Despite the hurly-burly of our busy lives, we can all make a beneficial impact on the environment, throughout out local community, and within our own hearts. This book of inspired ideas and good deeds conveys how “the power of one”―that is, you―can make a better world, starting today!

Sometimes the smallest gesture makes the biggest difference. This little book shows how to start―with the small, with the particular, with the individual―in order to make a difference in the world.

Random Acts of Kindness features:

  • True stories about acts of kindness and generosity of spirit
  • Suggestions for living more compassionately

The Courage to Be Yourself

By

Embrace The Courage to Be Yourself Authentically

This self growth focused motivational book teaches you how to find yourself. In The Courage to Be Yourself, learn to set boundaries, make peace, and find happiness with who you are in a world that projects perfection onto us.

Target harmful patterns. Surrounded by the pressures of society, we often measure ourselves by impossible standards, causing us to doubt ourselves. When this causes negative self-talk, our happiness inevitably suffers. Unhealthy mindsets can also infiltrate our relationships with others. Women can feel the need to be caretakers and sometimes put others' needs above our own. By identifying these patterns, we can set boundaries and target areas that need change—so you can love yourself properly.

Become a loving friend to yourself. While all of us certainly have a calling to love others, it is just as important to give that same love to yourself. It feels good to be yourself, but you must find yourself first. In this emotional strength book, Patton shares impactful stories to show readers how to journey from a place of fear to a life of courageous self-acceptance and real love.

Inside The Courage to Be Yourself, you’ll find:

  • How to find and be yourself through the pressures of today
  • Stories of growth and healing from Patton and other women
  • How to set boundaries, communicate more effectively, and change self-deprecating behaviors

If you liked Courage Is Calling, The Courage to Be Disliked, or How to Be Yourself, you’ll love Courage to Be Yourself.
