Becoming Kate is the story of a heart.  In 2013, Kate was midway through a powerful, transformative journey.  She wondered if it was possible to let go of everything she had created to survive and embrace a life filled with passion and purpose. The final leg of her journey returned her to her childhood home to face the demons  that had haunted her and kept her from the life she wanted to live.  Kate shares twelve compelling lessons she learned as she reconciled her past, restored peace to her soul, and released her heart's passion to live.
