AUTHOR SHARES PERSONAL STRUGGLE WITH HEARING LOSS IN NEW BOOK
CrossRiver releases ‘Confessions of a Lip Reading Mom’ this week

(COLBY, Kan.) – As Shanna Groves held her newborn son, she should have reveled in the joys of motherhood. Instead, she was plagued by questions and fear. Something was wrong. The sounds she once took for granted — the doorbell, smoke alarms, baby cries — were gone, replaced by silence. Then the buzzing started. What was wrong with her and, more importantly, how could she care for her newborn son when she couldn’t even hear him cry?

In her new book, Confessions of a Lip Reading Mom, Shanna Groves shares her struggle to find God’s grace during her roller coaster ride of unexplained deafness. No matter the struggles you’re facing, Shanna’s honesty in sharing her emotional battle with a progressive hearing loss diagnosis, will inspire you to reach out for your heavenly Father’s hand…and hang on tight.

“Shanna dives deep into her heart and opens up her thoughts on her journey through life and loss,” says Karen Putz, author of The Parenting Journey, Raising Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children. “Shanna takes a raw, honest look at the impact of becoming deaf and the long road to acceptance. The confessions she reveals will have you nodding along with a smile and a laugh, for on a very human level, you will relate.”

Confessions of a Lip Reading Mom, released by CrossRiver Media, will hit local and online bookstores on March 22. It is the second book for Ms. Groves. Her first, Lip Reader was released in 2009. She is also a speaker and freelance writer, having written for Hearing Loss Magazine, HealthyHearing.com, The Kansas City Star, MOMSense magazine and a Cup of Comfort books. Ms. Groves is a graduate of the University of Sciences and Arts of Okalahoma where she earned a communications degree. She also writes extensively about being a hard of hearing parent on her blog, LipreadingMom.com.
