“Dying to Make a Difference” is a story about the power we each hold to learn from our experience after the death of a loved one.
With honesty and humor, Mary's unexpected journey to heed life's call after her mother's death paints a picture of the possibilities and the pitfalls, including a vision of what's possible for our future when we each make the difference we are uniquely called to make — living and dying well.
