This is the first of an edited two hour conversation I had with my sister, Celeste Sage-Tate. When she and I get started, we talk about one story that leads to another, and another linking themes and what we’ve learned from them.

I have had the love of reading since 7th grade. I would spend hours after school just reading and seeing myself in the stories I read. I read many different genres. I do not limit myself. As a Life Coach I have read many books from Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, and Marianne Williamson.
