing Peace in Each Moment: Two-Part Episode (podcast)

Today's episode is a two-parter because I merged two shorter episodes that both explored the same concept: inner peace. More importantly, choosing peace for yourself, your life, and in each moment. We always have a choice. We get to choose reaction, hurt, hate, disconnection, or worthiness, clarity, beauty, love, and peace. I choose peace.
