Do you feel like your world

is spinning in circles

going nowhere?

Are you consumed with the questions-

How will I get my life back?

Can this happen again?

Tragedy and disasters create enormous disruption, panic and dismay. Not only has our normal routine been shattered, the aftermath of the catastrophe, whether it's a flood, a fire or a pandemic, needs to be contained and redirected.

Life Resumed: After a Catastrophic Event and Other Loss, has received great reviews as a powerful faith-based interactive book that addresses the issues we're currently facing due to COVID-19 and various other losses inherent in everyday life. The reader is empowered to move past the anguish and embrace the future with strength and confidence through hands-on participation and step-by-step guidance. Two sections are devoted to helping children understand their fears, with tools for parents/caregivers to address their anxieties, guidelines to initiate conversation and warning signs to determine if professional counseling is needed.

The author is well acquainted with devastating pain and loss as well as the joy that healing brings. God, always present in her life, became her anchor through her personal experiences with various tragedies including the loss of several family members and more recently her sister's death due to COVID-19.
