During this week’s Facebook Live I was so excited to be joined by my daughter Laurel, unveiling the cover of our yet to be released book. We have been very hard at work these last few months. It has been an enormous challenge but while writing “Keep Looking Up” we experienced the healing of our soul. This book has given us the strength to move forward and help others.
Five years ago, we lost my husband (and Laurel’s father) by suicide. And then two years ago, my son (Laurel’s brother) died in the same way. We titled the book “Keep Looking Up” because that’s what we had to do. We couldn’t move forward in our lives without looking up.
Who would imagine that the night we unveiled our book cover was the eve of World Suicide Prevention Day, a day designated to remember those affected by suicide (I did another Facebook Live on Tuesday. Click here to watch that!)
We lived in a bubble prior to these tragedies. Then our beautiful life, our family of four, changed abruptly and altered our realities completely. The process of healing taught both Laurel and I, lots about ourselves and other people too. We learned how so many people are forced to deal with so much tragedy. We discovered that everybody has a story and that is what prompted writing our book. It was to tell our story and hopefully help others dealing with trauma. It is to help those who need clarity in defining their vision and helping cope.
I expressed how excited I am now to be working with young people dealing with crisis in their lives. We want to help breathe new life into their purpose with our program. We can’t wait to help those that need to find focus and gain vision in their life. We hope to inspire them. We know a lesson learned is a journey. We cannot wait to meet you. Come out and celebrate the release of our book with us.
We scheduled our book release on 11-11-2019 which was my son Cole’s birthday.
