Enter to Win 3 Free Coaching Sessions!

How Will You Be Smaller This Christmas?

Burning with envy, I stared at that long dark hair as it fell over the plastic baby in the manger. It isn’t fair, I thought. I would make a great Mary. But there I was, once again clad in a white gown and sporting a battered pair of wings and a rickety halo made of […]
