Handling and Healing the Skeletons in Your Genealogical Closet: Lessons from an expert in utilizing human tragedy to create family triumph!

Those of you who have met me or read my blogs understand my passion for families, including bridging the gap between ourselves and our ancestors.  That passion extends to healing our modern day families and the legacies left behind by others, whether noble or ignoble. I’m excited to announce that my dear friend and nationally renowned speaker Bridget Cook will be our keynote speaker during our Family History Expo Friday night dinner in Mesa this weekend, the 21st.  Not only will there be a delicious dinner, and personally signed copies of Bridget’s most recent bestselling book, Shattered Silence, the Untold Story of a Serial Killer’s Daughter, there will be deep insight and even healing of beliefs and families.

We saw this at the Family History Expo recently in Atlanta.  There were so many great comments from audience members – some trying to find the horse thieves and the moonshiners in their histories, and some still trying to heal from darker secrets generations later.  We all have skeletons in our closets if we go back far enough, just as we all have great and mighty warriors, kings, and likely a few poets here and there.  But what I’ve learned is that what really matters is what we do with the insights and lessons we receive from being related to those whose actions are not as noble.

Bridget Cook has a unique and empowering gift for opening doors – doors that people sometime struggle with when it has to do with facing painful events and family members.  But with great love and compassion, Bridget brings out the positive lessons that can be learned from every family member – no matter their behaviors and choices. In her journeys as a writer, Bridget has been able to discover some exquisite pearls of wisdom in truly dealing with the skeletons in the family closet. I was very touched when she gave this talk in Atlanta, and in light of the recent events in Arizona, Bridget will be able to shed some light into the psyche of individuals, families and communities that struggle with tragedy. She will also provide tender, honest, and valuable tips as well as insightful techniques for handling, and truly even healing, the skeletons in your family history.
