“I never dreamed I’d see an African American woman as First Lady during my lifetime. She has revolutionized our thinking about what’s really key to living, not just going through the motions and being at our best in every way.
“For certain, she doesn’t just have a full plate, she’s balancing a platter: she’s married to the most powerful man in the world, is a great mom, a beloved daughter, and a fab “Sis,” all of which present a full set of responsibilities and cares of the heart.
“Yet by choice she’s also focused on the wellness of the nation’s children and the well-being of military families. There’s not one of us who isn’t moved by watching her step to purpose, day in and day out.”
The book also contains advice on diet and exercise covering each stage of a woman’s life from age 20 to 50. There are also sage words on ways to nourish one’s spiritual and emotional well being.
