Thoele offers practical tools and gentle guidance to aid in setting boundaries, changing selfdefeating behaviors, and increasing passion for themselves and others.

In more than a hundred short entries, Thoele offers meditations, affirmations, and true stories, including deeply personal, often humorous, revelatory stories of her own rocky path of personal growth. The reflections are presented in twelve chapters that can be tapped into randomly or used as a monthly meditation guide. Among the “A Woman Has the Courage to...” chapters are: Create Peace of Mind; Tame and Transform Her Dragons; Make Her Own Choices; Develop Healthy Relationships; Take Risks and Change; and Recognize Rainbows.

Since it was first published, The Woman’s Book of Courage has touched
the lives of hundreds of thousands of women. Simple, passionate, profound, this edition will find a place in the hearts of hundreds of thousands more.
