About Keep Looking Up
Over the past few months, my daughter Laurel and I have been hard at work on our upcoming book, “Keep Looking Up”. Writing this book has been such a challenging and healing process, and I’m so glad that I got to go through it with such a strong and beautiful woman!
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.
Previous to this happening, we had a really rockin’ life! We kind of lived in a bubble as our beautiful, tight, family of four. However, after everything happened, our realities were altered completely. Laurel and I went through a lot of very difficult changes that came from our newly and abruptly altered realities. We learned a lot about ourselves and other people in the process.
When we were forced out of our bubble, we started hearing from other people that had also been through similar experiences. We started to discover that everybody has a story. That’s why we decided to write our book. To tell our story and hopefully help other people experiencing trauma and adversity.
