Soul Trekking Through the Dark Night
[Kindle Edition]:
  A great read. The author has many life's challenges and still comes out on the other side with a positive attitude and strategies for moving forward. She includes resources for those who are stuck in depression or mired in what most would consider a hopeless situation. I found it totally inspiring.

A review by —Carol Anna, writer and editor:

Barbara J. Butler’s Soul Trekking Through the Dark Night is a starkly honest account of immense sorrow— incredible courage and new beginnings.

Powerfully emotional, Barbara’s soul-searching journey through her life’s darkest hours—which included family violence and a devastating brain injury—is also deeply spiritual. Hers is an amazing tale of perseverance, survival, acceptance, and reinvention. As she learned to let go of her old self, she discovered a new Barbara born of recovery, gratefulness, and beauty. On the wings of her spiritual nature, she has found a new life of jubilant independence.
Now a successful author, speaker, and minister, Barbara dedicates herself to guiding others through their own times of profound change—whether brought on by hardship or happiness. Soul Trekking Through the Dark Night is an expression of her love, as she wraps clear, practical advice around her own story. Each chapter ends with strategies used plus lessons learned that are brief, insightful acknowledgements of the silver linings that can be so difficult to recognize within the depths of change.
For those who are moving toward a new life, Barbara’s is a trek worth taking.

  Strategies for Handling Change Workbook
A review by Patty Zeitlin Pacific Northwest author:

"1,000 kudos" to you for accomplishing such a well organized, attractive and helpful book, especially for those who can't get organized (which is most of us:)  I think the quotes really offer food for thought and for getting up and doing something about what you want to do, and they also offer encouragement for what might seem like some daunting tasks. You've offered plenty of ideas for alternative approaches, a practical, efficient way to keep track of what you've accomplished (or not) and lots of organizational and reading resources. .Well done!
