Autumn Toelle-Jackson has lived a life of love and loss, filled with happiness and marked by tragedy. Labels are too simple, but they do have meaning and they do tell part of her story: wife, widow, mother, survivor. The loss of a husband, a beloved cousin and mentor, her daughter, and miscarriages have left scars on her soul and memorial tattoos on her body, but Autumn learned to grow through it all.
She found love and reasons to get up each day until those days strung into weeks, then months, then years. This is her story. Besides writing Boldly into the Darkness, Autumn and her family have also created www.GrowingwithGrief.com to provide those who are grieving with a place to find community, resources, and help.
