Life Happens. We make mistakes or maybe aren’t our best selves. Sometimes the universe slams us with cosmic two-by-fours as a wake-up call to what we are (or aren’t) doing. The question is not whether you will be knocked down by life. The question is how do you get back up again?
Oh God of Second Chances, Here I Am Again is a book about what it takes to get back up again.
Through the vulnerable and honest journey of her own life experience, Christy takes readers on a journey of falling down and getting back up again with compassion and humor. Packed with tools to help you cultivate resilience, courage, authenticity, and find your way to come home to yourself.
With each step along the journey a tapestry of hope emerges. Suddenly, there’s a way forward, regardless of the struggles that lay ahead.
Christy, a seasoned social worker, draws on literary inspiration, research, and the wisdom of mystics, as well as women TEDx speakers who know a thing or two about falling down and getting back up again. Filled with exercises to help foster personal growth and the lessons she has learned from a lifetime of helping others get back up again and again; what emerges is a community you didn’t realize you needed to face this messy thing called life.
