Tune in Wednesday,April 11, 2012 at 2pmPST for Episode 12 – “A Survivor’s Story” Featuring Lynn C. Tolson and Randy Ellison.
Lynn C. Tolson is an artist, author and advocate. Her main concern is the epidemic of child abuse and the survivors needing support in our society. As a survivor herself, her life changed as she began putting pen to paper in journal writing sessions. Themes emerged regarding the impact of her sexual abuse, drug addiction, and suicide attempts. By using the journal to write about the problems and solutions discussed in her counseling sessions, a story of transformation evolved. Her desire to share a message of healing from trauma became too strong to ignore; the book became a mission. She left the corporate environment to write her story about personal yet universal emotional issues. The book “Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor’s Story”, was written with the courage to face her fears, with compassion for herself and others, and a conviction to tell the truth.”It’s a memoir about overcoming abuse and adversity. It is about mind, body, and spirit transformation and offers a message of hope.
