Hello and welcome.

Thank you so much for purchasing ‘Finding Joy Beyond Childlessness; Inspiring Stories to Guide You to a Fulfilling Life.’

Here you will find additional resources to help you to work your way through the book. There are pdf downloads of the Journaling Questions, meditations and video interviews with some of the storytellers.

I’m putting the finishing touches to this page just a couple of days before publication so things are a bit rushed! So what I’m saying is that I’ll be adding more as time goes on. As I listened to the videos again, I realised how much wisdom there is in them and I’ll be reflecting on that in the forthcoming weeks.

I’d love to know what you think, if you have any questions or observations as you work through please drop me a line at and, I’d be really grateful if you could leave a review on Amazon please.

Let’s also have some fun. As it says on the cover, the book is all about Finding Joy. If you follow me on Social media, you’ll see that I’ve been posting photos of the book in the different places I find my joy.

I’d love to see where you find joy, so how about taking a photo of the book in a place where you find joy, and either post it on social media and tag me, or email it to me and I’ll add it to my page? Wouldn’t it be fabulous to see all the different places where readers found their joy?  In due course I’ll add them to a webpage too. Thank you
