Author Karen Raffa Shares Her Journey from Grief to God In “How A Gray Seed Became A Peace Lily”

About roughly seven years ago, Karen Raffa was on the edge. After a month long battle with cancer, Raffa’s spouse, Shirl, passed away. For somebody who had long struggled with everything from bipolar disorder to depression, the ordeal stripped away all of Raffa’s reason to live. Yet, by some miracle, suicide was ultimately averted. Raffa shares the details behind this slow and painful yet powerful transformation in a book titled “How a Gray Seed Became a Peace Lily.”

“This book is about regaining purpose after the most devastating losses in my life.”

The year 2016 was not merely the worst year in Karen Raffa’s life. It was the start of its worst period that went on for another year and a half. Raffa would then also be forced to endure the loss of several other family members, worsen a number of terrible mental health struggles before finally brought to the edge of suicide.

Despite this, something intervened that kept Raffa from pushing through and transformed the pain into a personal journey of faith. Readers can now learn about Raffa’s journey in the form of a memoir titled How a Gray Seed Became a Peace Lily.

It began when Shirl, Raffa’s spouse, was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Despite the best efforts of just about everybody (doctors, relatives, friends), Shirl succumbed to her illness just roughly a month into her treatments.

What made her death particularly devastating was that she was perhaps the brightest light in Raffa’s life. Her death kicked off a mental health chain reaction that exacerbated her spouse’s bipolar disorder and depression as well as barely manageable financial anxiety.

Yet, while the book regularly takes readers into some very dark places, Raffa does not hesitate to proclaim that it was a newfound strength in Christian faith that ultimately triumphed against repeated suicidal episodes. This faith led to a discovery of newfound purpose as well as reinvigorated understanding of life as a precious gift.

Karen Raffa’s How a Gray Seed Became a Peace Lily is a book mainly intended to give an honest journey through life’s lowest points while also offering a way to find inspiration and hope from beyond. The book is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
