Her sisters died in the house fire
The only reason she survived is her father carried her out first before running back in for her sisters where they all perished. Raised by a mother whose life was shattered by the tragedy, Lynne Cockrum-Murphy’s childhood was jolted again when her step-father died in a logging accident a few years later and culminates in the murder of her mother years later. That could have been the end of any hope of happiness, but it wasn’t. Living Hope follows Cockrum-Murphy’s life from those tragedies forward to today.
Cockrum-Murphy shares the poignant story of her experiences and the power of questioning, seeking, studying and living in hope that a joyful life is possible no matter how heartbreaking the past. She writes about dealing with trauma, loss, abuse, family alcoholism & dysfunction and shows there is a way to happiness. Interwoven throughout the book are steps to help anyone who has felt stuck to move forward from suffering and victimization into a life filled with possibilities. Her story and insights is a model of hope, action and success.
