Books can change the world. 

Books have changed the world.

When you write from your heart, your fears melt. You recognize a safe, familiar place and keep going. 

Stand in your truth and express yourself. Your heart knows everything. You can trust it. Your heart loves you. 

Then, when you have written your book, you will be joyful, confident, and proud … and feel something very close to giggly. 

In other words, you will know peace.

This is the power of writing your book from your heart:

It can change the world—one book at a time.
