The Sound of Gravel ~ the Woman Behind the Book: A Conversation with New York Times Best-Selling Author Ruth Wariner

Details: Ruth Wariner is an all-around amazing woman. Author; friend; survivor; speaker; teacher - I am so incredibly blessed to be able to call her my friend. I can't wait for you to meet her and share our very heart-felt conversation.

This conversation focuses on Ruth, the woman. We talk some about her harrowing, and heroic, story which you can discover and enjoy by getting her amazing book The Sound of Gravel but during our time together we dive into how that story has informed her life.

You will discover the truly inspirational spirit of this strong and generous woman, who realized she had choices in who she could ultimately be, and the actions she took for herself, and for her siblings.

We talk about the 7-year process of writing this book, how you work through memories and the pain they can bring, and what was the most difficult part of the process. I can't wait for you to meet Ruth.

Quote: "I realized, in learning about other people's [religious] beliefs, that I had a choice in how to live my life. And, for me, that was incredibly freeing."
