Whose Shoes Celebrates 5 Years!

Julian B. Kiganda and Christine K. St. Vil are two sisters known for being Bold & Fearless Moms ‘N Charge. After conquering their own personal and professional struggles to finally walk in their purpose, they’re giving you their most powerful insights to move you along your own path to uncovering your God-given purpose. In Whose Shoes Are You Wearing?, these no-nonsense siblings take you through key steps to help you create the unprecedented transformation you want to see in your own life. They draw upon their own life-changing experiences—from ending unhealthy relationships to surviving unimaginable trauma—which are closely intertwined with their East African upbringing. With practical action steps included at the end of each chapter, Whose Shoes shows you how to walk boldly and fearlessly in your own shoes regardless of the shoes you’ve been wearing.

Enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres and come ready to have fun, mingle, and maybe even bust a dance move or two. We might just throw in a surprise, but you'll have to be there to receive it. 

Every guest will receive a special gift and an opportunity to purchase the BRAND NEW audibook version of our life-changing book Whose Shoes Are You Wearing?
