Stephanni Myers, My Personal Story:
I love the grand adventure of life and my beloved family is essential to my happiness. My dear husband and business partner, Russ, is my best friend and we adore our eight children and twelve young grandchildren.
I love to travel and have been blessed to visit amazing places in the world. I love all types of people and the inspiration of a sacred life story. I have about seven and a half lifetimes of my own crazy, unbelievable, unusual --okay, bizarre -- amazing tales, and being from the south, I don’t need a lot of encouragement to share one.
I am a voracious reader and writer and I’be published several books and numerous magazine articles. I enjoy nature, gardening, art, natural medicine, hiking, glorious trees, movies (no violence!), music concerts, and laughing until my cheeks hurt. I have a difficult time understanding the concepts of “stranger” or “relax”.
