"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage."
This season, our Feature Articles, dedicated to personal and spiritual growth, are exploring the topic of "Courage."
Our contributing authors have provided us with a wonderful and varied collection of insight on this subject, sharing personal stories of courage and bravery and offering thoughtful guidance and advice to help empower us to create a fuller, richer life, through our own
everyday acts of personal bravery.
We dedicate our Courage Issue of SoulfulLiving.com in memory of our friend, author Katherine Martin, who died earlier this year of cancer. Katherine was a true woman of courage. Her life mission was to awaken
the courage in each of us and to inspire people to make a difference. Through her sold-out theater performances, public appearances, and books, including "Women of Courage" and "People Who Dare," she provoked a new conversation about courage, busting myths, getting real, and empowering people to live their lives boldly and authentically.
