Motivational speaker and freelance writer Lysa Allman-Baldwin shares her debut book.

Lysa Allman-Baldwin’s almost 25 years of freelance and travel writing have led her on many amazing journeys. A few years ago, her travels crossed paths with a very personal, inner journey resulting in her new book, I Cried. And People Loved Me Anyway. In it, Allman-Baldwin teaches us how to overcome emotional trauma by living with passion, authenticity and purpose.

In her debut book, I Cried. And People Loved Me Anyway, motivational speaker and freelance writer Lysa Allman-Baldwin – a confident, outgoing, African-American woman who no one would have ever suspected was anything but content – describes how she almost checked out for good after a series of setbacks over a short period of time. After unearthing the subconscious facades she had built up since childhood, however, she discovered her life still had value and meaning despite any outer circumstances.

I Cried. And People Loved Me Anyway is a must-read for anyone grappling with everyday struggles that become overwhelming. Allman-Baldwin’s inner journey resonates with readers who have considered giving up during tough times, and her path through despair inspires hope. In the book, Allman-Baldwin stresses the importance of seeking help, self-forgiveness, spirituality – however one defines that – and unconditional love when trying to overcome emotional trauma. She teaches us how to live with passion, authenticity and purpose by treating every day as a gift.

Specifically, she discusses:
• How to tap into your inner child to unravel the old “tapes” that no longer serve you
• The power of forgiveness and unconditional love – for yourself and others
• Why every breakdown can be a breakthrough
• The importance of creating and maintaining community
• Finding your voice and inner strength through vulnerability
• The clarity, lessons and blessings found through adversity
