Published my story

As of today, a paperback and e-book version of my story is available on Amazon.

It is called, "it's okay to be okay; finding joy through grief" by Emilie Lancour. Right now it can be found by searching for either my name or the subtitle.

Here is the description of the book:

After unexpectedly losing my husband, I journaled to connect with my faith and to understand why God allowed this to happen. We had been married for over twenty years and were raising three teenage boys together. I wasn't sure how to get up daily; how to grieve while my children and family were also grieving; how to run a house; and to work a full-time job. Through a lot of prayers, scripture, meditating and writing, I found joy and acceptance of God's plan. I have discovered that I am stronger than I thought. I have learned to be a widow and a single parent. I hope to encourage others to find peace, joy, and happiness while grieving the loss of a loved one.

While I was working not he acknowledgment page, I had a meditation music station playing, and when I got to the part where I was writing about Steve, Amazing Grace was the song that played. I know it was Steve stopping by to say hi and that he was proud of me.
