Terri Tate - A Crooked Smile

How do you keep going when the doctors give you a two percent chance of survival? For Terri Tate, it was a blend of faith, perseverance, prescription-strength humor—and most of all, a heart that never quit. “I had to stop reproaching myself for not being able to adhere to any one system of treatment,” writes Terri. “I needed to create my own recipe for healing.”
“This book is the story of her journey, the amazing people she met along the way, the quirky peace she has found. It’s thrilling in its insight and first-rate storytelling. She’s come through a mess, and like all great people you’d love to know better, she’s a bit of a mess. So you want her to come sit next to you at the table, and tell you her story-- that the world did not scroll out the way it was supposed to. This book is a chance to sit with her for a while. What she found was what we all seek, the richest gift that life has to offer, and the reason we are here. She found and fell in love with her wild divine gorgeous screwed up and deeply human self. You can tell that I love her and love love love this book. They contain treasures. Come on in.”
