Letters from a Better Me

By

THE EMPOWERED WOMAN follows the belief system that is best explained in a quote by Byron Katie: “The most attractive thing about the Buddha was that he saved one person: himself. That’s all he needed to save; when he saved himself, he saved the whole world.”

The letters work in different ways depending on the chapter and part of the book.  

In the first part [Awareness], the reader gets to see the darkness they are carrying around with them. Seeing the problem is the first stage of transformation. The reader is able to use the letters in the book as inspiration and permission to release their emotions in their own letters. This is the first step in being set free from our own darkness.

Then in Part II, the reader will start to embrace forgiveness and letting go [Acceptance]. They get the tools to build self-worth and move into gratitude. Getting to a place of gratitude is a huge piece in the transformation to creating positive change. The reader will come out of this section being grateful for some of their most painful times. With these newly skills acquired, readers will be open to see different and more positive perspectives of themselves and others. The letters they write will be more transformative in nature moving from fear to a more loving and compassionate focus, which in turn creates a passion for life.

Finally in Part III [Action], readers create action plans. The letters become commitments. It’s not as much about releasing emotions like the first part or increasing passion like the second part, it’s about creating a long-lasting energy, focus, and commitment to positive change. Chapter Seven will lead the reader into creating personal contracts with themselves that represent what they want in their lives and how they want to represent themselves to the world, which includes relationships with self and others, service to others, and focusing on the positive changes they want to see in the world. This section is where the reader’s passion toward the positive will really emerge. In Chapter Eight, the reader will be guided through the art and the power of staying present. This gives them tools to be active advocates for themselves and others without having to be against someone else. Finally, Chapter Nine supports the reader to stay on the path of the empowered woman by taking action from a loving place. The more the reader follows the tools given in each section, the more transformed they will feel by the end of the book.

The Checklist Book

By

Many people are disorganized and overwhelmed and fall asleep every night feeling like, “I didn’t accomplish enough. There’s still so much to do.”

Many people rely on digital tools (phone apps, online calendars, alerts, reminders, etc.) to stay organized, but all the digital noise (and excessive screen time) leaves us feeling drained and sick.

Many people cram their day with nonstop tasks and chores, while leaving almost no space for mental and physical health, quality time with loved ones, quiet time alone, time in nature, and other experiences that bring beauty into our lives.

Many people wildly overestimate what they can realistically achieve in a single day, and then continually feel “behind.”


Solution: Un-complicate things. Plan your day in a thoughtful and realistic way. Get back to basics. Simple daily checklist. One piece of paper. A pen. A clipboard. A checklist you can physically hold in your hands, not a list on your computer or phone.

A checklist is one of the world’s oldest, simplest, and best productivity systems, dating all the way back to the Roman Empire. Just like our modern culture has rediscovered yoga (an ancient practice with so many benefits) it’s time to rediscover…the art of the checklist!

The Difficult Mother-Daughter Relationship Journal

By

#1 New Release in Parent & Adult Child Relationships ─ Healing for Mothers and Daughters

A compassionate guide: Karen C.L. Anderson is a storyteller, feminist, and speaker who views the world through the lens of curiosity and fascination. As a mother-daughter relationship expert, she gently guides readers through revealing painful patterns in their relationships to finding ultimate healing. Her book isn’t a quick fix. Rather, she writes to help mothers and daughters heal and either reconcile or peacefully separate.

Tips and tools for healing: Anderson comes prepared in this book to offer readers practical advice for creating a healthier relationship. Her previous book, The Peaceful Daughter’s Guide to Separating from a Difficult Mother, was an international bestseller, and she offers new practical wisdom in this journal. From setting healthy boundaries to creating a new outlook, Anderson helps readers create peace in their troubled relationships.

You’re not alone in the struggle: Studies suggest that nearly 30% of women have been estranged from their mothers at some point. It can be difficult to talk about the strain of mother and daughter relationships because they are so often glorified in our society as one of the most precious bonds. If anything, however, that makes them more important to talk about.

Anderson’s book is ideal for mothers and daughters alike, whether they read it separately or together. Open it up and find:

  • Various prompts and practices for building a relationship around healthy interdependence rather than dysfunctional codependence
  • A way to transform things that create pain into a source of wisdom and creativity
  • An informative and intriguing self-care gift for women in the form of a healing journal

Readers of self-help books such as Mothers Who Can’t LoveAdult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents, and Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters will find a wonderful source of help and healing in Anderson’s The Difficult Mother-Daughter Relationship Journal.

Achieve Your Goal in 66 Days

Create new habits—and stick with them: Routines can be hard to establish. Often, our goals require us to make difficult changes in our daily lives. This daily journal by cutting-edge speaker and bestselling author Matthew Mockridge serves as a “training partner” to help us create and firmly integrate healthy routines into everyday life.

Find passion through practice: We don’t need to find our true passion before we commit to a consistent routine. As readers of the 66 Day Journal will learn, it is only through maintaining regular habits that true passion emerges. When we work hard to become good at something, such as healthy eating, maintaining a regular sleep schedule, or exercising regularly, we’ll find that our passion for the topic grows.

Ask quality questions, have a quality life: If we aren’t asking ourselves the important questions—“What am I proud of? What could I have done better?”—then maintaining healthy habits is harder than ever. This guided journal walks us through the difficult questions we should be asking ourselves every day. The carefully constructed questions combine mindfulness, positive psychology, and proven strategies for increased productivity to help you stay on track.

Dive into Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal and learn how to:

  • Break down overwhelming “marathon” goals into 66 achievable mini goals
  • Set a goal using the SMART theory (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound)
  • Visualize where you want to be and work to get there
