The Library.. coming soon!

The library in memory of Mariah at Crossroads for Woman is now under construction!!

It’s been a long road getting to this point. But it’s been healing for my heart. Loosing Mariah has been devastating, not just for me and my family but even more so for Mariah’s family. For those of us who knew Mariah her suicide has left us with a gaping hole that will never be filled. For me doing something to honor her memory and bring light to her struggle was/is my way of mourning. I refuse to let her memory fade. Her struggle… my son’s struggle can’t be for nothing. God has been guiding me towards a path for some time now, he has been preparing me for this path and I am honored to do his will. Showing kindness to others who have been struggling with depression and addiction and bringing awareness to suicide and to an epidemic of this magnitude will be my life’s mission. I don’t know where this road will take me but I’m in it for the long haul. I have to… I need to!

The dream to build a library in Mariah’s memory is now a reality. Thanks to some wonderful people who have helped me, we have managed to earn the money needed for this project. I’m in complete aw! I know it will hit me once completed. My goal was to have this library up by March 7th, Mariah’s birthday. All the baking and long drives to Tempe twice a week to sell were so worth it. Thanks to the incredible recovery community who welcomed us and bought and donated with their hard working money to this project is now underway and will be ready on Mariah’s Birthday. Praising GOD and giving HIM all the glory!
