I have both of these books to share with my sons, and in classes I teach in my holistic health education series and workshops. I want my sons to grow up recognizing the divine in women, in everyone. So far, at 12 and 15, I think they deeply understand! I am grateful to Trista for these books as it is another voice speaking to my sons, not just Mom. Blessing Trista for the “work” you do in this world!
