About the Book    About the Author

On an August night in San Francisco, a 22-year-old named Teal collapsed from a sudden, unexplainable cardiac arrest. Six days later she died, but not before a spiritual unfolding began that changed the life of her mother forever. These essays – each one a personal touch into the divine – chart her mother’s path as she confronts painful events she’d been holding onto, and opens herself up to more joy than she ever thought possible. A truly inspiring book for anyone who is grief-stricken, facing major shifts in life, or simply looking for more peace and happiness.

heart that were, until this moment, neatly covered over... Your writing is a
reminder to embrace all of who I am - surrender to it - and allow myself to
accept and be all of who I authentically am. I'm encouraged that it is
absolutely okay to show up in my life as myself, for I am enough."

"This book allowed me to allow in a way all the self-help
stuff I’ve read has not. Its searing honesty has given me a permission toward
Truth I have not had. I am deeply grateful and much more accepting of myself
because of Surrendering to Joy."

-- Susan Putnam

"Grief can be incapacitating, it's wonderful to see
it as a catalyst to even greater things. Thanks, Teal!"

"Surrendering to Joy is a powerful reminder me of
the spirit of life written from the depths of the soul."
