This heartfelt emotional memoir portrays the author’s very personal story of the trials and tribulations with life’s many “ups & downs” when life raises you up and knocks you down. From depression & anxiety about being a mom and raising a family with all its joys & struggles. She discovers a new understanding on how life works. From the misunderstanding that how our feelings & emotions are affected by outside circumstances which seem out of our control and loss of hope to a new understanding that we can have an inner calm of peace within the storms of life and ride the waves of turmoil that life unexpectedly sends our way with grace & resiliency.

The author is very brave and courageous for sharing this very personal story so that others can gain insight & wisdom on how to handles life many “ups & downs”.
