There are times in our lives when we have this serendipitous moment that makes us stop and realize there is no such thing as coincidence. It was one of those special moments that lead me to Dr. Michelle Stevens.
I was on a business trip in New Mexico, ordering take-out when I noticed that the “Steve Harvey Show” was on the TV in the restaurant. What caught my attention was the topic. The show was based upon the book “Sacred Selfless: My Journey from Abuse and Madness to Surviving and Thriving” – I was immediately drawn to the screen and listened to the last five minutes of the show. I knew right then and there that I had to get the author of this incredible book, Dr. Michele Stevens to tell her story to YOU!
