The Sacred Work Of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Paperback – August 8, 2011 by Elaine K. Williams
How often in this life are we really kind to ourselves? How often does the inner voice heap on us unnecessary anxiety and worry rendering the colour of our external world and all its demands a positively vanilla shade by comparison to the colour of our own thoughts? If we are honest about it—we all do it.
Carol Meyer’s Little Book of Be’s is “a call to us all to do less and BE more” encapsulating in her 12 Be’s all you could ever need as a guide to happiness in the present, dissolving the thought patterns that hold us back from our goals and desires.
Carol is offering grandparents raising grandchildren the opportunity to purchase an e-reader copy of her book for $2 and is generously donating half to GRG. To order your copy of the e-book simply click here.
