Walking in a Crowd of Angels is a romp, it’s a walk through the garden with a good friend, it’s a giggle, and it’s reality. This collection of short stories, quotes, and inspirational thoughts is a treasure. It’s a perfect gift — for yourself, for a good friend, for a child graduating from college, for someone going through death, divorce, separation, loss, and transition. Everyone you know can use the wisdom found in this book.

This program is based on the Resilience Doughnut model of building resilience

“Beth’s book is very practical, useful and contains vital information. Written in separate topics allows parents to choose what best fits their focus at the time. Parenting 5 children, one of whom had special needs requiring 24 hour medical care, never permitted me time to read anything, but I could grab a glance of advice now and then. This book would have been helpful. It was necessary that our four older children be resilient in order to thrive in our stressful situation for the years that it lasted.” – Ellen Schwenk, MEd
