About Born to Shine
Born to Shine is a story of loss, resilience, and the life-changing lessons found in the darkest seasons of life.
When Ashley LeMieux and her husband lost their children in an adoption battle, it sent her into a tailspin that, ultimately, taught Ashley how to soar. Most people live with constant fears, burdens, and pains. Born to Shine shares Ashley’s message of hope for women brave enough to say that everything is not okay. The message is also for those who want the courage to believe they are not done yet—the unique message that acknowledges the overwhelming truth that even when life is in ruins, people can still shine. Born to Shine tells the LeMieux’s story in installments with alternating chapters and practical applications in between. It shares stories, lessons, and practical tools to help women shine despite the darkness, to press forward one day at a time even when there is no end in sight, and to turn their most painful moments into their greatest teachers and signposts to true, deep, unassailable joy.
I love it when you read a non-fiction book that reads as easily as a fiction book. Born to Shine was that kind of book for me. I read it so quickly because I didn’t want to put it down, even though I knew what happened in Ashley LeMieux’s story.
Her story is one of heart break and loss. But it’s also one of hope and faith. I love the way she was able to not only survive her loss, but thrive despite it. Through this the reader is able to learn that they too can survive and thrive, no matter what comes their way.
I loved that this book made me laugh in parts, but it also made me cry in parts. It’s a human story and it’s one that everyone should read. Go grab your copy now!
I was sent an e-copy of Born to Shine as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
