Their dreams mesh, and they immigrate to Canada to earn the money to build their boat.

My Review for Seeker: A Sea Odyssey

I love memoirs.  I have not turned down a memoir yet, and I have yet to find a memoir I did not like.  Reading Seeker was an amazing story on dreams and survival.  I was swallowed up in the book, it was almost like I was actually a ghost watching everything.  If you like a good story that has love, fate, adventure, and suspense, this is the book for you.  I promise you that you will not be able to put it down.

Blog Tour Stop: Walk Your Way to Better by Joyce Shulman

A book to inspire someone who would like to start walking, but walking with a purpose

Synopsis for Walk Your Way to Better

This is a book about walking your way to better. Everywhere you turn, people, podcasts and gurus promise a simple path to the life you want. But few of them work. Why? Because simply reading the words is rarely enough to call your heart and mind to action. This book is different. Each section provides a thought-starter, insight or story. But I don’t want you to just read it. I want you to read a section and then lace up your sneakers and head out the door. Because while walking, your brain processes in a unique way, enabling you to recognize the things that are truly holding your back and the changes you actually need to make. You will literally Walk Your Way to Better. Along the way, you will forge a powerful connection between your mind and your body. And bonus — you’ll feel better and become fitter.

Review for Walk Your Way to Better

I have to be honest here . . . This book could not have come at a better time.  Between the death of my grandfather, the death of my 15 year old kitten 2 days before my grandfather’s burial, and then my journey to be inducted into the National Society of Leadership and Success, this book has helped me see what I can do.  It has helped me better understand the sadness that I was experiencing as well as the happiness knowing that I am succeeding in my journey.  I highly recommend this book if you want to look deeper into yourself.
