From the Inside Flap
Women are powerful yet peaceful. We are strong yet sensitive. We are listeners yet we lead. We are resilient yet we remember. We are sacred yet sensual. We are wives and we are mothers. We are single and we are caretakers. We are spiritual and we are sisters.

There is something about women that makes us uniquely connected and, beyond that, simply powerful! In The Woman Code, author, journalist, and TV personality Sophia Nelson shows women that everything we need to lead the lives we want is already inside us. Nelson helps women create a road map of timeless values coupled with modern-day approaches to help us face the challenges of our time.

It is time for women to return to a universal Code of personal and collective conduct, a Code that will allow us to fulfill all we are born to be.

Your Key to Unlocking a More Fulfilling Life

Every woman lives by a Code, whether she realizes it or not. The Code is as old as time. It has been practiced for thousands of years, quietly, among the sisterhood of women. This Code is her road map to living, a guidepost residing deep within her spirit. It governs her romantic relationships, friendships, family ties, career choices, and personal sense of well-being and value. And when her Code is out of balance, her life is out of balance.

Drawing from her personal faith and from her experience in the business world, Sophia Nelson explores 20 keys to unlocking the life you want, such as:

· Knowing your innate value and worth
· Teaching people how to treat you
· Making peace with your past
· Learning to lead from within
· Lifting other women as you climb

The Woman Code helps women to honor themselves while navigating the demands of work, home, family, and friendship. It not only calls on women to practice purpose in their lives, it shows them how to do it with grace.

THE WOMAN’S CODE is a book for all women—that will reach you at the core and help you how to get past the personal roads you’ve already traveled and to navigate the current and future ones. The author shares she was going through a hard time as she sat down to write this book, but never-the-less, she has some really thought-provoking ideas in it. Such as: “We all endure different trials, tribulations and triumphs. But in the end we all hope to geet through them intact. Whole. Better than before.” Or, “I accepted what was lost. I made peace with what is now past. And I have learned to be grateful for what and who I still have left.”
A powerful message for today’s woman, to find peace and happiness from the inside-out. Recommended. Available in Kindle, hardback, or MP3-CD.
