KBB welcomes back Justina Page, founder of the The Amos House of Faith benefiting burn victims, as she signs The Circle of Fire. Justina also shares her message: "Through the depths of tragedy I discovered that hope is the heartbeat of survival. My message to you is simply this: No matter what kind of trouble or pain you are dealing with, there is a way to rebound. You can stand on top of your circumstances."
Being a burn survivor herself as well as the mother of burn survivors, she has experienced all the stages of trauma a burn patient faces and is uniquely qualified to deal with these problems. She has been trained as a SOAR (Survivors Offering Assistance and Recovery) trainer, coordinator, and peer supporter. This coupled with her work at the John S. Dunn Sr. Burn Center at Memorial Hermann Hospital, Shriner’s Hospital in Galveston, and the Phoenix Society, gives her a truly unique understanding of how to teach, help, and inspire others.
In the early hours of March 7, 1999, Justina Page’s life changed forever when a four alarm house fire ravaged and destroyed her family’s home. In the aftermath, in addition to the heartbreaking loss of one of her 22-month-old twin boys, Justina and her husband had to cope with the physical injuries to both her and her surviving son.
The Circle of Fire chronicles the author’s journey through overcoming the devastating consequences of this catastrophic event. Justina’s is a journey of discovering that personal tragedy is not a life sentence to despair, anger, and continual pain and suffering. Instead, it is a discovery of how something positive can be salvaged from every agonizing experience, even when your faith has truly been tried by fire.
