Description

Embrace your courageous spirit! Why do some women have the courage to develop their full potential, fight injustice, embrace faith, and choose their own path? Author Sandra Ford Walston believes that courage is part of "every" woman's "heart center." By returning to the original definition-the Old French "corage," meaning "heart and spirit"-she shows how this ancient female virtue fits in our world today, and reveals why recognizing ourselves as courageous women is vital to knowing who we are and living life to its fullest. "Courage" validates and honors the actions of everyday women by offering inspirational stories about how reclaiming courage has changed their lives-and can change yours. Drawing on your forgotten, yet unlimited reservoir of courage, the process teaches you how to design your own action plan. After looking deep within for your own patterns of behavior, you'll learn to stop living in the shadow of lost opportunities, change your language to change your life, overcome humiliation and confront abuse, and make conscious choices to live your dream. Sandra Ford Walston is a woman who has embraced her own courage and transformed her life. In this book, Sandra will be your guide as she shows you, your daughters, your friends, and the men who love you how to reclaim your birthright and live a full, empowered life guided by your courageous heart and spirit.show more
