The picture above is from the top of STARR MOUNTAIN in Cherokee National Forest. Jennifer saw this view the day she died and told Josh it was the most beautiful site she had ever seen.
My story begins in trauma, plods through depression and grief but eventually, it reaches a place of healing and hope. If you are in the midst of such pain, or if you know someone dealing with a life-changing brokenness, if you are seeking hope and healing for yourself, I pray my story will help you. As I document the long road I traveled, I share resources, practices, suggestions, ideas, and experiences I encountered during my sixteen-year journey.
On April 13, 2002, I began my walk through the valley of grief and wondered if I would ever feel mended or healed. When I started writing my blog in 2012 it had been ten years since Jennifer died. I poured out my pain, sharing good times and bad, and I finally focused on writing this book in earnest in 2014.
