The simple path to peace … what Unite in Prayer is all about

Coming full circle into my calling as a writer and coach.

Sometimes, I struggle to take compliments because I’m not sure if I agree with them or I’m being praised for something I don’t particularly value. But one compliment I received years ago went straight into my soul like a lightbulb because it was from someone I respected and deep down, I knew it was true: “You […]
