In Real Women, Sandra Gooselaw addresses the roles of women today, the opportunities we have and the roles that challenge our individual identity and purpose. Real Women is a collection of stories from real life friendships and lessons in life she has learned along the way. Sometimes our vision of who we are is clouded by life's responsibilities and experiences. Sandra reminds us to maintain balance in our everyday lives, to see ourselves as individuals separate from all our other roles. She encourages us to enjoy this journey we're on and to notice the details along the way, to listen to the raindrops as they splash on the pavement outside our window on a stormy day, to eat on the "good" dishes every day, to buy ourselves flowers just because, and to remember to "just say no" to create our own boundaries, but most of all remember, "Some days you just gotta dance!"

Wow! Sandy Gooselaw's book comes a such a refreshing bit of literature! In a time when we're inundated with 'Self Help' books, Ms. Gooselaw has given us permission to JUST BE OURSELVES...and not only that...but to REVEL in just how glorious we are and to realize the Glorious-ness in others! What a breath of fresh air. Using short, easy-to-read biographical stories, the author tells tales of friendship, sisterhood & faith that will inspire her readers to look deeply into their own relationships and strive to become 'real' with themselves and others. Rather than focusing on 'fixing' ourselves so we appear 'perfect' to others, the auther of this book points out that being a REAL women means opening up to our imperfections, embracing them & living a life that is full and fun! I read this book in one sitting & am now on my second round. I can't wait to share it with other REAL WOMEN in my life! :)
