Your Key to Unlocking a More Fulfilling Life

Every woman lives by a Code, whether she realizes it or not. The Code is as old as time. It has been practiced for thousands of years, quietly, among the sisterhood of women. This Code is her road map to living, a guidepost residing deep within her spirit. It governs her romantic relationships, friendships, family ties, career choices, and personal sense of well-being and value. And when her Code is out of balance, her life is out of balance.

Drawing from her personal faith and from her experience in the business world, Sophia Nelson explores 20 keys to unlocking the life you want, such as:

· Knowing your innate value and worth
· Teaching people how to treat you
· Making peace with your past
· Learning to lead from within
· Lifting other women as you climb

The Woman Code helps women to honor themselves while navigating the demands of work, home, family, and friendship. It not only calls on women to practice purpose in their lives, it shows them how to do it with grace.

"Sophia Nelson is a powerful and poignant voice for women of our time. By challenging us to unlock our inner greatness or Code, she is calling women to live higher, to live on purpose, and to succeed first from a deep place within."--Sunny Hostin, CNN legal analyst, attorney, and journalist

"We all encounter chapters in our lives that test us to our core. Sophia has put together a remarkable Code for living life that will enable modern women to face those tests and not just survive them but thrive despite them."--Sherri Shepherd, cohost of ABC's The View

Women are powerful yet peaceful. We are strong yet sensitive. We are listeners yet we lead. We are resilient yet we remember. We are sacred yet sensual. We are wives and we are mothers. We are single and we are caretakers. We are spiritual and we are sisters.

There is something about women that makes us uniquely connected and, beyond that, simply powerful! In The Woman Code, author, journalist, and TV personality Sophia Nelson shows women that everything we need to lead the lives we want is already inside us. Nelson helps women create a road map of timeless values coupled with modern-day approaches to help us face the challenges of our time.

It is time for women to return to a universal Code of personal and collective conduct, a
Code that will allow us to fulfill all we are born to be.

"'Women live by a variety of unwritten codes,' argues former White House reporter, attorney, and author Nelson (Black Woman Redefined). 'Your life Code is formed from the time You are a small girl. . . . Your Code either propels you to greatness or keeps you stuck in the challenges and obstacles of your life,' she writes. Nelson explains how women can recognize the codes they operate by and use them to reshape aspects of their lives, using what she calls the 'Personal Codes,' the 'Emotional Codes,' the 'Spiritual Codes,' and the 'Professional Codes.' Within each section, she discusses topics that plague many women. For instance, within the Personal Codes, she addresses how to "'Make Peace with Your Past' and 'Guard Your Heart.' In explaining each of these codes, she gives real-life examples and advice, provides takeaways, and identifies key words. Nelson sprinkles Scripture passages throughout the book, but sparingly and only to lend biblical credence to her analysis. Unlike many of today's self-help authors. Nelson doesn't indulge in an us-against-them mentality. Rather, she says that women should be strong. assured, and responsible for their own actions and choices. This refreshing approach is both empowering and enlightening and should appeal to women of all ages."--Publishers Weekly

Publishers Weekly

"The Woman Code exposes the personal, emotional, spiritual, professional, and social areas where the distortions lie, and shares principles for making genuine life transformation. Quotes from authors, actors, leaders, and dispersers of wisdom from all areas of life are road signs while Nelson's words appear like rest stops welcoming the reader to bring forth her true self, 'To be a woman is power in motion.'

"The Codes challenge antiquated ideas on womanhood, including attitudes that women have toward one another. 'Gossip' occupies an entire chapter--a fatal hidden saboteur of women's power.

"Refreshingly, Nelson dares to correct long-time practiced misconceptions of what power means for a woman, 'We [women] ascend because we are capable, qualified, and gifted, not because we have to be like men.' Following rectification the book carries the reader through landscapes of courage and scenes of women lifting up each other."
