A Journey of Resilience and Reconciliation

Is there a story inside of you that you just know would help you heal if you let it out? Or perhaps it would help others heal? Here’s your inspiration to put it out there! Ronit Plank never planned to write a memoir. However, she realized that her story’s too good to keep to herself. This week, Heather talks with Ronit about her shockingly beautiful, recently-published memoir, When She Comes Back, where she details her tumultuous childhood, being abandoned by the most important person in her life, her mother, and the lessons she learned by revisiting her past.


  • Vulnerability is strength.
  • Our memories are valuable but unreliable. Memoirs offer truth by way of perspective—That is, they tell the truth of how their author felt.
  • Telling our story is one of the most empowering and cathartic processes we can undergo.

Each and everyday around the globe, people are showing up for themselves and making a difference in the lives of others with their courageous journeys. Those stories are important to showing others that anything is possible.

If your story is one of acknowledging your fears, being intentional and showing up for yourself even when everything felt like so much, then, I want to share your story.
