Soul Food: Life-Affirming Stories Served with Side Dishes and Just Desserts

New Release: February 28
From $2.99 (Free via Kindle Unlimited)

In these heartwarming and uplifting tales that celebrate the human spirit, we’re offered a glimpse into the lives of a diverse group of characters as they search for clarity, contentment, and resilience in a complicated world. From dealing with heartbreak and loss to fighting for their dreams and standing up for themselves, we see them face their struggles with humor, self-reflection, and tenacity.

But Soul Food is more than just a collection of inspiring, interconnected stories. It's a celebration of the human experience and the rich tapestry of emotions that make us who we are. Through the diverse range of characters and themes, we are reminded of the many ways in which we can find meaning and fulfillment in our lives, despite the challenges we face.

Like a good Sunday brunch, composed of complementary foods from appetizers to dessert, the stories in Soul Food are colorful, homey, and easily digested. They are sure to nourish your body, mind, and spirit, and leave you feeling satisfied and fulfilled. Don't miss out on this delicious feast for the senses.

This standalone companion to Beth Gibbs’s Enlighten Up! (see below) expands the ideas from Enlighten Up! in fictional and often humorous ways, as stories, laughter, and entertainment are nonthreatening ways to learn new skills. Great for light reading, self-reflection, and book clubs. Discussion questions included!

Enlighten Up!: Finding Clarity, Contentment and Resilience in a Complicated World

From $3.99
4.8 stars on Amazon

Want to find more clarity, contentment, and resilience in this complicated world we all live in?

Cultivating self-awareness on a practical everyday down-to-earth level is the first step. When we lack self-awareness, it gets in the way of navigating life’s ups and downs.

Enlighten Up! presents a contemporary view of the five layers of self-awareness based on a 3,000-year-old model that provides a broader foundation for self-exploration than the more well-known mind/body model.
