Divorce hits people on a different level. While it has been known to leave many feeling deeply embittered, a person can also use the process to become better. Ultimately, it will show you what you’re made of.
For Keith Edwards, closing the chapter on his marriage meant starting a new one by writing a children’s book, ‘The Shine.’
“It’s an uplifting story. The message teaches people that shine comes from within each one of us,” he says. “It’s about being able to change the outlook on things and how you feel is up to you.”
As Edwards began writing his book around the same time he got married 10 years ago, unbeknownst to him, it would come full circle.
“In all actuality, it probably took me four months to draw. I worked on it a little bit at a time,” he says. “I got away from it and came back to it.”
