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''.
