a writer and suicide loss survivor. I write words of hope and heart to help you through hard times. From poetry to practices, it’s all love. Take what you need. Even if life’s pretty good these days, there’s something here for you.
Art prints, meditations, books. I believe in making things with heart, things that last a lifetime and impact your life for the better. Thoughtful, helpful, a joy to give and receive. The way it should be.
This isn’t necessarily for the holiday, Thanksgiving, but now is as good a time as any to give thanks. Thanks for being alive, thanks for being together -- even if we’re only together in spirit. This prayer for thanksgiving is short and sweet. Read it at the table or just keep the words close to your heart.
I know how hard it is to keep your heart open after it's been forcibly cracked open. I also know that it's the only way to heal, connect, and feel joy rising up through the cracks where the light got in. Here are some thoughts on grief, losing the person you love so much, and keeping them in your heart for as long as you live.
If you want to do more than just make it through, get my Hope Letters. It’s the best kind of email. The kind that keeps you going, whether your life feels like a mess or a miracle today.
