RE: The Wisdom in Rethinking Your Life©
RE was written to empower women—regardless of their past or current circumstances. It is a #1 Amazon Bestselling self-improvement book because it addresses the struggles many of us have experienced. The women in the book overcame their circumstances to courageously tell their stories. The thread that runs through every story is the heart in forgiveness. In order to begin to heal, each woman had to let go and make a choice to forgive, whether it was a parent, primary relationship, friend, or herself. The authors provide various exercises in RE from their live course called Partner in Excellence (PIE), to open up your mind, renew your spirit, and reclaim a thriving life you want and deserve to have.
As Oprah has said, “Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different.”
By using RE as your GPS (guide) you will be inspired to
- Recommit to finding your passion and purpose in life
- Recognize the barriers that hold you back
- Re-invent your career and finances
- Rebuild and re-ignite relationships
- Re-energize and revitalize your health
- Redefine your hopes and aspirations

“The Wisdom in RE…Rethinking your Life is an inspirational book to help any woman redefine herself and her relationships in a healthy way.”
“Wisdom in RE demonstrates the significant impact of social-emotional intelligence in understanding our motives and connecting with others. Through the exercises, thought-provoking material, and courageous testimonies the authors have produced a doorway to change and renewal.”
“Many years ago I met Gloria Manchester through the seminar company where I started as a basic instructor for personal-growth courses. She was a student and one of the most active enrollers in the business. When she and Rose Gibbons started their own seminar enterprise, Leadership Education Action Programs, they invited me to help them develop and facilitate an advanced personal- development curriculum. I had previously participated in working with Dr. John Gray in facilitating their nonprofit STARR SuperCamp for abused teen boys and girls. It was an incredible and powerful experience! These professional women are dedicated to providing quality experiential courses for women and teens, and I wholeheartedly support their work. Wisdom in RE is an expansion of their commitment to this worthy calling.”
“I am honored to have been the first to read through Wisdom in RE, especially since it is designed for women. From a man’s viewpoint– I think the book is amazing! Any woman who reads this book and takes action will enjoy a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. The authors have provided the reader with the basic tools to re-story their lives and exercises to map out a strategy for success. As stated in the book, we can’t rewrite our past but we can change our response to it. I too believe in seizing each moment – living with passion and abundance. I have been fortunate to have consulted with other authors and experts over the years on sound mind-body philosophy. For me, the book reinforced everything my wife and I have been doing to create more balance in our lives. That can be an enormous challenge with four children. I hope this book is incredibly successful.”
“I first participated in the authors’ course called PIE in 2011. It was one of the best choices I have ever made for my personal life and professional career. I use the tools that I learned in PIE every day. As a result, I have taken some giant leaps, achieved big goals, and healed personal relationships. I wish I had been fortunate enough to do STARR when I was a teenager. Wisdom in RE is an extension of the work the authors have been doing for several years through their personal-growth and leadership course for women, and the STARR for Teens. The book is a very empowering process you can personally do for yourself from home. I have read through the manuscript and found, for me, it reinforced the principles and practices from the course work. Wisdom in RE will transform the lives of many women, teens, and their families.”
