The Sexual Healing Journey


If you have the money, I also strongly encourage you to buy a copy of one of these books and donate it to a local library or women's organization. (You may be well advised to call first to make sure that you donate a book which they do not already have a copy of.)

Many women can not afford to buy books and live in areas where these types of books are not readily available in their local library. We can stop the silence by giving these words to those who have no voice of their own!
