Dear members;

Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy, Reviews

Book by Adam Grant and Sheryl Sandberg

I just watched this interview, and I was so moved that I believe if even a fraction of the emotion that I witnessed in that interview is conveyed in the pages of this book, this book will be one of the most poignant tomes I will have ever read. I think we need to add this to our reading list, and I hope you agree. Please let me know your thoughts, and I will be sure to relay mine, I think this could be interesting. Thank you for your time.

Yours as always,

D.M.Phillippe

    “I loved him because I knew him. Because I'd seen the man he truly was inside, and it never failed to amaze me. I loved him for his heart and his strength. For his endless compassion and his unbreakable spirit even in the face of everything he'd been through. I loved him because he was the person I wanted to be, and I was a better person just through the privilege of knowing him.” ― Julianna Scott, The Holders Dear members; When I in envisioned 'Our Loves' I knew I wanted a new twist on an old stand-by, but how to achieve that end, alluded me. Frankly I am the absolute last person anyone should ask love advise from, and I wanted the advise to be fresh, unique, wise and engaging. The person entrusted with this responsibility would need to be well versed in history, romance, sociology, psychology, human nature, and a great deal of patience, with an even larger dose of magic and whimsy and lets not forget the most important ingredient of all 'Plays well with others'. Fortunately, just like 'Mary Poppins' (only this time on a magical wave), you dear members have been rescued from (what could only be categorized as a level 1 disaster) Me. Our 'Mama Dragon Savior' and 'Romance Heroine', is none other than our 'Forum' moderator, and Romance Novelist Sierra Glenn. Please join me in wishing her luck in this endeavor, she has my full faith and confidence and I'm sure you'll find her to be a great source of warmth and wisdom.
