I have seen author Bethany Howard learn to take advantage of her own permission, and then lead others by the hand to find the permission they so desperately want and need. Let Bethany show you how to show up for your own life through her book Permission Granted. Don’t live one more day with you being the main nay-sayer in your own life.

Meet the Author

Bethany Howard

I’ve been married for 20 years and am mom to three little people who are growing to be less little every day. The dog, the cat, and my four immediate family members all do their part to chisel me into the person that I have the potential to be. I enjoy coffee, music, chocolate, shopping, laughing, reading, writing, and sometimes running but never cleaning. Just keeping it real. Thanks for joining me here. And if you find yourself with a bit of mess around you, a list of things to do, a strong desire for a chocolate snack of some sort, passion in your heart and a song stuck in your head – that’s right where I am, too. I think we will be great friends. I love hearing from people on the same journey I am on, the journey of discovering that oftentimes we are holding ourselves back, because after all, permission has already been granted. Email me to say hi, I promise you will hear back from me.

Bethany’s writing is raw, emotional, powerful. Her delivery is direct, while still allowing me to apply it to my own life. Every piece in Permission Granted gives the reader permission to look into themselves and find the strength to feel all the feels, but also the encouragement and the power to move onward to something more.

Permission Granted takes you on a journey of intentional self-reflection that is refreshing and empowering. Bethany Howard’s vulnerability is her strength as she invites us to confront the lies, pressures, and expectations that hold us back from embracing the fullness of life. Armed with honesty and authenticity, the path Bethany takes us on is one that leads to hope in the possibilities for a present and future where we have been freed from the confines of our personal fears and limitations. Permission Granted will help free you of burdens while also taking you deeper into the potential for life at the same time.
