Excerpt from Spiritual Detox for Divas

Amy: What’s the most important lesson of this book?

Jennifer: Most important lesson? Being connected. Yes, being connected is so important. The acceptance of “what is” is so important. We are looking at people thinking and changing in new ways; shifts are happening everywhere. Everywhere! The whole planet is shifting, like even bigger than the planet. Arrgh, what’s the word.

Amy: Hmmm, is it a celestial shift, a shift from the cosmos?

Jennifer: Yes! We are seeing mass consciousness go in two directions. Just like in global politics or even the American Presidential election. There a huge shifts happening and we need to remember that despite the choice to move forward in one direction versus another, we are all deeply, deeply connected.

This first book by Lady Rhonda features lessons from her life alongside true stories from real women who have faced challenges. Scripture and recipes are sprinkled throughout the chapters to support fellowship and spiritual growth. The Potluck Blueprint is a perfect way to build community.

“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.”
