Twin Turbulence: What happened when twins happened

Sponsored guest article written by: Cass Comerford

Summer has arrived, and with it comes some time to relax and pick up a book or two. Today I’d like to share with you a book from local author and blogger Kristin Myers.

Kristin wrote the book Twin Turbulence: What happened when twins happened (found on Amazon) in the midst of facing her husband’s cancer diagnosis, finding out she was expecting twins, and then tackling the triumphs and struggles of raising a young family. 

I can make you a few promises in reading this book:
  1. You will not want to put it down.
  2. You will be drawn into the way Kristin (and her entire family) handle challenges and how in the re-telling of the stories you go from laughing in one moment and feeling the grave nature of a situation in the next (you’ll know when you get to this part and please find me on Twitter and tell me I am not alone on this.)
  3. You’ll want to read her blog at kristin-myers.com- seriously her post on their pet chinchilla had me rolling

Favorite paragraph from the book:

“Our twin daughters have weathered every storm that has come their way.  While it seemed at times the rain would never stop pouring, they continued to float light-heartedly.  In the moments that I prayed for sunshine, they were busy searching for any and all rainbows.”

More about the book:
The story starts in 2004 when journaling became first-time author Kristin Myers' outlet. This is not a handbook - it's a labor of love. While reading you will nod, laugh and empathize with Kristin as a woman, as a parent, as a wife, as the mother of twins (which is a completely different ballgame) and as part of a team facing a cancer diagnosis. These are the honest reactions to the constant, unexpected nature of life that was magnified by twins. The trials and errors, the ups and downs, and the in-betweens. This is the truth of living through the rough parts while searching for any and all silver linings.
