Finding Life In Between is the powerful story of one woman, struggling in survival mode, who took to heart that when nothing was certain, anything was possible. After finding herself unemployed and emotionally and physically healing from some of life's major interruptions, Candy decided to get in her car and drive south to somewhere, anywhere. Her goal was to step away from her day-to-day life, study human connection, and share her findings about the stories of others. The Universe, however, had other plans. The journey of looking outward actually became a long, reflective voyage inward, resulting in stories and lessons born out of the beautiful imperfections of real life. The chapters are a sharp, vulnerable display of the raw realities of modern womanhood, and the grace and compassion that we all need to move from fear to freedom, from survival into thriving. The stories within these pages offer the opportunity for all of us to go on our own journeys of vulnerability and self-discovery. As you dive into the intimate and powerful "in between" moments within the chapters, you may find yourself laying claim to your own authentic truths about self-love and worthiness. This book is an invitation for you to find beauty in your own gloriously imperfect journey, to open your arms and come home to yourself. "We are all beautifully created to live our own authentic lives . . . Be courageous. Love yourself enough to chase the life you’re dreaming of."
