A fellow Idaho author, and a friend, has a great story. I am happy to host her this week, and share her story and her work. Her non-fiction is outside the realm of my normal reading. But her story is so unusual, her words so poignant, that I just had to share. If you enjoyed “Heaven is For Real” you will love this book, Hitting Fear Head On.

HFHO Book Cover FinalStepping Stones Cover FinalA parent has no greater fear than the loss of a child. What if you knew with chilling certainty that your child was going to die, but did not know exactly how or when? What if you survived the accident that killed your child? These questions come to life on these pages.

“Laurie Boggs has been wounded by the darkness and redeemed by the light. What she has been through, and what she learned, is a message of inspiration and hope for everyone. She turned tragedy into its opposite — not just for herself, but for anyone who reads her story.”
– Marianne Williamson, #1 NY Times Bestselling Author

“Laurie Boggs’ survival of the tragic ordeal makes her a heroine in my eyes. Hitting Fear Head On is a true life account that is gripping and compelling. This book is a true testament to the power of love, courage, and fortitude. You will be touched.”
– Richard Paul Evans, #1 NY Times Bestselling Author

Laurie Moon Boggs has studied extensively in the fields of emotional healing and spiritual counseling. She is a Certified Vipassana Meditator, as well as a Certified Intuitive, Clairvoyant, Certificate of Ordination and Reiki Master. However, her most difficult lessons came through the ‘school of hard knocks’, including overcoming a family history of alcoholism, abuse, and finally infertility. Ironically, it comes full circle when alcoholism ultimately takes the life of her only miracle child and impairs her motor skills for life.

Courage, fortitude, and the ability to connect with the spirit of her son have helped her to turn tragedy into blessings. She is a survivor who, together with her husband, uses their knowledge and experience to lobby for state and national legislation.

I am not sure where she got them, they are very blurry and hard to read. In addition 18 Stepping Stones to Transforming Grief is a companion book to Hitting Fear Head On. She has them under two different genres. They both are inspirational/self help
