About the Discover Your Splendor Book Series:
Discover Your Splendor is the exciting and innovative book series by Splendor Publishing that will change the way we think about ourselves, our life, our work, and our service to others.
The Discover Your Splendor book series consists of five main books, based on five major topics that are significant to us in our everyday lives and careers. Each book is an anthology, written by mentors, success experts, life-skills experts, and business consultants from around the world.
All of the books in the Discover Your Splendor book series will be masterfully compiled by Timothy Grant Carter and Margo DeGange, and professionally published by Splendor Publishing.
About the Books, the Readers, and the Authors:
Each book will be a collaborative effort of expert authors who have a message of encouragement, empowerment, enrichment, and hope to share with others. The readers are individuals and business people who desire to significantly improve their lives and tap into their full potential; they also want to have a positive impact on the lives of others. The reader is seeking new knowledge and skills to create their very best lives as they live, work, and serve in their communities.
The authors will show up as experts and mentors who will help readers gain specific life and business tools and skills to equip them in one or more of these five areas:
Life Purpose, Calling, and Mission

Service to Others (Lifework, Ministry, Giving, Volunteering, Good Works)
