THE SECRET TO HELPING MORE ANIMALS
What would it take to give all the animals the kind of lives that they deserve? How do we work together to attain this vision? The answer to both of these questions can be found within the hearts of the animal advocates and the beloved furry friends they help. The secret is joy. Read on and uncover the infinite power of joy that is already present on your life-saving and life-enhancing journey of giving to the animals.
A life of giving to animals offers amazing gifts of love, purpose, and contentment. But instead of experiencing joy and fulfillment, animal advocates often find themselves overwhelmed, sad, and depleted.
Clinical psychologist and lifelong animal lover Dr. Linda Harper offers insight into the personality of the animal advocate and provides strategies to help face the challenges and find the gifts of their life-saving and life-enhancing journey. When we balance the desires and needs of each unique giving heart, we are at our best and joy flows freely and abundantly. Joy is the self-perpetuating, contagious, and powerful energy that is needed to bring us together to create a better world.
With a foreword and contributions by animal advocate Faith Maloney, Dr. Harper’s newest book aims to help individuals realize the gifts of their purposeful journey of helping animals, replenish their giving hearts, and become their best as they work toward creating a kinder world not only for animals, but for all living beings.
