WASHINGTON - s4story -- The human spirit is immensely resilient with its ability to triumph over adversity. To offer a beacon of hope and solidarity and to remind readers that they are not alone in their struggles, Catherine Head Kirkley and five other storytellers have released Wounds to Wisdom: Voices of Hope, Healing and Redemption in the Face of Life's Challenges.

In Wounds to Wisdom, former educator and bestselling author Catherine Head Kirkley and five other inspirational storytellers become "personal growth transformers," guiding readers through their journeys of trauma to resilience. Delving into the raw emotions of each storyteller offers readers inspiration and courage. Those who have experienced trauma will discover their strength and gain insight into their capabilities to overcome and heal through tough times.

In the foreword, Vicki Rice Jackson, Executive Director of Coalition for Educational Partnerships, writes, "Wounds to Wisdom reads as a binding agent in a social setting, forging supportive connections between survivors. The personal growth transformers share how trauma includes a realization of one's capabilities and resilience and a greater sense of the purpose for life."
