Finding Your Soul Voice: Writing From Within

Your soul is telling you something important. Are you listening? Do you sense something inside you that wants to have a say? Do you mostly ignore it? If so, you’re not alone. Many of us live the lives that our parents or society expect of us, not heeding the voice inside that might point us in a completely different direction. But beyond the chaos of demanding careers and family responsibilities and the din of texts and email and social media, there is a small, quiet, and true voice. Your soul voice.
