Love, Laugh, Be: How I Wound Up With Nine Amazing Kids (When I Only Knew About Three) And Other Extraordinary True Stories That Matter is a motivational self-help memoir, influenced by Dr. Briar Flicker-Grossman’s roots in psychoanalysis. A noted philanthropist with over 33 years as a therapist and life coach, Dr. Briar Flicker-Grossman takes us on a highly personal journey. Opening the book on her experience, she shares the power of love, communication, and a strong belief in inner development. The memoir is powerful, filled with poignant account of finding happiness no matter the circumstances.
“I have suffered my fair share of adversity,” say Flicker-Grossman. “From surviving breast cancer, bankruptcy, and a shocking false accusation against my teenaged son, I could have given into despair. Instead, I cultivated deep joy in the growth and affection I discovered along my path.”
At six years old, Flicker-Grossman discovered there is no such thing as a “bad word.” This was just the first step on her lifelong journey through love, loss, joy, and the labyrinth of family. Love, Laugh, Be tries to guide us on an uplifting world of beauty through challenges. The memoir is an honest, emotional journey to help us find relatable takeaways to use in everyday life. Flicker-Grossman found strength in adversity, hope in darkness, and purpose in each trial and triumph with the aid of her caring husband and three children. She uses these core foundations and lessons to show you the light at the end of the tunnel and rather how to create your own light. ◊
