Begin 2016 with A PLACE CALLED PEACE

We can all use a little encouragement at the beginning of a new year.  And I know we can use a little peace.

The fabulous, fellow midlife blogger, GLENDA HARRISON brings us encouragement in her new book, A PLACE CALLED PEACE.

I sat down to read some of it recently and did not get up until I had finished all of it.

In some ways, Glenda and I have much in common.  Both of us were discouraged and often defeated by important people in our lives...Glenda by her father and I by my mother.  She tells her poignant and open story of trials which now have strengthened her, molded her, and resulted in victory.  She became an I MATTER woman upon realizing it was time to remove toxic people from her life and move forward.

Once she accepted her gifts and talents and did not allow others to define who she was, Glenda soared, like a beautiful butterfly bursting from its cocoon....the theme of her story. 

She founded a wonderful non-profit organization, started a successful blog, and wrote her story.  She joins me in April on the speaker team for BAM 2016

If you need encouragement or just want to read about a talented fellow blogger, then order A PLACE CALLED PEACE, HERE.

See you Sunday for a different HIT YOUR STYLE SWEET SPOT, the topic is a reader request!

Have a wonderful Saturday!


  1. Thank you for sharing my story, Pam. I hope others will take the journey to Peace with me.

  2. Happy New Years, everyone! May your year be blessed.

  3. Glenda is such a vibrant woman, a lot like you Pam - I look forward to reading her story. xox


  4. Thank you for sharing this and I look forward to her story

  5. I read her blog for the first time this week. Look forward to seeing both of you at BAM!

  6. I enjoy reading excerpts from her book through your eyes.... very interesting indeed. On another note, I was very surprised to see the BAM Conference Banner. I have never heard about it and I'm an over 50's Blogger/Vlogger on YouTube as well. Actually, here's the list of ladies on Youtube that are over 50 if you're interested in sending out invites to them. http://maturewomenofyoutube.blogspot.com/

  7. I read Glenda's book and found encouragement. I highly recommend it. I too have much in common with her, and being on my own journey now know that peace is there for each of us. I am using the book as I forge ahead. Glenda is honest and open in the book. She is "real", which makes her story that much more inspirational. It applies to any journey you may be on. Encouragement for a new year and a new beginning!

  8. Sounds like a really great book. I would love to live a more peace filled life, rather than so stressful.

  9. Oh what fun, two bloggers I have been following for a long time, in one post. I never knew you were discouraged by your mother (probably should have paid more attention. I appologize).


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
