Michele was a 32-year-old successful school principal and married mother of two, when she woke up one morning and could no longer hear. Doctors could offer no explanation. She spent frustrating years searching to make sense of the medical mystery. After three desperate years, doctors told Michele there was little chance of her hearing returning.
Even as she came to accept this bleak diagnosis, she never stopped looking for answers. Why would this suddenly happen to a fit young woman in her prime?
Then, one day, a colleague asked, “What is it, perhaps, that you don’t want to hear?”
This sparked intrigue and curiosity, and from that moment, she committed to a journey of self- discovery which led her back to the silences of her childhood. As Michele began to tune in to her inner voice, her well-being flourished. But her 12-year marriage began to unravel.
What began as a mission to regain her hearing became a journey of facing unspoken truths and breaking the silences that keep us trapped in the past.
This Kind of Silence is an inspirational story about gratitude for the small blessings in life, learning to listen again, and the quiet joys of stillness amidst the noise.
