The 4 Spheres of Intentional Living

This book offers best practices for synthesizing four “spheres” of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual health. Filled with examples and perspectives from thought leaders, The 4 Spheres is relevant for anyone committed to growth.


Three suburban mothers take their wine-filled, literary discussions on a beach trip. And vanish. The fathers remain behind, balancing their ambitions and failures with trying to help their bewildered children move forward. Ambiguity reigns as lines blur between friends and enemies.


Three Nashville-based novellas explore the perspectives, strengths, and flaws of creative people seeking meaning and fulfillment in a volatile world of responsibilities and distractions.
