Courageous. Unflinching. Surprising. After decades of feeling as if she had to compromise her essential nature to please other people, Barbara Moore not only learned to speak up for herself, she learned to tell her story in such a way that it encourages all of us to notice where we are not being true to ourselves. Full of grit and grace, Submissive No More is an inspiration.

Submissive No More is a courageous story of one woman’s journey from relationship and personal pain to setting healthy boundaries and living her life joyfully; one step at a time. Culturally women are still encouraged to be pleasers, reading Barbara’s story of recognizing and replacing her people pleasing with authentic living is truly inspiring!
This book should be an inspiration to women who have psychologically abused by their spouses. It is a story of courage. Pauline S
