"You are about to embark on an authentic journey. Carolyn's book covers it all: humanity, love, compassion, forgiveness, joy, and celebration. Her fresh approach is deeply moving. The book provides real tools to move you forward in your life."
-Elisabeth Fayt, author, Paving It Forward, international speaker
No woman ever imagines, while standing at the altar with her new husband, that she will ever discover he is gay-especially down the road, after twenty-seven years of marriage. In You Celebrate ...You!, Carolyn Brown shares her poignant personal story as she helps lead other women with the same experience through an inspirational and healing journey away from the pain, rejection, and despair of gay spousal disclosure and into a sense of calm, love, and joy.
Through personal anecdotes and the stories of others, Brown motivates women to look within themselves to cope and ultimately heal from traumatic upheaval in a trusted relationship. While teaching women how to refrain from dwelling on their own hurt, turning the focus away from their spouses and toward themselves, Brown provides step-by-step guidance on how to face change, look back on a marriage with gratitude, lose the attachment to the pain, and envision a new future.
You Celebrate ...You! encourages women to rediscover themselves, to celebrate their lives-their passions and their joys-and, most importantly, to look inside themselves to heal.
