Mary Anne Radmacher has a way of inviting those who hear or read her words to change their lives, and in Live Boldly, she continues on that engaging path.

In the book, she identifies an assortment of qualities for our life's journey and defines each as it relates to laughing loudly, loving truly, playing often, working smart, and sharing your heart. Each definition is followed by a quote, a poem, or an aphorism that explores the quality. Stories culled from Mary Anne's own life and teaching practice are followed by an invitation to readers to listen more closely to their lives, to give themselves what they need and to step back into their daily lives knowing they can choose in that moment, to live boldly by their own definition.

Whether readers need or want justice or gratitude, endurance or celebration, comfort or challenge, the process is the same - read and listen to the word, enter into its meaning in the lives of others and bring that meaning to your own life. Other qualities include generosity, compassion, leadership - 34 in all!

From the book:
Living boldly is an exercise, a practice in reaching for qualities that will help you strengthen what is already strong within you but may need a little muscle work, some fine-tuning. It's also a way to identify what is not naturally present in you (or only present in what seems small measure) and put it there. Borrow it, in a sense, if only for a day.
