I have followed Lisa Leonard online for almost a decade. I have loved getting to know their family through pictures, social media, and Lisa's blog, and getting a peek into their lives growing a business and raising their sons David and Matthias. David was born with Cornelia de Lange syndrome, and has multiple disabilities.
Lisa's heart has always shone brightly through her jewelry designs and blog posts, so when I first heard about this book, written in a memoir style, I couldn't wait to read it, and joined the launch team.
Lisa opens her heart with such grace and vulnerability in her writing. BRAVE LOVE tells her life story; from putting her needs and wants last to learning to do the work of making space for herself in her work, her marriage, and her motherhood.
I truly believe this book will save marriages and change lives. Recommended especially for those who struggle with taking up space in the world and putting their needs on equal footing with others'.
I was deeply moved by Lisa's disarming honesty, and proud to serve on the Brave Love launch team. I received a free advance copy by the publisher; all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Brave Love released January 29th. You can order it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or find it wherever books are sold.
