I was honored to write the Foreward for Toni's book. She has been a friend and mentor for several years after meeting in Africa. She has an insight unique to her. Toni can relate with so many people because she has experienced such a variety of circumstances in her life. Her book allows you to reflect on your own life to see changes you can make to live the life you want.
