Author Event – Elizabeth Leon
May 6 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us on First Friday for a conversation with Elizabeth Leon, author of Let Yourself Be Loved. Elizabeth’s moving, soulful and ultimately hope-filled story will touch every mother’s heart. She reveals that in the light of faith, our deepest sufferings are an invitation to joy. Let Yourself Be Loved is a road map to find that joy in the shadow of the valley of death.
Let Yourself Be Loved explores the heart of a mother carrying a baby to term with the certainty of death. Diagnosed with trisomy 18, John Paul Raphael Leon lived only twenty-eight hours and ten minutes. Elizabeth Leon writes with unflinching honesty about the tsunami of grief and the exquisite agony of choosing to live and love in its wake.
