Burn Victim Now Burns Brighter

Her sisters died in the house fire; the only reason she lived 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 and today would be called a victim of PTSD.

Murphy’s childhood was jolted again when her step-father died in a logging accident a few years later and culminates in the murder of her mother. The book follows Cockrum-Murphy’s life from those tragedies forward to today. In her new book, she shares the poignant story of her experiences and the power of questioning, seeking, studying, and living in hope 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. 

Instead of giving in to family dysfunction she moved beyond the events of the past and now writes about dealing with trauma, loss, abuse, family alcoholism and shows there is a way to happiness. Interwoven as she recounts the events are actions, steps, tools, even a reading and movie list to help anyone who has felt stuck due trauma move forward from suffering and victimization into a spiritual life filled with joy and love. Her story and insights model hope, action and success. 

“A must read for anyone seeking to shift their emotional pain to inner peace and emotional freedom.”
– Connie M. Leach, Ed.D. Career and Life Coach, Author of 8 books 

“This is the book to show everyone that the past can’t hold you down, that trauma can be overcome.”
– MJ Caldwell, R.N.
