Roxanne's favorite books are:
''A Return to Love'' by Marianne Williamson
''Conversations With God'' by Neale Donald Walsch
Anne's favorite statement from book one of ''Conversations with God'': ''Choosing to be God-like does not mean you choose to be a martyr. And it certainly does not mean you choose to be a victim... Be willing to assert, acknowledge, and declare exactly how you feel about a thing. Say your truth - kindly, but fully and completely. Live your truth, gently, but totally and consistently. Change your truth easily and quickly when your experience brings you new clarity''.
