June Book Of The Month

This month’s Books To Live By choice highlights our June theme — Transitions: How to Navigate them and Reignite your Spark!

Women on Fire’s June 2013 choice

Take 2: Your Guide to Creating Happy Endings and New Beginnings (Amazon link) by Leeza Gibbons is our selection.

Leeza is a popular television personality and advocate for caregivers. She is a wife, mother of three, businesswoman and an absolute Woman on Fire!

She’s best known as a longstanding host of TV’s Entertainment Tonight. Since then, she’s enjoyed many other successful media endeavors, including a recent Daytime Emmy nomination as “outstanding host of a lifestyle program” for her PBS show My Generation.

Leeza also watched her grandmother and mother succumb to the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease.

The experience led her to create the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation, and its flagship programs Leeza’s Place and Leeza’s Care Connection. These organizations provide strategies and free services to family caregivers.

Leeza is an extraordinary woman with a huge heart. In Take 2 she reveals the strategies that helped her through the ups and downs of her life so you have a road map to follow.

An earlier book of hers —  Take Your Oxygen First: Protecting Your Health and Happiness While Caring For a Loved One with Memory Loss is worth mentioning as well.

I urge you to consider ordering copies of both books– or two of each to share with a loved one — and weave her powerful strategies into the transitions of your own life.

I hope you find Leeza’s Take 2 as helpful as I have. Let me know what you think!
