A few years ago, one of my young adult children (while at college)  experienced an unsuccessful suicide attempt. Praise God she was unsuccessful.

No parent wants their child to struggle with anxiety, stress, depression, or suicidal thoughts.

Statics prove these struggles are becoming the “new normal.” Parents we cannot accept this!  In Messy Hope: Help Your Kids Overcome Anxiety, Depression, or Suicidal Ideation, readers will discover how to proactively arm their child and how to help their child in the midst of struggle.

The mental health of our kids is critical, life and death critical. Together with my daughter, whose voice is sprinkled throughout Messy Hope, we provide personal and additional insight along with tools to combat this new epidemic.

So … I am gathering a book launch team for Messy Hope which will be released by New Hope Publishers August 23rd. This is an important project and its message and tools are much needed. Together we can be a community that fights for our kids by empowering them with hope.

Would you consider joining my daughter and me in the quest to find hope in a hard world? Pre-order Messy Hope and then apply to join the team.

This launch team is unlike most book launch teams. Yes, we want to get the news of the Messy Hope’s release out there but we will also function as a community where we will discuss the book and unpack the hope-filled tools contain within its pages.

Here’s the link for more details and to apply for the Messy Hope launch team:
