Jennifer has written an inspiring and empowering book on overcoming trauma. She is a living example of how it is possible to heal naturally from trauma and go from merely surviving to thriving in life. Jennifer’s wisdom and insights will help you on your journey of healing trauma and to move forward and live a life you love.” —Jack Canfield, co-creator of the #1 New York Times bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series and author of The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be
“Shattered is perhaps one of the most important books a person suffering from trauma could ever read. This book is about rising above trauma, discovering who you are along the way, and learning how to create a life you love! Jennifer Kauffman inspires, encourages, and empowers us to realize that no matter how difficult life can be at times, it is possible to rise above like a phoenix rising from the ashes. Shattered is a must-read book.” —Deborah Sandella, PhD, RN, award-winning psychotherapist, founder of the groundbreaking RIM method, and #1 international bestselling author of Goodbye, Hurt & Pain: 7 Simple Steps to Health, Love, and Success.
“Shattered is not only a gripping narrative of Jennifer’s experience being approximately 15 feet away from where the bomb exploded at the Boston Marathon finish line, but an even more gripping narrative of the trauma she endured living with survivor’s guilt and the painful scars that nobody could see. The miracle is that she was able to transform the trauma into a gift she has given to us all inside the pages of this amazing book.” —Debra Poneman, bestselling author, founder of Yes to Success, Inc., and cofounder of Your Year of Miracles, LLC
“Jennifer Kauffman’s Shattered is more than just a gripping true-life story. It is an informative and self-empowering presentation on the new science of behavioral epigenetics. Epigenetics reveals how images in the mind are translated by the brain into neurochemistry that, in turn, directly controls genetics and behavior. Jennifer’s engaging life story illuminates the science of how our thoughts, perceptions, and beliefs directly control our inner health and outer life experiences. Shattered’s story and insights offer a valuable opportunity to acquire the personal empowerment necessary to become the master of your fate rather than be the ‘victim’ of your life experiences.” —Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, cell biologist and lecturer, and internationally recognized leader in the “new” biology bridging the body-mind-spirit trinity. He is the bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, The Honeymoon Effect, and coauthor of Spontaneous Evolution.
