MJ’S NEW BOOK

Are you going through your life on autopilot? Are you doing the day-to-day things that need to be done, but not doing what your heart is telling you to do? Finding the Wow is the uplifting story of a mom who realizes that she’s nor happy, just busy. When MJ and her friends— the chicks in charge— fight to redefine their second acts, they discover their strengths as they face their individual challenges— a failing marriage, long-forgotten dreams, and illness. MJ shares her own moments, harrowing and wonderful, great and small, on her journey to become a pilot.

To all my readers, it is not a shock to hear me say that the best experiences of my life have come to me when I left my comfort zone. When I was a “stay at home mom” and I decided to take flying lessons I knew there’d be some uneasiness but the joy...
