The Heart and Spirit of Every Woman
Reclaiming the Forgotten Virtue
Embrace your courageous spirit! Why do some women have the courage to develop their full potential, fight injustice, embrace faith, and choose their own path? Are they the exceptional few, or can every woman claim courage to live life on her own terms? Sandra Ford Walston, a nationally renowned speaker and seminar leader, believes that courage is part of every woman’s “heart center.” By returning to the original definition of courage—the Old French corage, meaning “heart and spirit”—she explores where this ancient female virtue fits in our world today, and reveals why recognizing ourselves as courageous women is vital to knowing who we are and living life to our fullest potential.
Historically, the virtue of courage and the actions of everyday women have not been validated or honored. Courage modernizes that perspective by offering inspirational stories about how reclaiming courage has changed the lives of many women. Providing a Three-Step Process for Integrating Courage, this book outlines a blueprint for change and growth. Drawing from your forgotten, yet unlimited reservoir of courage, the process teaches you how to design your own action plan. Beginning by looking deep within for patterns of behavior you exhibit every day, you’ll learn to:
- Stop living in the shadow of lost opportunities
- Overcome humiliation and confront abuse
- Hurdle obstacles and embrace risks
- Change your language to change your life
- Make conscious choices to live your dream
- Raise your daughters to live courageously
