Hope in a pen

Writing saved me.

It's true. After losing a young son to a cancer-related death, I found solace in my journal. That was sixteen years ago, and now I'm one of the biggest writing through grief advocates you've ever seen.

Over the years, and journals, I have found that the act of being authentic in grief brings healing for the soul.

I'm so excited about the value of putting pen to paper that I now teach workshops so that others can discover the beauty of this gift.

Writing to a Healthier YOU!, the grief and loss writing workshop in Norcross, GA this Saturday, will be a special one with two facilitators--one from Florida (Mary Jane Cronin) and one from North Carolina (Alice Wisler). It will be held from 9 AM to 4 PM at the Hampton Inn in Norcross.

Join us for a day of prompts, exercises, imagery, and helpful writing techniques that both Mary Jane and Alice have found beneficial for healing, health and hope.

Please feel free to let your friends and colleagues who could benefit from a day of hope know about this event.

Discover how healing and healthy writing can be for your grief journey.

I totally agree with you, Alice, and use my blog as a therapy tool to help me deal with my mother's Alzheimer's and share encouragement with others. My blog's tagline is Finding Hope When Life Unravels, found at
