A note from Sandi ...
I believe that we have everything we need inside us and as the Elders say, once we learn to trust our instincts, nothing can stop us. We must take the time to slow our minds, to learn from the lessons around us, to hear our instincts as they guide us to achieving all we have ever hoped for. Happiness is just a moment away.
I am a strong Ojibwe woman who is living proof of the strength and survival power of the human spirit. I lost the man who meant the world to me, my Father, at the tender age of 17. At 20, I lost my newborn daughter to SIDS. I lost one of my best friends to a brain aneurysm and then I said goodbye to my mentor and guide, my Mother. I have spent more nights than I care to count in a shelter for abused women and know what it’s like to close your eyes and HONESTLY believe you will never see your children again. I know poverty, the type of poverty that has you boiling water to bathe and eating once every 3 days because there simply is no other option. I have sold furniture for food and I have debated whether this life was truly worth continuing.
But I also know the beauty of a child’s love and the serenity that can be found in knowing with all your heart that you are going to be just fine. I know the strength that can be found in counting your blessings and in forgiving yourself. I know the strength of my belief system and the healing power of laughter and I know how simply amazing and wonderful this life can be, right now, not in some distant future, for I live it every single day.
A Daily Inspirational Guide created to inspire you to find your own inner strength and power in the tradition of the majestic warrior.
An Aboriginal heritage is not mandatory to enjoy the example and the gift of the inner strength, the resolve, the humour, the joy of the First Nations peoples and their teachings so join me and we will walk together as we each follow our own life paths to a positive fulfilling future!
This book was created to remind YOU that you ARE indeed a WARRIOR who has survived monumental hardships; someone who is just beginning to see the strength and peace contained in your very soul; someone who is beginning to embrace and understand your abilities as you conquer fears and emerge as the person you were destined to be!
Her Mother's Daughter
Solutions have yet to be found by staring at challenges; happiness cannot be found by looking at lack and peace is not found by looking anywhere but inside. – Sandi Boucher
Her Mother’s Daughter is a daily inspirational guide in the traditional and style laid out in Sandi Boucher’s first book, “Honorary Indian”. “Her Mother’s Daughter” once again uses the teachings of the Ojibwe peoples as a basis for life, a guide to finding your own inner strength and resolve, a map to finding your true happiness even in this modern world.
Reconciliation – a great plan or a dirty word?
So many are confused, so many are offended.
What IS reconciliation anyways? Is it even possible?
Sandi Boucher uses her personal, conversational, and comforting style to discuss this very hard subject. Known for speaking “to hearts and not minds”, Sandi walks us down The PATH to reconciliation or rather, the TWO paths – one for non-Indigenous Canadians and one for the Indigenous themselves.
Humorous at times, informative always, this book is meant to spark a conversation – first in your own mind (as you unpack what you were unwittingly handed) and then, with that person you have wanted to build a bridge with.
Is it time for reconciliation?
Only you can answer that question, after you complete The PATH!
