discovers a self-help bookâ€”Be the Heroine, Find Your

Re: Girl Before A Mirror
I found your posting to be quite interesting. The sad thing
is, that a lot of people can go through their lifetimes, not
being comfortable in their own skin. I'm slowly coming into

Congratulations on your latest book!!
