“Beyond MS: Your Best Life” with Author Rev. Rosalie Richards

If you have MS you may think that the good life is over—but it doesn’t have to be that way! Beyond MS— Your Best Life explains 7 simple choices you may not have ever thought about. Learn how to make seven conscious decisions— decisions that turn into a simple plan for reaching your best life without letting MS take over. The author, Rosalie Richards, has MS, has faced these challenges, and has found these strategies to work. The strategies are presented in a clear, no-nonsense and humorous way—step-by-step so that they can immediately be put into action. Also included are stories of 21 people living with MS, each with a message. Rosalie is an Episcopal priest with a Ph.D. from the University of Texas School of Public Health and an M.S.W. from Columbia University, and those disciplines inform this work. She enjoys yoga, reading and exploring spirituality. She lives in the Great North Woods of northern New Hampshire with her wonderful and creative daughter who has a blog on nutritious living and recipes. Seven years after Rosalie was diagnosed with the possibility of MS, she traveled to Egypt and rode a camel along the rocky outcrops of Mount Sinai. After the diagnosis was confirmed, Rosalie’s bucket list achievements have included learning to kayak and visiting the Incan ruins at Ingapirca, Ecuador. Currently Rosalie and her daughter are training for the Color Run.

Rosalie will be at Geer Village to discuss and sign copies of this memoir on Saturday, July 26th at 1:00pm in the Hollenbeck Room.
