"My Missing Peace is an incredibly well written book. As I read through the chapters, one word kept coming to mind, the word COURAGE. The courage to allow us a glimpse into your life, to overcome the ordeals and setbacks, to keep fighting for you and your son and the courage to keep going through the darkness until you got to the other side. This book will inspire and give anyone who reads it, the tools to take anything life throws at them and say "I have the COURAGE to overcome."

"What a life journey JoJo has been on and to articulate each moment with intent and compassion was beautiful to read. Her vulnerability to speak from the heart is evident in every word that is written. Her journey shows that if we follow a course and do the necessary work on ourselves we all have the power to change our circumstance and our intentions. Well done JoJo you are truly an inspiration and you have provided us all a path to turn to."

"Some chapters are brief and humorous, while others provide solace and reflection. Several are worth reading twice, and selfishly I wanted to hear more. I found a new friend who brought me knowledge and comfort through her personal rebirth. My "Missing Peace" is the lighthouse that ensures a safe space to feel sadness, remorse, pain, and anger but also joy, laughter, and love…Thank you JoJo, I appreciate the journey."
