Donna Hartley

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — If you're overwhelmed, it is your time to become healthy. Survive and thrive.

Fire Up Your Healing! will help you heal your body, soul. You will also learn "The Perfect Plan," which is a 10-step program for health and healing.

Women Empowering Women is pleased to have Donna Hartley return to speak at For Goodness Sake on Monday, Aug. 19, 10 a.m.-noon.

Rejoin Donna as her incredible true-life journey continues. Once again, life-changing events alter her path. She must heal with her mother in a nursing home, her father in a courtroom probate battle, as well as mend her relationship with her brother.

She recalls the words of George, her mentor, who adamantly advised her someday she would have to release her anger and heal with her mother, father, and brother.

Can she forgive the alcoholism, the violence, and the indifference?
