Struggling with loss and tragedy is no easy task. Joanne Johnston decided to write a novel to help people heal.
"This is my first book," says Joanne Johnston, author of "Healing in the Innermost: Letting God Do What Only God Can". "I retired last year and this has always been a dream, so I decided to take a year, work full time and get it done. So I wrote it in a year."
Joanne herself has been through many hardships and her book is meant to support people going through similar situations.
"Our daughter died when she was 18, so it's a roadmap kind of that healing is possible," says Johnston. "And maybe they can do the same things as we did to get through it to be in a better place, so my project is to help other people."
Joanne will be in Weyburn on August 14th at the Second Chance Store from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. celebrating her book.
