Living through hard times and trauma is tough; writing about it can be excruciating but Allison Graham does both with grace and humor. She leads the way back to the light and anoints a new generation of Resiliency Ninjas.

There are so many self-help books available today, but this one stands out as a fresh perspective on age-old issues. How do I overcome self-doubt, is it o.k. to pause and be sad; how do I keep going when I want to curl up in a corner; how can I stand up when everyone says lay down? The answers are in the book Married My Mom, Birthed a Dog: How to Be Resilient When Life Sucks!

From time to time when life truly sucks, I pick up this book and feel better. You should too!
