In 2005, Audrey wrote one of our bestselling books, Get Over It! and it continues to be a comforting resource for those experiencing grief.

"I didn't die when my loved ones died. I went through, rather than around, the door of pain to the other side. I experienced deep loneliness, and endured visceral pain with my head held high. Through my losses, I turned my sorrows into gifts to help others cope and heal. Growth can shine through your sorrow...Believe and it will happen! Tap into your gifts to give you strength in your deepest, darkest days. Realize that you will again feel the sun's warmth, hear the birds' sweet music and look forward to each new day with anticipation and grace, if you make that your choice. You will survive if you believe. "
