One of the greatest books to influence my life was The Dark Side of the Light Chasers by Debbie Ford.
Not only is the book one of my top ten picks for life changing reads, but the author later became a dear friend of mine.
I’m sad to say she passed away last night.
I am shaken by the loss, as Debbie was a mentor who I loved. She endorsed me and my books, believed in me, and was always a phone call away.
I loved her.
While Debbie is gone, her message is alive and well through her books.
One of her final wishes was to get more people to read her work, especially the book that opened my eyes so many years ago.
If you haven’t read it, or if you’d like to get copies to give as gifts, please go to — http://shar.es/YQeQB
I am posting this at the request of Debbie, and as a way to support her family (as they get the royalties from sales).
Please live your life with passion, grace and love, just as Debbie Ford did.
PS — A friend recently told me we don’t need to live forever – just long enough to complete our life mission. Debbie completed hers, knew it, and said so. I celebrate her mission successfully accomplished and I’ll always miss her, too.
