Author Sarah Styf loved to write essays about her life on her blog - she wrote for years. Eventually she decided to create a book from those essays, a collection for her her kids to read someday. The essays that were meant for family held a larger lesson for anyone looking for the meaning in life and ways to adjust when life doesn't work out as planned so she self-published them as a book titled "Embracing the Journey: Learning to Grow When Life Doesn't Work Out as Planned"
