WHY SHARE YOUR STORY?
Are you ready to inspire others with how you healed from your past or overcame a challenge in your life?
Have you always wanted to write about your journey but didn’t quite know how or where to begin?
Sacred Hearts Rising wants to help. We are creating a compilation book of stories from survivors of traumas that have affected their lives. Topics range from sexual, physical, mental, emotional abuse and addictions to people who have lost a child or have a child with special needs, illness, suicide, cutting, rape, incest, adoptions, dysfunctional relationships, etc. We want to help you share the challenges and triumphs of your own unique journey.
Why do it? I ask the question: Why not do it!
Your story may be the key that unlocks another person’s prison. By sharing your story of inspiration you will be helping others who are silent that have no voice or are afraid to voice their story. You will be giving hope to someone else when they feel all hope is gone.
Your chapter would be about 1800 – 2200 words long (about 8 double-spaced pages), and you would have the benefit of a writing coach and professional editor. Your bio will be 150 words.
Your only job is to write your chapter and then share the published book with your friends, wearing your new title as a published author.
To publish a book, using professional services like developmental editing, copy editing, cover and layout, formatting, with some marketing and promoting, the cost varies from $10,000 to $15,000.
Our publisher helps in blocking, promoting and marketing Sacred Hearts Rising worldwide.
With each contributor paying a small fee, we all can tell our stories and have the support of other women going on the same journey of discovery.
So why share your story with me?
Everyone has a story and Sacred Hearts Rising recognizes that many cannot openly talk about their secrets or the trauma they have suffered.
Through the Sacred Hearts Rising books we encourage women and men to share their stories about their past or traumatic events that have changed their lives. We have found that through talking about and sharing our painful pasts we all start to heal, one step at a time. The writers/authors are able to shed their fear, shame or guilt about their trauma and they realize that they are not alone in their struggles. The stories are inspirational and heart felt and show others that they too can move past their own stories to have a fuller life if they choose to.
There really is no topic of story off limits.
That is the purpose of Sacred Hearts Rising to finally break the silence around stories that so many of us face alone, because nobody wants to talk about it. But the silence around the stories is deadly and women, men and children need to be able to feel safe and free to share their own stories. There is no story bigger than the last, they are all of our stories.
Many studies have been done about the long term effects of abuse and trauma on our health in later life from holding on their stories. Sacred Hearts Rising understands those health effects and is working to help those in need, shed their past and step into a new future. But we cannot do it alone, the women and men have to take an active role is wanting to change their lives further than what we can provide. We are just a stepping stone in their journey to healing.
There is a cost associated with sharing your story within Sacred Hearts Rising Anthology. From past experience we have found that if you are not willing to invest in yourself, how can anyone else invest in you? You have to be willing participant.

Sacred Hearts Rising: Finding Your Wings
There are 27 authors in the second Sacred Hearts Rising book, within the 27 individuals is a young man sharing his own personal story.
Each person has told their story with grace and determination to show others that there is life after trauma and a life that can be appreciated with disabilities. You can create the life you want by taking the first steps towards your own personal healing journey by acknowledging, accepting and releasing what is weighting you down.
We are continuing to compile new writers for Sacred Hearts Rising Series, with men deciding to break their own silence and share their stories. We all have a story that can change the lives of another person.
There are many opportunities that have become available to the authors since telling their stories. Some have decided that speaking was their new future, while others used the book in their businesses and health and wellness centers. One is opening up a Trauma Center, several are helping other women who have lost their own identities, while some are role models for the younger generation, and one is helping other parents that are faced with difficult challenges. While some writers just wanted to tell their stories without the hassle of writing and marketing their own books.
The list is endless with opportunities to step forward and into new possibilities if they choose them. Ultimately they all have the choice to create the life they want when the opportunities present themselves, they are in the driver’s seat, no longer the passenger in life but an active participant.
So why am I doing this?
I know what it took for me to gain my life back and I tell my own story as a source of inspiration for others who are walking or who are about to walk this path.
I know firsthand that sharing my own story has made a difference in both myself and others who have read my story.
I have seen the difference it has made in other survivors of abuse and addictions.
I know that my story is making a difference in the world.
So join me in creating a wave of strong survivors who have conquered their demons from the past and help show others that it is possible to have a happy life after life’s traumas.
