"I had the great pleasure of meeting this author at a workshop recently and was so happy to speak to someone else that uses colors to enhance their life and the lives of others. I bought her book soon after and am so glad that I did -- it's a wonderful and useful read, with plenty of insight, positive affirmations, and space for journaling. Her warmth and happiness shine right through to the reader, and I know this will be something that I return to for years to come." Whitney R. Weldon, book review

"Colors of Joy: A Woman's Guide for Self-Discovery, Balance, and Bliss by Nancy Andres is filled with bright, purposeful exercises to take you on a journey to find yourself. The colorful chapter covers and their themes  set the stage as you ponder the questions, live the actions or simply write what's on your mind. Journaling is a powerful tool to help you explore your thoughts or actions and then reflect further upon them. Anyone can find a little something to relate to in this book for a joyful experience."
