In her newest book, In Her Own Words: Women's Wisdom to Move You from Surviving to Thriving, Alison Braithwaite shares her story, and explains with clarity how the stories in this book empowered her and offered her the wisdom she needed to pull her life together, find her voice, discover the courage to embrace her path and the inner freedom to create the life she has always wanted to have. Presenting these stories, she states: “You aren’t alone. You can change your life, let go of what holds you back, and become who you have always longed to be.” By the time you are halfway into reading this book, you can’t agree more with these words. This is a book that puts together the voices of twenty women from different backgrounds and walks of life; women with one common denominator: make a difference by empowering others and pursuing their purpose.

But how did each of these women succeed in transforming their life and leaving a positive impact? How often do you shut off your life just to survive? How much pain do you have to endure to give the world the pleasure of seeing you happy — even when your life is literally breaking apart? How often do you feel like you are in the wrong place, that you missed your path, and that you are doing work not meant for you? Such are some of the questions explored in this book, and the author brings together these inspiring voices, loaded with lessons on change, empowerment, taking control of one’s life, creating a legacy, and achieving real freedom to answer the questions that stir the human spirit.

Some of the voices include Evelyn Encalada Grez, speaking on “Dream as a Caretaker of the Planet,” Jennifer Garbin on “The Power of Diversity,” Laura Kooji on “Getting to Alignment,” and many others. The book is well edited and it delivers the wisdom that unlocks the power that women hold in them, the power to transform their lives and the world around them. Each chapter ends with a series of questions for reflection. In Her Own Words: Women's Wisdom to Move You from Surviving to Thriving is a treasure trove for women who want to make a difference and in this book Alison Braithwaite does what Jack Canfield does in Chicken Soup for the Soul.
