As we hurtle through our day, crashing off of one obstacle after another, we rarely find the time even to dream about a life filled with peace and spiritual awareness. And when we do pause—usually from exhaustion—to wonder about those who seem to float along, feeling some sort of “other” connection, how many of us question the ability to do that and live in the real world? Tammy Plunkett puts this age-old dilemma in crystal-clear perspective when she writes: “Somebody has to stop meditating long enough to cook dinner.” We don’t have to move to Tibet and live in a cave to find peace. The choices we make in our everyday lives serve as the bridge between our basic reactive state and our more aware higher selves. Being Human shows how we can use these choices to transform our own lives as well as the world we live in. Have you ever had the feeling that something is missing? That there must be more to this experience called life? Then Being Human was written for you.


With The Faces Behind the Pages That Inspire, Lori Rekowski continues the journey that she began in her powerful first book, A Victim No More. This time, however, she brings along some friends. Following her personal journey to wholeness and self-love, Rekowski discovered Facebook and became curious about the people who selflessly post inspiration and support for total strangers, day after day. She was so impressed by this generosity that she embarked upon a mission to find the people behind the Fan Pages. The Faces Behind the Pages That Inspire is your backstage pass as she pulls back the curtain to reveal to you the incredible journey each author has taken.

Rekowski says, “For years, I’ve done my best to listen, pray, meditate and ask for guidance that would allow me to do work that would help me to heal others in a way that is in the highest good for the concern of all others. In the process of practicing this, I am always blessed. This project has been no exception.” If you’ve ever wondered about the people behind the images and messages that touch and inspire us every day, this book is for you. You will laugh. You will cry. Your hearts will break when you read about what they have endured and your spirits will soar as you walk with them on their journey of healing.

In one of the chapters in The Faces Behind the Pages That Inspire, Tammy Plunkett and Charlene Winchester tell the story about how they used Facebook to build a community of followers to The Bridge Post fan page. The members of this community not only came to love the fan page quotes and posters but also developed real give and take friendships.
