Even More All In with a

Double Book Giveaway

Chris and Amanda Flanagan teamed up in August for a double giveaway of their books - "Living All In" and "Trust Yourself to Be All In". Chris' book is a beautiful combination of coaching, then strategic questions to ponder that help you move forward in whatever is holding you back from Living All In. Amanda's award-winning memoir invites you to break chains of generational family dysfunction by healing grief with compassion, forgiveness, and love, for self and others.
