Lost and Found Project

The Lost and Found Project

Lost and Found: Discovering Strength in Love and Faith is a life coaching book in which I share my story of being lost and what I found to overcome adversities in my life. It is a story that inspires, motivates, and guides readers to their own sources of inner strength. Using coaching questions, the book serves as a springboard to create greater self-awareness and strategies for readers to not only survive, but to thrive, through their life challenges.

With over 500 copies of the book distributed, we are now ready to take this project to the next level which is the purpose of this funding campaign.

Thus far, Lost and Found principles and strategies have been used as a basis for workshops, retreats, and a women's book group. Positive feedback from these programs indicates their success and leads us to expand our efforts to effectively reach a larger audience who wish to deepen their inner strength and resilience. 

4 components of the Lost and Found Project

1)   Done! 
Create, design, and print a Lost and Found Companion Journal which will provide a place for readers to record their thoughts and insights as they respond to the reflection questions in Lost and Found, the book. 

2) Done! 
Convert and publish Lost and Found as a Kindle and as an Audio book for readers who prefer an electronic format.

3)  Create and distribute a Lost and Found Retreat Kit which will provide organizations with the information they need to host a 1 or 2 day retreat collaboratively with an approved Lost and Found presenter.

4) Develop a Lost and Found Online Community which will provide support for those who are using this material to encourage continued sharing of wisdom, encouragement, and strength.
