I consider myself a fairly ordinary person who has been the recipient of some undeniably extraordinary experiences. First and foremost, I am a loving mother, which I believe is my main purpose in this life. I am also a child of God, a wife, daughter, sister, friend and peacemaker.
I was compelled to write this book in large part because the unthinkable happened to me. My 26-year-old son, Jerome, was killed in a horrific car crash four years ago. No warning, no time to preparejust excruciating pain that was so intense I thought it might kill me. The bottom dropped out of my world.
Jerome’s death, and my struggle to make sense of it, has formed the basis of my life for the past four years. I was guided to many amazing healers and profound healing experiencessome simple and completely understandable, others quite bizarre and sometimes incomprehensible. You will read about many of my experiences in these pages.
I created this book as a way to offer hope, inspiration and healing to parents and families dealing with health challenges, loss and death. I have met hundreds of parents who have lost children (as well as hundreds of people struggling with their own physical, emotional and spiritual health). Many of these people were searching for answers they couldn’t find and seemed to have lost all hope of ever again having a normal, happy life.
I wanted this book to be a practical guide for life, death, grief and health. However, what I most have to share is my own story. My own extremely personal and intimate journey is very much a part of this book. Most of what you are about to read I have not even shared with my family members or friends. I feel a kind of tender vulnerability as I offer this book to the world. Lee, my loving and patient husband, has lived my journey as closely as one possibly could. I am grateful beyond words that Lee was with me during such intense experiences. If not for his calming presence I most certainly would have missed many of God’s blessings.
Some of my experiences may challenge your belief systems or worldview. My request is that you allow this book to speak to you through your heart rather than through your intellect. There may be some still, quiet part of you that recognizes the truth of my story, even if your mind tells you it’s quite impossible. All I can tell you is that, without the experiences I’ve had since Jerome died, I’m not sure I would have been able to survive. My life since he left has been nothing short of a total (and sometimes cataclysmic) rebirth.
We all have our own unique circumstances to overcome and rise above. The circumstances of my life have been amazing learning experiences that have led me to my own personal truth. Meeting and overcoming these challenges have taken me from a place of illness and despair to a healthy life and a sense of peace and acceptance. I believe that my mission in life is to discover my purpose, follow my intuition and be the best I can be. Only then am I able to shine my light as a beacon for others, so they can see that true healing is possible.
If you are reading this book, it is possible that you have faced health challenges, or have lost a child or someone dear to you. If that is your experience, I am so sorry for your loss. I encourage you not to give up; keep searching until you find the answers that bring health to your body and peace and comfort to your soul.
It is my hope that you might be inspired by my experiences and comforted by the knowledge that I understand how you feel (as only someone who has traveled that road can). I hope that your life will improve, in some way, as a result of sharing in my journey through chronic pain and illness, death, grief, spiritual insight and back to a life of healing and peace.
