Real people. Real pain. Real healing. Real stories of transformation.
Witness firsthand the challenges that men and women from around the world faced head-on, and how, through their adversity, they became stronger and happier.
Battling a life-threatening illness. Surviving an abusive relationship. Overcoming addiction. Suffering the heartbreaking loss of a child. Wrestling with self-sabotaging thoughts. Losing and finding love… these are just a few of the transformational stories that will encourage you and change your perspective in Chaos to Clarity.
A global voice of contributing authors bared their souls for you. Their unfettered honesty is a gift to all and connects us to the Butterfly Effect of Universal Oneness. Just as the flapping of a tiny wing can change weather patterns around the world, a small inspiration may impart positivity on another’s life. The tears shed from these stories may make waves on distant shores, and your peals of laughter may become someone’s breath of life.
Change is part of the natural order of life. In this inspirational book, authors Cagganello and Kanavos offer their expertise on the spirituality and psychology of change and explain why change is not only necessary, it’s good for you!
Welcome to the heart of our shared humanity. Discover hope for the future and a blueprint for your life in these life-changing pages.
