Choosing Hope, Finding Joy will go out for pre-reads in March. I hope to have a focus group read the manuscript and get some testimonials to add to this page at that time. This book started out as something completely different, and I was led to offer a very different perspective, but important perspective of trauma, loss and grief. I hope that it will help many people understand how trauma can affect us and begin to break the stigma of reaching out for mental health support.

With honesty and courage Sheri McGuinness invites us into some of the most difficult years of her life and allows us to walk with her as she relives both her excruciating losses and her brave journey to healing.The simplicity of Sheri’s style of writing serves her challenging topics well; it undercuts the terrible tragedy of her traumas with everyday details and emotions that remind us that we, too, might have walked in her shoes. The value of this book, however, shines in Sheri’s decisions not to give up and her clear descriptions of what helped her keep going. Chock full of resources and information about how to locate them, Sheri’s story reminds us of the resiliency of the human spirit and the important role of personal and professional support in helping us make our way though life’s dark times. This book also reinforces the power that comes from finding the words to tell one’s story and demonstrates that while we may not have a choice in the way our life story unfolds, we do have the ability to write our own ending.

Choosing Hope, Finding Joy is an intimate and powerful story about the resilience of the human spirit. This true story of loss and trauma is a page-turner. It is authentically shared to assist others reclaim balance and peace in their own lives. I read it in one sitting and recommend the inspiring words of Sheri McGuinness to be a model for reclaiming joy after the heartbreak of multiple life tragedies. It gives hope to the reader that meaning and purpose can be forged from devastating loss. It reminds us that there is in each of us that same indomitable essence that encourages us to choose hope, and to find joy.

Choosing Hope, Finding Joy is Sheri McGuinness’s true account of the traumatic losses she has experienced in her life and how she lived through the agony of those losses and eventually learned to reclaim her sense of hope, meaning, purpose, and joy. Her poignant story is so beautifully and honestly told—sincerely from the heart. McGuinness is powerfully adept at describing her experiences in such a way that the reader feels the agony and sorrow of her losses; yet, at the same time, her sure and soothing voice weaves a message of reassuring hope throughout. McGuinness’s courage in sharing her vulnerability is a testament to the healing work she has done—and continues to do—and which she so lovingly shares with those whose healing journeys have only just begun. Choosing Hope, Finding Joy is truly a gift to the community of people who need to know that, indeed, there is hope and joy to be found even in the aftermath of tragic loss.
