Modern Day Courage
by Jalene E. Murphy

Modern Day Courage is a collection of short stories written from the heart. They are true, intimate, and contemporary, describing an emotional journey that has led to an authentic, meaningful life. On this very personal pilgrimage, Jalene overcomes life’s obstacles, mental health; the stigma of divorce; pervasive perfectionism; and the tyranny of Catholic Church guilt and shame. Readers facing similar trials will find value and support within these pages. Drawing from experience, Jalene has blazed a path for others. The author deals with the complexities of our modern world and her insights will speak to anyone looking for self-knowledge. She tackles with grace and wisdom the challenges of sexual affirmation, self-love, divorce, and mental health while highlighting the power of courage, inner strength, determination, and hope. This book is essential reading for anyone wishing to discover self. Doing so requires work — hard work — but the reward is inner peace. Your life will never be the same, and never better.

There's courage involved if you want to become Truth. - Rumi

Jalene E. Murphy’s Modern Day Courage results from prolonged seasons of change. After crossing the world’s oceans and travelling to all seven continents, her most challenging journey was of a short distance, moving from her fearful, thinking mind to listening to her loving, gentle heart. Born on the Canadian Prairies to a boisterous Irish/Ukrainian family, Jalene is a travel consultant, an adventurer to foreign lands, and an aunt to nine nieces and nephews. She also adores tending her strawberry patch while barefoot. This is Jalene’s first book.
