Join Jalene E. Murphy as she launches her first book ~ Modern Day Courage!

Modern Day Courage is a collection of short stories written from the heart.  They are true, intimate and contemporary, describing an emotional journey that has led to an authentic, meaningful life. On this very personal pilgrimage, Jalene overcomes life’s obstacles, mental health, the stigma of divorce; pervasive perfectionism; and the tyranny of Catholic Church guilt and shame.

She tackles with grace and wisdom the challenges of sexual affirmation, self-love, trauma and divorce while highlighting the power of courage, inner strength determination and hope. Jalene is an author and mental health advocate and believes mental health is our 21st-century final frontier which must be compassionately faced together.

Let’s raise awareness, support, and funds for the Mental Health Foundation!
