Finding Life In Between, A Journal For Me...To You
Book Description
With a need to simply get away from it all and refresh her perspective, Candy decided to combine her passions of travel and writing and connecting with people into a book – a journal of the stories that connect us all.

One August afternoon, Candy got in her car and drove south from Wisconsin to nowhere in particular. She planned to stop at points of interest, meet people, interview them, and write their stories along the way. The Universe, however, had other plans. What happened instead was a long journey inward, resulting in this memoir of reflections and stories about the beautiful imperfections of life.

The stories within these pages offer the opportunity for all of us to go on our own journeys of vulnerability and self-discovery. As you dive into the intimate and powerful “in between” moments within the chapters, you may find yourself laying claim to your own authentic truths about self-love and worthiness. This book is an invitation for you to find beauty in your own imperfect journey, to open your arms, and come home to yourself.
