Amazon Launch

It's finally here! Launch day on Amazon. Dear Girls is now available for Purchase. Let me tell you why you might want to buy this book.

Dear Girls is all about body image. It is written for girls age 12 and up. It is about one girl's journey from body hatred and eating disorders to health and healing. It is a message of hope, of health, of forgiveness, of self-care and empowerment. This is a message our daughters (and maybe even we as mothers) need. Dear Girls is written in the form of letters, and though names of people and places were changed to protect privacy, the events described in this work are true.

I wanted to be honest and real with people about the dangers of certain ways we think of ourselves and others. I wanted to talk about competing and comparing, and how damaging that can be. Most of all, I wanted my girls to know that the key to unlocking their power and potential in this world (and they will be powerful) is to look past how they look, and see what they can give. What we look like is barely a part of who we are, and once we realize that and focus on who we are and what we can do, all kinds of opportunities open up for us. I know, because I'm experiencing it now. Please pin this to your "Books" board, please pass this on to neighbors and friends. I believe in this message, and I know you all know people who might need to be reminded of it right now. Thank you so much for your help and support. I'd love your comments!

Launch Party!

I am so excited about this party I can hardly stand it. Not only is it at one of the COOLEST venues in Salt Lake City, Beauty Redefined is coming to give one of their life-changing presentations for us! Then there's the food, which I planned so it will be some of my favorite things. Oh, and a crowd of my friends, family, and future friends in one room celebrating the launch of this beautiful book....See why I'm out of control excited??

The party is on Tuesday November 27 from 7-9pm. The Church House (which is not a church anymore, that's just it's name) is located in Salt Lake at 129 North 600 West. Parking is available on both sides of the street as well as in the parking lot to the south of the building. Enter through the main doors. Books will be available for purchase and signing (if you want that kind of thing). Please either RSVP here, or let me know in a comment here if you can attend. The more the merrier, we want plenty of people (especially moms and teens) to experience this party!
