Clarkston for Life - Book Discussion

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Clarkston Independence District Library
Youth Activities Room

In the month of October, we’ll be digging into a book that inspires personal growth and promotes self-care, Daring Greatly by Drene Brown. So many of us struggle with the thought that we’re not good enough, which can make us strive for illusionary perfection. As Brene states, “If I look perfect, live perfect, and work perfect; I can avoid shame, blame and judgement.” The primary focus is on developing resiliency and courage skills that transforms the way we live, love, and parent. This book is thought provoking, insightful, and will leave you asking yourself how you can dare more greatly.
