We’re nearly at the end of a year which has been filled with growth and friendship, enriched awareness of Hashem and the Tzaddik Emes, and blessings of all shapes and sizes. I’m grateful to all of you, students and friends, who’ve helped make this year one in which we’ve been able to share the life-changing teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov with thousands of women around the world.
Now for some exciting news. Early last summer someone approached me and said: There really needs to be a book of the daily mini-lessons you give on WhatsApp. Why not put one together?
With this person’s dedicated support, and Hashem’s Help, over the summer we got to work. I’m excited to say we’re nearly done with the first draft of the manuscript, tentatively titled: May You Have A Day: Short Inspirational Messages from Rebbe Nachman of Breslov. It contains inspirational wisdom and practical advice for how to live your life with more connection and joy.
Our dedicated team is hoping to publish this book in the coming winter (2020) and we need your help! If you would like to be part of the Breslov Woman team and host a book-launch party in your community or if you would like to make a book dedication, please contact me at crzbreslov @gmail.com or text me at 917-348-1573. And if you’re not already getting daily inspirational messages, get your invitation at this link: WhatsApp
May 5780 be year of closeness to Hashem and the Tzaddik Emes, a year of many blessings for you and your families. Kesiva V’Chasima Tova, May you be written and sealed for a good year.♥♥
