Discover your true self and find hope beyond your messy relationships! 

As a mental health therapist, Judy prepares to see her next client. As a wife, she’s falling apart in the midst of her husband’s psychosis. His inpatient psychiatrist said, “This is going to be a hard case.”

Her first marriage of three decades ended in divorce after toxic patterns of chronic bitterness. Facing the shame of her past and mothering four children, she recognizes divine invitations toward her authentic self. After four years into a new marriage with her beloved dance partner, Judy suddenly faces frightful realities.

Beyond Messy Relationships is not only an intense and dramatic memoir. It’s a mix of psychological wisdom and spiritual inspiration that will help make sense of your deep feelings. Find hope through Judy’s formula of breathing in fresh AIR: Awareness, Intentionality, and Risks. Recognize divine invitations beyond the messes. Your authentic self is worth the journey. 

Can Judy’s second marriage recover from damage caused by his psychosis?
