    Hi Danette –
    I have to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the inspiration and help you are to me! 2 years ago I joined your 30-day challenge, and have been a huge fan of your meditations, workouts, and eating plans ever since. I lost touch with you and your site for quite a while and recently felt the urge to find your help again. I did not know about your book until today! I just ordered my copy after watching your short video here about how it came to be. When you asked here on this website if anyone has ever asked ME to write a book? Yes -every day of my life! For as long as I can remember – when people hear tiny bits of my story, they beg me to write a book! At one point I was inspired with a title and chapter headings with short outlines of each chapter. I even secured a website with the same name as the book. Unfortunately, I came across even greater challenges than I had overcome before, and could not find the mental or physical wherewithal to move forward with that dream. The computer where I had the notes and outlines was stolen when we were burglarized at one point, and for the longest time, I just felt like there was not a possibility of making that dream come true. Then as I continued to face even greater challenges that I was NOT overcoming for quite some time – I felt an even greater sense of loss and an absolute lack of confidence or congruency in telling my inspirational story of overcoming the hell I lived through, because, for quite some time, I was no longer overcoming the daggers thrown at me! How could I tell an inspirational story when I found myself wanting to die and not being able to see the light any longer? Recently, I have begun putting the pieces back together. I am recreating my life and once again providing a new framework for myself and especially for my children to find hope, joy, love, healing, and more. Recently, the thoughts of creating a blog, or vlog, and writing a book have been racing around in my head once again. I looked up your website today to find some of the inspirational meditations that once transformed my mindset and I came across this page about your book. The tears flowed down my cheeks as I watched your video. I am so excited to read it and allow the happiness and inspiration flow. Thank you again …. Namaste
