Reviews for Margaret’s Books

Fearless: Abundant Life Through Infinite Love

If prayer and meditation are a means for developing a relationship with God, this book will not only help you to do that, but it will also challenge you to connect with Him with all of your being. Margaret is eloquent and yet writes in a clear easy to understand down to earth manner. Many of us find ourselves struggling in our prayer or we may find ourselves feeling alone even when we are surrounded by people and engaged. Others of us live in an inner world of anxiety and chaos because we are disconnected from our true selves. Each of these issues are addressed in Margaret’s book, FEARLESS. As you seek out wholeness and connection, Margaret challenges us to live beyond our fears towards a deeper ability to give and receive love through a deeper connection to God, others and ourselves.

More Than Words: the Freedom to Thrive After Trauma

Great resource for parents, teachers and others who work closely with people struggling with the effects of trauma on their lives. Full of inspirational stories and hope that there is a way to move on from trauma. I cannot wait for follow up books!
