“I have personally been involved with Genevieve’s journey with Pajama Program since its early days. She left her comfortable career to take a chance on a voice from her heart that deeply challenged the life she thought she wanted. Genevieve is an inspiration to anyone who ever felt trapped in a job or life. She’s an example of how to take the leap that will fill your life with purpose and help you to be the person you really want to be.”

-Meredith Vieira

Broadcast Journalist & Television Host

“Genevieve’s decision to dramatically alter her career path after nearly 20 years was a leap of faith that has taught her about trusting yourself and living a life you believe in. She has met challenges every step of the way and is open and eager to share all the lessons she’s learned. As an author myself, I understand what it takes to translate your heartfelt purpose onto the pages of a book. I found my purpose as a chef, and I know Genevieve found her purpose in pajamas! Now she pours her heart out in the hopes of helping others find their pajamas!”

-Carla Hall

Chef, Author, TV Host

"The beautiful and inspiring journey of Genevieve Piturro reinforces the true meaning of purpose, passion, and relentless determination. It reminds us all how the power of ONE and human connections can change lives."

-Laura Schroff

#1 New York Times & Internationally

“Genevieve has inspired thousands of Carter’s employees and our customers to join in her mission to ensure that millions of children in need know that they are loved.”

-Michael D. Casey

This book is the story of how I found meaning and purpose in my life & work, and how you can, too.

When we restore the human connection to our lives, we also  restore meaning to our lives because we start to care about each other and  what we can accomplish together.

How do I know this? Because I was disconnected myself 20 years ago. It took a little girl’s simple question to unnerve me and then propel me into a life filled with meaning.


I am a witness to the power of the human connection  at work and the impact of  leading with meaning.

If it happened for me, it can happen for you.

Special thanks to the publishing team at Greenleaf Book Group, photographer Frank Rivers for the cover's pajama photo, and artist Nicole Caggiano for the surprise sketch on the last pages!


Genevieve Piturro - Author, Speaker and Founder of Pajama Program

"Leaders empower  others to tell their stories. No one's story is little. In my story, the children are little, but their stories are not. And even small acts,  be they kind or cruel, can change the story of another life - and ours."

About the Book

Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas is my personal journey. But more than that, it is a love story that compelled me to transform my life when I thought it was too late. It started with a little girl’s simple question and was followed by a tremendous and awe-inspiring show of compassion throughout the US and beyond.

Twenty years of courage and commitment, conquering fears and holding fast to faith are wrapped up in some pretty eye-opening lessons on leadership. And did I mention all the doubts about jumping off the corporate ladder?


These heartwarming and heartbreaking moments inspired me to stay the course every single day.  It is my hope that they will encourage and support you if you too are looking to transform your life and find your purpose—or as I say, find your pajamas.
