Transitions CoverI’m so honored to be a contributing author to Christine Bronstein’s new book Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God: 73 Women on Life’s Transitions (available online and in stores this Saturday). Included with my chapter on ‘The Unexpected Transition’ and the growth of SocialMoms, are topics ranging from becoming a mother to dealing with religion, recovery from disease and addiction to starting a business. This new anthology of essays and art sheds light on all the times along our evolution when changes shake us up and make us who we are.

Transitions features work from powerful women like NY Times best-selling authors Kelly Corrigan and Gabrielle Bernstein, notable trailblazers like Belva Davis and Rita Henley Jensen, esteemed businesswomen like Janet Hanson as well as many new women, eager to share how transitions in their lives brought them unexpected gifts, lessons, and growth. Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God: 73 Women on Life’s Transitions is the handbook for all women to know they are not alone as they navigate through the many transitions we go through in life.

Anyone who buys Transitions anthology before midnight on May 4 will receive a free ebook of the first anthology on Connections (Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God: 51 Women Reveal the Power of Positive Female Connection) and will be entered to win a $500 gift certificate to the Apple store!

Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God: 73 Women on Life’s Transitions shares stories of women who handle transitions- good, bad, and ugly- with grace, bravery, wit, and wisdom. And they are better for it. Read this book if you want to feel like you’re catching up with an old friend. And be prepared to see yourself in many of the stories.
