Today I have award-winning authoress, Sarah Woodard, with me. She was born in a small town in Massachusetts and growing up, she was always the different one, the one off doing her own thing. She felt compelled to do something big with her life from an early age.
Eventually, she discovered her purpose to create a world in which all beings are respected and honored. Sara encourages connection to self, soul spirit, and the environment through her words. Her writing gives a voice to those that don’t have one – nature, plants, animals, minorities, etc.
