About this audiobook


Have you or a friend or loved one struggled with loss, abuse, addiction, low self-esteem, or even suicidal ideation? Then this book will ring true for you:

Dr. Liz’ Life Launch! Book One is a #1 Amazon International Best Seller in four categories. It chronicles the first 25 years of her life living in abusive environments, how she survived and ultimately found her way into the supportive and caring arms of 12-Step recovery programs. Along the way, she describes exactly how she survived the traumas of physical and sexual abuse, mental illness and suicidal ideation, grief and loss; as well as her struggles with sexual identity, bulimia, addiction, and more.

In her “How to” memoir, she offers her reader:

  • reflections on Prayer, Meditation and Life Lessons
  • a Self-Help Resources section
  • her daily regimen
  • links to therapies, books, programs, individuals and specific products

to help YOU not only survive, but thrive “beyond the WILDEST storms” of YOUR life!

This is Book One of a 2-book series. Life Launch! Book Two (coming soon) will reveal the struggles Dr. Liz overcame during the 2nd half of her life: the suicide of her husband, the death of her father, and being engaged at one time to a man who later became the Butcher of Brooklyn, to become a proud mom of her own teenager, a successful medical professional and college professor, and an international best-selling author.

I highly recommend this book. It is a shocking story where the authors trust is betrayed by her own abusive family, her innocence is stolen, and she is undermined at every turn. Yet she persists and prevails, she survives and she thrives, and she unbelievably overcomes the numerous roadblocks that were put in front of her. The author not only shares her story with courage but also reaches out to the reader that may be struggling with similar issues by including the steps she pursued to heal at the end of each chapter. This is a true self help book and a story that needs to be told and the author tells it with such grace.

Overcoming the Storms of your life...A great book that will inspire readers to keep going no matter what storms they've been through. Dr. Liz have gone through so much difficulties in life since her childhood, but her story has a great come back. Read this book and allow yourself to just be 'Wow' with her journey... and get inspired how she battled the challenges in her life and how the Hero in her was born. Additional information provided in the end that helps the readers have the tools they need to overcome their own battle.

A brave and poignant story! A grappling story of a survivor. This book has been written passionately from a place of vulnerability that shows the author’s courage. Great to see her voice come alive through every page of this book. Fellow travelers will find hope and healing, knowing they are not alone. She also points readers to how she survived. She shares tools(prayer, reflections and life lessons learned)that helped her come out on the other side of the dark tunnel. Worth the read!
