New Paperback and eBook: Heartfelt



Have you been in a conversation and see tears in another’s eyes? Or walk in on someone who is crying? Or heard about a friend facing tragedy? These are opportunities to make a difference for someone facing heartbreak. How we respond to the sorrow of others reveals something important about ourselves. None of us are strangers to sorrow. Facing loss has inspired our capacity to care. Heartfelt is about drawing on our strength to build a caring community. We can make a difference by reaching three touchstones: witnessing at the threshold, stabilizing in the storm, and mobilizing at transformation. A touchstone is a piece of fine-grained dark schist or jasper used for testing alloys of gold by observing the color of the mark which they made on it. This book is about the touchstones for comforting others facing the anguish of loss. By revealing the gold existing within them we enrich a community that makes us strong. Heartfelt is available now on Amazon as a paperback and an eBook.
