Challenge Your Never-Enough Thinking
The idea that we aren’t enough is so deeply ingrained in us and into our culture that it holds sway over pretty much every aspect of our lives. But author and activist Laurie McCammon is here to tell us that it’s all a lie. YOU are enough exactly as you are, and it is only in realizing this truth that we unlock our ability to make our world a better place.
Believe in yourself. Do you think you’re not good enough─not rich enough or thin enough or smart enough─to have the life you want? Time, money, and talent aren’t going to bring us what we’re seeking. The validation we feel we need can only come if we accept ourselves as we are. Laurie McCammon has brought her message of enoughness across the world, presenting at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, and facilitating circles and workshops over the years. This inspirational and transformative book reminds readers of their self-worth and helps them combat lack of self-confidence. By the end, the message will ring true and clear in every reader’s heart: I am enough!
Change the world. “Never-enough” thinking can hurt us in more ways than one. But one of the biggest ways it impacts us is by limiting what we think we are capable of accomplishing. When we accept the truth of our enoughness, our self-image is transformed and we see just how capable we are. McCammon shows readers how developing a sense of enoughness can change not only how you feel about yourself but how you view time, your relationships, your work, and your ability to shape a better world.
Open up this motivational book and learn more about:
- The lie that shapes how we view ourselves
- How to find your own self-worth
- Developing a sense of “enoughness” in today’s world

Janet Conner’s spiritual book Writing Down Your Soul has led to this adult coloring book and guided art journal, full of inspiring prompts and coloring pages to help you reach deep within yourself and connect to the divine. The result? You not only get to color a beautiful picture, but also create a beautiful life.
A peaceful space to reach into yourself and discover your truth. In Writing Down Your Soul, Janet Conner introduced tools to teach readers how to connect to the voice within, where soul knowledge and spiritual breakthroughs occur: "If you want to engage in a vibrant conversation with the wisdom that dwells just a hair below your conscious awareness, write. Write every day, at approximately the same time, with passion, honesty, and the intention of speaking with and listening to the voice within." As a natural extension and follow-up to Writing Down Your Soul, here is a companion coloring book and inspirational journal that offers space for the flow of creative self-exploration.
An adult coloring book full of writing prompts, coloring pages, and space for doodles.

The Soul Discovery Coloring Book invites readers to:
- Noodle: with silence, reflection, and staring off into space, allow images to come
- Doodle: not drawing to replicate, but allowing the picture to flow out of you
- Color: allowing the colors to choose you
- Scribble or soul write: scribbling and journaling because when we soul write, we write fast and messy to get ahead of our conscious mind

Experience Serenity and Hope Daily
A book of joy. Women have a great many challenges to deal with in their lives. Among the most ubiquitous of those challenges is self-care. Too often, we are focused on caring for others and not ourselves. Low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression are all too common when our lives are less fulfilling than they could be. Yet deep within, women have a tremendous spiritual resource―a capacity for real joy that is not dependent on anything external. It is always available, regardless of circumstances. And when women tap into that deep wellspring of joy, nothing is impossible.
Find your inner spirituality. Many self-help books can lead people into further self-judgement. Instead, The Woman’s Book of Joy encourages and inspires women to care more deeply for themselves and to face life’s challenges with courage and joy. It’s a practical motivational book for accessing inner wisdom, enhancing self-esteem, overcoming sorrow, and deepening relationships.
Thinking deeply. The meditations and affirmations in this book will provide you with the opportunity to contemplate a wide range of topics, including:
- Developing awareness
- Letting go
- Believing in your dreams
- Living in the now
- Finding your true purpose
- Practicing kindness
- Being optimistic
- Trusting the universe
- Appreciating life’s blessings
If you found joy in meditation books and inspirational books for women like I've Been Thinking…, Journey to the Heart, and Each Day a New Beginning, you’ll be encouraged and uplifted by The Woman's Book of Joy.
