Our next Women’s Book Discussion Group will begin on May 14, from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Conference Room. We will read “I’ve Been Thinking” by Maria Shriver.

“I’ve Been Thinking” is available on Amazon:

As a prominent woman juggling many roles, Maria Shriver knows just how surprising, unpredictable and stressful everyday life can be.

In this moving and powerful book, she shares inspiring quotes, prayers, and reflections designed to get readers thinking, get them feeling, get them laughing, and help them in their journey to what she calls The Open Field — a place of acceptance, purpose and passion — a place of joy.

“I’ve Been Thinking . . .”  is ideal for anyone at any point in her life. Whether you feel like you’ve got it all together or like it’s all falling apart–whether you’re taking stock of your life or simply looking to recharge, this is the book you will turn to again and again. Like talking with a close friend, it’s the perfect companion — an exceptional gift for someone looking to move forward in life with hope and grace.
