My book, Painful Blessing, has now been available for a month–long enough for people to read it and respond with their reactions. It is wonderful to hear from people who can relate to our experiences or who are inspired to face their challenges more boldly.
Now that our story is out there for anyone to read, we have the opportunity to listen to people who would otherwise NEVER speak about their own struggles. I am reminded that everyone wants to be heard and understood. By telling our story, others feel safe telling us their stories. It is humbling and gratifying.
