    Beautifully Empowering!

    Desire to Inspire encourages a sense of personal purpose the way twinkling white lights evoke a sense of magic. After I finished reading this book, I was pretty confident the world is in need of my own unique gifts and I'm empowered to discover the best way to share them.
