    One of the things that makes someone wise is opening to new questions that lead you down paths you never saw coming. I highly recommend Tina's book to everyone that breathes and thinks. Tina's book opened my eyes and my soul to areas I had thought I had clarity around my faith. I realized quickly into her book that I was still making choices based on beliefs from my religious upbringing. That is not to say those beliefs were wrong, just that they were not the whole picture and that they no longer served me. I was working from a lot of guilt places. I am beginning to see how I can let that go. Reading this book and working through the well thought out and insight filled exercises has helped me open new pathways for moving forward in my life. I learned new questions to ask that unlocked a deeper connection to my spirit. Buy this book for yourself and for everyone you love.
