TSM 16/09 LIVING HOPE – with Lynne Cockrum-Murphy

Their Story Matter with Sara Troy and her guest Lynne Cockrum-Murphy aired from March 1st onwards


The only reason she survived the house fire is her father carried her out first before running back in for her sisters where they all perished. Lynne Cockrum-Murphy was three years old and living in an idyllic family in Northern California. Raised by a mother whose life was shattered by the tragedy, Lynne’s childhood was jolted again when her stepfather died in a logging accident a few

years later and culminates in the murder of her mother years later. That could have been the end of any hope of happiness, but it wasn’t. Living Hope follows her life from those tragedies forward to today.

Sisters dead, Father dead and mother murdered.

With a transcendent spirit that knew there must be something better ahead, she kept searching for answers and with much time, trial and error, wise teachers, communal support, deep research and reading, and personal introspection, she ultimately triumphed over her pain and suffering, finding the steps to a joyful, deeply fulfilling life that includes a loving partner and a calling to help others. It’s those steps she interweaves in Living Hope as she tells her own remarkable story that takes her from surviving to thriving.

Lynne’s common sense and compassion are evident throughout Living Hope, as she guides people with actions, steps, tools, even a reading, and movie list to help them achieve the happiness and joy that changed her life. Hers is a model of hope, action, and success that a joyful life is possible no matter how heartbreaking the past. The message in her book addresses the basic needs of the 8 million Americans who suffer from PTSD.

In her case, instead of giving into family dysfunction, she moved beyond the events of the past and writes about dealing with trauma, loss, abuse, family alcoholism and shows there is a way to inner peace.

Living Hope is critically acclaimed by experts, ministers, coaches and therapists.  Rapid sales of the book show the deep need and the enthusiastic response from people looking for a way out of depression, fear and a sense of doom.
