A New Look, A New Book & A Giveaway


As part of the launch of my new, improved blog and in honor of the paperback release of one of my favorite authors I am offering 1 lucky reader a signed copy of Katrina Kenison’s new book, Magical Journey: An Apprenticeship in Contentment.

If you haven’t read a Katrina memoir, grab a box of tissues, a cup of tea and get reading…

“Growth and transformation occur not by changing who we are, but as we summon the courage to be who we are.”― Katrina Kenison

I first discovered Kristina’s book, The Gift of an Ordinary Day, entirely by accident. Wading through the Barnes and Nobles aisles one day, I came across an author I was sure was recommended to me. Turns out it was an entirely different author. But, some mistakes become your favorite ones. This book quickly became a beautiful testament to the powers of motherhood and what lays ahead for a woman when she has to redefine the family-unit. It really spoke to me as a young mother getting ready to send my oldest off to college.

Katrina’s newest book, Magical Journey: An Apprenticeship in Contentment, is truly a gem. Inspiring women to accept that we are all intertwined, so entirely similar and often collectively confused.  You quickly learn that beauty and peacefulness can be achieved at any age or in any stage of life.

As I followed Katrina’s journey of self-discovery –  a woman no longer defined only by titles of Mother, Wife, Employee, I felt compelled to see how she deals with this scary, newfound freedom. Embarking on life that doesn’t revolve around family commitments and children’s schedules – while sounding somewhat heavenly – is a foreign concept. I don’t know what I’ll do when I’m faced with it!

With a 40+ body that suddenly decided to age not quite so gracefully and a new passion for spirituality and meaning, I could feel her self-discovery come to life much as I felt my own questions coming to the surface.

“At times, my nostalgia for our family life as it used to be–for our own imperfect, cherished, irretrievable past–is nearly overwhelming.” – Katrina Kenison, Magical Journey: An Apprenticeship in Contentment
