Grateful!

Grateful!

Grateful to learn that my book has been nominated for the Georgia Author of the Year Award in the Inspirational-Religious category.

Grateful for the opportunity to tell my story.

Grateful for the opportunity to encourage others to tell their stories.

Mostly grateful for Jesus’ story of hope and healing as we become who we are.

I recently learned of a young person whose life was taken by suicide. My heart breaks for that soul and the family.  Jesus’ story reminds me that hope remains. That we are not defined by our worst days.  That we are enough.  No matter what. And though it may not seem like it in our darkest days, a resurrection is possible.  Light will always make a way.

We must continue to tell this story.  Depression is an illness.  It is not our fault.  We do not bring this on ourselves.  It is not a sign of weakness.

Help, Healing and Hope is available… Always!

See what New York Times Best Selling Author Barbara Brown Taylor has to say about my new book, Becoming Who I Am: Reflections on Wholeness and Embracing Our Divine Stories (Church Publishing 2015):

“This slim volume is full of infectious rhythms and memorable lines, but you will have to read it yourself to discover which ones are calling your name. Beth-Sarah Wright has done what all good writers do: she has found the universal story in her story and made an offering of it for the rest of us.”

-Barbara Brown Taylor, author, Learning to Walk in the Dark

Description: Our stories anchor us as we experience the vicissitudes of life. They strengthen us, inspire us, and encourage us as we grow older. This book offers Jesus’ story as a real-life mirror to our own stories, ultimately making God’s story, our story, and our story, God’s story.  From Begotten, to Suffering Death, to Glory, and the Life of the World to Come, the author uses spiritual reflections, poetry, and the Nicene Creed to give new meaning to real-life circumstances of identity, pain, family life, dealing with depression, and ultimate healing. Becoming Who I Am encourages us to embrace and tell our whole stories and to discover our divine capacity for true life transformation and joy.
