Readers go on a journey that explains the importance of sorting through one's life piece by piece until they reach their goal - wholeness. Using personal experiences to help the readers unpack their emotions while helping them move to a place where they can be authentically themselves. A book that challenges you in every way possible and to push you forward in your personal journey of divine healing.
