Edging into forty-something, Karen and Pam found themselves in a state of stuck. They had checked off many of their major life goals—career, husband, children, friends—but they’d lost momentum. After griping over drinks one night, they came up with a plan to face their fears, rediscover their interests, try new things, and renew their relationships. They challenged themselves to try one new thing every week for a year—from test-driving a Maserati to target practice at a shooting range to ballroom dance lessons—and to blog about their journeys. They quickly realized it was harder than they ever imagined but came through it with a sense of clarity and purpose that has them itching to share the possibilities with the millions of middle-aged women out there who feel the same way about one or many areas of their lives. Getting "unstuck" doesn’t have to mean running a marathon, traveling the world, or ending a relationship with your partner. Through their experiences and a good dose of no-nonsense advice, Karen and Pam show readers how achieving small goals can give you a renewed sense of accomplishment and how you can keep growing, learning, and moving forward at any age. Interspersed with personal stories is expert advice from doctors, psychiatrists, artists, and even a poker diva (who also happens to be a Fortune 500 executive).

Do you call yourself a writer, yet feel you’re a fraud because you’ve never finished anything, let alone achieved publication? Is there a nagging voice inside your head telling you to give up because you’ll never nail this ‘writing thing?’ I was once you. Within 52 Stories in 52 Weeks, you will find a culmination of a 52-week journey I commenced on July 31st, 2017. The basis for this experiment was at the suggestion of Ray Bradbury who recommended that all beginning and intermediate writers follow this ‘writer’s hygiene’ program, because there’s just no way you can write 52 bad stories in a row. Here, I present all 52 stories along with a journal of the process behind each one. Also included are general lessons I've learned that I hope will turn struggling writers into prolific writers.
Suffering the loss of her father and grandmother, and dealing with the ending of a relationship left the author tired, bereft, disappointed, emotionally drained, and feeling like God had forgotten her. She wondered what she could do to heal from this holy triumvirate of personal pain. She decided that spirituality would be the context from which she would make her journey back to herself. If she felt like God had forgotten her, then she would look for him everywhere and in the eyes of everyone she met. She made a commitment to visit a different place of worship every week for a year, whether that place of worship reflected her religious tradition or not. In total, she visited sixty-one churches, temples, mosques, synagogues, and gathering places in the United States, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Nigeria and South Africa. My 52 Weeks of Worship is the story of one woman’s courageous journey. Read and see—will her journey lead her to deep, dark places in her soul or help her find peace and acceptance?
