"What she goes through is this growing, understanding that life is right now. No matter what mistakes, or losses, or pain we've experienced in the past - that there's still beauty in this particular moment and there's still hope and potential in every moment. So that instead of giving up on life, maybe the moment we think we want to give up is really the beginning of it all to see life and feel it and experience it." - Debra Landwehr Engle
Today you’re going to meet Debra Landwehr Engle. She is the author of several non-fiction titles including Grace from the Garden and the Only Little Prayer You Need, featuring a foreword by the Dalai Lama - and now she’s adding a fiction book to the list.
Debra is co-founder of Tending Your Inner Garden. Debra and her work have been featured in Oprah Magazine and TIME Magazine. She also teaches A Course in Miracles.
I really enjoyed talking to Deb about how her newest book, her debut novel, Twenty. We talked about the parallels between her non-fiction books. We also chatted about about how her main character was able to start doing some hard things - like letting go of guilt and being mindful. Plus, you'll walk away with tips on how you can bring those same concepts into your own life. Deb has some really insightful words about losing a child, how our burdens of guilt grow in the dark and how living intentionally can make an impact in our lives.
