Power Stories Book Cover
“You are invited to come on a journey as thirteen ancient goddesses remind you of the power and beauty of the feminine aspects within you. Whatever your gender may be, the twenty-six stories in this book will touch the very heart of the strong feminine presence within you and awaken parts of you that may have been asleep. What power story lies deep within you wanting to be told? Contained within this volume, you will find inspiration, resources, knowledge, and suggestions that will support you in tapping into your own victories.”


“This book definitely took me to another space inside myself, into the womb, where I was able to connect the energy of the goddess and the energy of the Earth Count together to find a space that wanted to heal.  It made me feel that part of the goddess and Earth energy! It helped me to connect to the story inside myself as I read through the pages–bubbling up and coming present.”

-Lori’ Nelson


I found that each story was deeply moving–to the point where I had to pause and put the manuscript down after each one in order to digest the experience. For me, reading each story was a little like being shown a movie filled with vivid, personal images.   Each author writes in her own voice, but what each one has in common is openness and candor. It would even be fair to say they are intimate. I had the feeling of being trusted–the kind of feeling one gets when someone tells you a highly personal secret. “

-Greg Leach


“This book took me on a journey and helped me touch the feminine aspect of my soul–the part of me that I was afraid to engage with. It helped me connect with the strength of my goddess within. I realized the power in vulnerability and it sometimes moved me to tears. Through those tears, I released the hidden wounds that were still there from the past.”
