Facing new challenges and finding methods to overcome them brings a sense of power and achievement, especially during uncertain times.

~ Alyson Jones and Jacqueline Fowler
When the world came crashing to a halt as a result of the historic 2020 pandemic, we were faced with a choice: to let ourselves be swept up in the waves of fear and overwhelm, or to shift our perspectives and evolve. And while this era is far from over, we have already seen incredible leaps of faith, extraordinary economic creativity, inspirational acts of generosity, and so much more.
In this special edition of the WOW book series, 16 women share their real-life stories about how they are moving through the uncertainty we are all facing.
