Featured Profile (Michele Howe)
Hi Everybody, I came across this lovely woman a few weeks ago. She recently had a book published called, “Burdens Do a Body Good: Meeting Life’s Challenges with Strength (and Soul)” co-authored with Toledo, OH, orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Christopher A. Foetisch. The book came about after she went through four shoulder surgeries and Dr. Foetisch and Michele began writing on women’s inspirational and health topics.
I find Michele to be a true motivator of women and other who have walked and are walking through their own journeys of health issues. I promise you will be challenged and motivated by Michele and her book. Please check out her upcoming excerpt from her book and order her book at http://michelehowe.wordpress.com.
