Maria Shriver lives an extraordinary life— a mother of four, a Peabody Award–winning and Emmy Award–winning journalist and producer, a six-time New York Times best-selling author, a tireless Alzheimer’s advocate, and an NBC News special anchor—and all that has allowed her to reflect on critical places to pause: how hard it is, and how important. Her book, I’ve Been Thinking . . . Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life is featured in our Mar/Apr 2018 issue.
