ShawnaPercy.com is LIVE!

It’s official! ShawnaPercy.com is now live!

What’s the difference between ShawnaPercy.com and Good Grief Guru? Good Grief Guru is an important blog resource focused on grief and resiliency. It includes raw article snapshots of my journey through grief and recovery, important resources for widow(er)s and those at risk for suicide, my Happy Thought collection, and more.

ShawnaPercy.com is focused on my journey as an author. It includes information on my book, Breathe, a list of book signing events, speaking engagements, and a store. It’s also a reflection that, although our grief journeys are an important part of who we are, they are not all that we become. Our lives can be more than the events we’ve lived through and the losses we’ve endured. Our lives can continue to be full of gain, new insights, rich experiences, and the passing on of the legacies we’ve created through the hardships we have survived.

Good Grief Guru will always have its place. It may no longer take up my focus every day, but that is how it should be. At the same time, there is gold within its borders and I wouldn’t trade that treasure for anything. The experiences I’ve encountered I will call upon when needed. Nothing need become ashes unless we let the fire die.

Thank you for continuing to journey with me. I hope you enjoy your tour of ShawnaPercy.com



What’s new at Good Grief Guru?

If you’ve come to this page by visiting



As you may already know my published book, Breathe, is about to be released. That means I’ve needed to make some changes.

1) Since Breathe is published in my maiden name, it was time I made that change legal. I’ll be sure to post more on that experience another time.

2) My grief was an important part of my life journey, but looking ahead my future is more than my past. For that reason I am adding a new site: www.ShawnaPercy.com

Good Grief Guru is an important resource and will remain intact. ShawnaPercy.com will become an additional resource with a link back to GoodGriefGuru.com. The purpose of ShawnaPercy.com is to enable guests to see where I’m speaking next, what topics I’m covering that may or may not be related to grief, and to find out what other projects I have on the go (i.e. perhaps there’s a published children’s book in the future…who knows 😉 )

3) ShawnaPercy.com will also give visitors the opportunity to tap into new resources, and purchase Breathe: a true story about marriage, faith, and attempted suicide.

Thank you for your patience while I get this set up. Once these changes are complete I’ll make another announcement letting you know it’s official.
