Maribeth Ditmars is an author, speaker, and blogger. Her writing journey began years ago when her 10-year old son, Chris, was diagnosed with leukemia and she kept a detailed journal. This eventually became her first book. Maribeth has also published a children’s book about cancer, and she has a brand-new book that was just released. It is a faith-based book about her family’s struggles with adversity and loss. She blogs about her life experiences in child-loss, grief, and addiction. With 16 years of recovery, Maribeth loves helping other women who are new in recovery. Maribeth also enjoys speaking and reminding others that laughter and tears are only a moment apart, but joy is eternal.
