An Angel in My Shoes

As promised last week, I’m releasing an excerpt from my yet to be published book, AND A CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM: FROM UNTHINKABLE TRAGEDY TO UNEXPECTED FAITH. It’s a spiritual memoir about my family learning to live again after loss thanks to Heavenly messages from my charismatic six year-old sister, Sommar (pronounced “summer”), who guided our way as we found the courage to live our authentic lives.

Though I strongly believe in the inspiring and hopeful story I have to share—a story I believe I was destined to tell—it’s been hard to push forward with this retelling of my family’s tragedy; So difficult to put out there for all to read such personal accounts of finding the courage to be the person you are destined to be.

Like a skydiver ready to conquer their fear of heights, I stand poised at the open door trying to trust that the equipment won’t fail me, trying to convince myself to take this leap of faith.

And I tell myself as I take a deep breath and let go, the words of Wayne Gretzky: “You miss 100% of shots you don’t take.”

Below you will find Chapter 19, An Angel in My Shoes, the most requested excerpt from last week’s blog poll...
