8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After years of focusing on the needs of others as a wife and mother, Anderson devoted a year to rediscovering herself and reinvigorating her dreams. The questions she asked herself and the insights she gained became the core of the popular weekend workshops she developed to help others like her. This book brings Anderson's techniques to women everywhere, providing a step-by-step path readers can follow at their own pace. Drawing on her own life and the experiences of the women she meets at her workshops, Anderson shows women how to move beyond the roles they play in relationship to others and reclaim their individuality. She illuminates the rewards of nurturing long-neglected talents, revitalizing plans sacrificed to the demands of family life, and redefining oneself by embracing new possibilities.--From publisher description

Christmas on the prairie by Joan Anderson( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Curtis family has recently moved to Prairietown from a thriving village in New York State. The four Curtis children, especially Thomas, are determined that Christmas will be just as wonderful as it was back East. But how can it be? So many ingredients of the family's traditional Christmas customs are missing on the frontier. For many pioneers in 1836, Christmas was just another workday, not a joyful holiday. But new settlers like the Curtis family enlivened many pioneer town and changed its ways of celebrating. In a sense, what we know today as the American Christmas first took root way out on the prairie. In their striking companion to The First Thanksgiving Feast, Joan Anderson and George Ancona recreate a favorite time in our history--the settling of the western frontier. This handsome book was photographed at the living history museum called Conner Prairie Pioneer Settlement near Noblesville, Indiana -- Book jacket
