READ CONTENT |
Judy Shepps Battle has been writing for nearly a half-century and offers a sample of her poetry, meditations, newspaper columns, articles on spirituality and addiction, and excerpts from her very special book on adolescent suicide.
Honoring Elizabeth is a set of poems written for Elizabeth Kreychik, M.D., who committed suicide in October 1997 at the age of 33. More than mourning a lost lover, Honoring Elizabeth celebrates a cherished relationship and served as an important grieving tool. (A collection of these and other poems, titled "Seven Months," is available at a fee from the author.)
Tribal Images represents a sampling of just-for-today meditations that honor spirit as it exists in our day-to-day life. A collection of these and other Tribal Images is available at a fee from the author.
Kids and Community is a social-commentary column that is published bi-weekly in a major newspaper in Princeton, N.J. A collection of these columns will soon be available for purchase.
Spirituality, codependency, addiction, and recovery are highlighted in short articles by the author. Topical anthologies are available for purchase upon request.
Almost Forever tells the true and nearly tragic story of a suicide attempt by the author's adolescent son, and its impact on his family. Seen through the eyes of his mother, who was a practicing therapist at the time, the author has written a story of hope and growth. The opening chapters of this special book are online. The entire book may be ordered directly from the author.
