PS – If you want to read the VERY BEST of my work ASAP, I invite you to join many of your fellow readers in the Launch Team for my new book, You Don’t Owe Anyone: Free Yourself from the Weight of Expectations!
It’s about how I realized that actually, I don’t owe anybody anything. For years I thought I did. I was world class at being the good girl, the people pleaser, and the super Christian. (I was in a cult, and I was good at it!) The book is about how I got free from all of that, free from the weight of expectations.
When you join, you’ll get access to an advance digital copy of the book, and my everlasting gratitude for helping to get the word out.
