The Enchanted Self           — by Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein

Exciting News


Happy New Year to all of my readers!   I hope everyone had pleasant holidays and that you are feeling refreshed and determined to make the most out of the coming year. I certainly am determined!

I have exciting news. The latest Enchanted Self book, “THE TRUTH, My Secret Diary, I'm Ten, I'm Smart and I Know Everything!” is about to go to press next week. I am so excited about publishing this book.

Did you ever read The Little Prince? That book brought the truth to the reader in many ways. So does this book and you will collapse in giggles and positive memories at the same time you are saying to yourself, "Yes, that is the truth!  I have to remember what the girl is saying." 

I can't wait to share this book with you. We will have so much fun. I want you to be involved in the fun all the way. I'm sure the girl will awaken you to many lost parts of yourself and your history that are worth treasuring.

And treasure them we will, by sharing our memories and the laughs and exploits that go with growing up. And we will share a lot more as we dialogue about our own kids and how to be a better parent, aunt, grandmother, or neighbor.  

Get ready to join me! I plan to start a blog about the book shortly, and we will have teleclasses and lots going on.  I'll keep you posted on the details.

This is the fifth book I'm publishing, including my mother's book, Feel Good Stories. Wow! And it all started from my girl scout diaries when I was nine.

See, you just don't know what talents are inside of ourselves.
