Life is tough. It is filled with uncertainty and situations we have little to no control over. After a few decades on this planet, we all have experienced loss, heartbreak, disappointment, betrayal, unfair situations, obstacles, difficulties, and fears. In my newest book, "Still Standing," you can discover how to overcome anything. I am still standing after my daughter, Jamie's addiction, her shooting at the age of 18, and her senseless murder when she was only 30 years old.


Whether someone knocks on your door and delivers the worst news ever or you’re dealing with everyday issues, life can knock us to the mat. No matter what you face today, you can learn to live courageously.
