"As a minister, I counsel as many women as I do men. More than any other author, Sue Patton Thoele has helped me understand what it is like to be a woman in today's culture. She writes like an angel yet somehow transcends words and communicates directly to the reader's heart. The Courage to Be Yourself is a classic, a masterpiece, yet it is so honest that each time you read it, it speaks with a fresh, new voice." -- Hugh Prather, author of The Little Book of Letting Go and Spiritual Notes to Myself.
