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.
On Tuesday, May 13, watch AM Northwest at 9:00am on KATU. If you miss the show, we will tape it and post the show once we secure it. If you looking to hear Jill speak, you will really like this show. Jill will dazzle you with her insight.
If you are waiting to hear me speak, I am afraid you will be disappointed. If they ask me yes/no questions, I am a star. But beyond that, I struggle. I am sure a few of you saw that at Teri Oelrich’s author party Saturday night. I handled the yes/no questions, but beyond that, I had a tough time.
