What if you took some time each week to focus on a question, topic, or change in your life? Life On Purpose: Reflections offers 52 insightful and illuminating stories. Each story guides you to spend the week ahead with attention to an intention on a gentle journey through life. 

Life On Purpose is divided into three parts – Lessons From Kids, Lessons From Others and Lessons From Life.  Each section contains thought provoking and often life changing insights on our everyday interactions with others and our inner selves. One week at a time we find a gentle transformation happening as we live and walk with the stories of hope, encouragement, and faith.

Teresa Moore is a physician, teacher, healer, mother, writer, and artist. From an early age, she has labored to integrate western medicine with holistic healing, believing that health encompasses the “wholeness” of body, mind, and energy. With a gift of seeAuthorPhotoing the world slightly differently than most, she brings a fascinating, funny, touching, and timeless world of wonder to her work.

Teresa also serves on the board of directors at Turning Point as our Vice President of Networking & Educational Development. She has generously contributed the proceeds of her first published book to Turning Point and its mission. We are grateful for the gifts she brings to the world and to us.
