Jingle All The Way By DEBBIE MACOMBER

Everly always had big dreams. Now a top real-estate executive, Everly finds her work is her life, leaving no space for anything (or anyone) else. Sensing her stress, Everly’s boss insists she take December off. At first, a month away seems crazy for her to even think about. 

Part of this book makes me remember the same advice I have been given by my boss and colleagues. 

 

My Own Words By RUTH BADER GINSBURG 

Justice Ginsburg discusses gender equality, the workings of the Supreme Court, being Jewish, law and lawyers in opera, and the value of looking beyond US shores when interpreting the US Constitution. Throughout her life Justice Ginsburg has been (and continues to be) a prolific writer and public speaker. 

This book is a must read!  Recommended by one of our great volunteers. 

 

Married to the Foreign Service By JEWELL FENZI, CARL L. NELSON

This is an oral history of American diplomatic spouses. It offers a compelling account of spirited and courageous women caught up in the dramatic events of this century’s global politics. Spouses have made significant contributions to foreign relations. 

 

Meditation on Self-Love by LAURASIA MATTINGLY

This meditation is pleasant and easy to use so anyone can find a few minutes to stop and reflect every day. 

I recommend it as it has a short, special meditation for each day of the year that you may find enjoyable, especially with this time of craziness we are all going through.
