BY BETH CHILDRESS
Beauty In The Breakdown
I had secrets…so many secrets…and they were corroding my inner being. Who can live in so much shame that you are constantly hiding behind the masks you construct; masks that start as a mere screen to defuse your inner pain, then they grow thicker until you have no idea who you really are. Every day then becomes a masquerade.
Find the courage and strength to step outside of your own hideaways and read Beauty in the Breakdown today!
Beth Childress, a native of Greenville, South Carolina, is a high school teacher, a far too loyal and obnoxious Clemson University football fan and the author of her first book, A Grief Uncorked.
She is also a proud parent of her adopted cat, Peeks.
Beauty in the Breakdown
This book is about hope – real hope – not only for me but also for you, drawing from a mentor of mine whose insights and discernment about mental health – and humans – reach far beyond the offers
of any antidepressant, hot yoga class, cognitive behavior therapy, and/or counselor.
A Grief Uncorked
This book is about a combination of experiences, including dark years where I hid in secret closets to shut the world out in my inexplicable despair, as well as a picture for the world to see my Daddy that they missed.
Drafting a new book soon…
I am always writing and working on new creative ideas for short stories, books and blogs. Stay tuned!
I could not put this book down. Vulnerable, raw, real, hopeful, heartbreaking and honest. READ THIS BOOK! If it’s not about you, it’s about someone next to you.

In her book Beauty in the Breakdown, Beth’s writing style reminds me of Donald Miller’s Blue Like Jazz.

Like giving light to the blind, Beth has given those that are afraid to speak out a voice of chance and change.
