Subtitle: A true story about marriage, faith, and attempted suicide
Author: Shawna Percy
Official release date: March 11th, 2014
Have you ever wondered how you’re going to survive this next week, day, or hour? Perhaps you are standing on the fault line in the battle of your life. Perhaps you are already engaged. Whatever the case, whether your struggle is physical, spiritual, emotional, or mental, in the accumulated losses and taxing stressors you face, know you are not alone. There is hope, and a way through.
In Breathe, Shawna shares her story of marriage; an arranged marriage of sorts, that was rooted in ambiguous faith, submerged in mental and emotional captivity, and survived with glimpses of hope, learned coping strategies, and tremendous support found through vulnerability. Breathe speaks to the caregiver of someone who has attempted suicide, the individual struggling to survive mental illness, and the supportive friend or family member who wants to understand the all-to-often hidden life of a family raped by these realities. Some moments make you lose your breath. In others, all you can do is breathe. Shawna’s desire is that by sharing her story others will feel empowered to do the same. Breathe is an inside look into her life. It is also a map for hope, and a legend to help you find your way.
