Two time best-selling inspirational publisher Linda Joy brings you this soul-inspiring collection of stories from twenty-seven amazing women.

Through trials and triumphs great and small, these fearless female leaders prove that true fulfillment is the result of connecting to inner wisdom and making choices which honor the truths revealed there. Three journaling prompts after each story help you delve deeper into the vital lessons these women’s experiences have to offer.

These honest, authentic stories from real women will make you smile, cry, and maybe even laugh out loud—but more importantly, they’ll prove to you that everyone, no matter her background or circumstances, can make the powerful choice to be happy!




















    Publisher Linda Joy shares a piece of her personal story and introduces readers to the concept that happiness is a choice we can all make.



    At the most trying moments in their lives, these women laid down their own law and chose happiness and empowerment over sickness, poverty, addiction and victimhood. Authors Peggy Nolan, Boni Lonnsburry, Mal Duane, and Tiffany Kane share their powerful and definitive moments of choice.


    Sometimes, moving forward requires us to leave behind everything we know-even the person we thought we were. Authors Marianne MacKenzie, Christy Whitman, Lisa Wells, and Linda Bard show us how divorce, loss of control, and even the trauma of losing a loved one can become a gateway to a new and brighter life.


    Creating the life your soul wants is one of the most powerful ways to choose happiness. Alexa Linton, Kristi Ling, Stacey Hoffer Weckstein, and Shann Vander Leek shed their golden handcuffs and the world’s expectations to dive into the richness of soul-powered, feminine-focused work.


    By setting down the burdens of the past, we can embrace the present, and our own happiness, with open arms. Shelley Lundquist, Laura Clark, Debra L. Reble, PhD , and Stacey Curnow relate their heart-felt stories of forgiveness and release.


    When we heal ourselves, we can begin to heal the world. Authors Mary E. Pritchard, PhD, Mia Moran, and Sangita Patel offer up their healing journeys as inspiration and tangible proof that healing is always possible if we believe in ourselves.


    Creating healthy connections to ourselves, our higher power(s), and the ones we love is a powerful way to invite joy and grace into our lives. Sandi Gordon, Lynda Monk, Lisa Marie Rosati and Shelley Riutta share their uplifting stories of connection and compassion.


    There is no love more essential to creating happiness that the love that we have for ourselves. Through partnership, friendship, and deep, abiding love, Stacey Martino, Tina van Leuven, Kellyann Schaefer, and Wendy Van de Poll learned how to love themselves, and their lives, unconditionally.


    Bryna Rene, Editor for Inspired Living Publishing, shares her own story of choosing happiness and offers her thoughts on the stories in this inspiring book.
