Coast Diversity Speaker Pens Inspirational Book

Phyllis Thompson has written a book titled "Joy Comes in the Morning". In it, she shares her personal experiences in dealing with grief, loss and emotional despair.

Thompson's motivation came after she lost her father three years ago in a tragic car accident. She says the book tells readers how to survive -- emotionally and spiritually.  She says the book offers hope for anyone who has suffered a loss or has severed a relationship, either personally or professionally.

Thompson says "I hope the book will serve as some sort of encouragement for people, especially teens. That way, we can avoid having our teenagers decide they'd rather live a life of destruction or commit suicide, rather than face the adversities that we have to deal with on a daily basis".

"Joy Comes in the Morning" is available at Lynda G's Beauty Salon in Biloxi and Marshall's Bookstore in Gulfport. Each book costs $12.00.
