Hi, my name is Shawn Elliot Russell! (this is 8 y.o. me)
In 2013, I experienced a lot of fear and anxiety. It was hard to leave my house or even eat food sometimes. I felt angry, sad, and frustrated.
And then I learned a secret to feeling better: Being Still. Practicing being still helped me to find peace and gave me the freedom to do the things I wanted to do again.
So, in 2015, I wrote 'Be Still, Little Tree, Be Still' as a way to share what I learned with others who might be going through a lot of fear and anxiety too.Click Here to Listen to the Story
4 years later, the book was in the local Barnes & Noble and I even had a chance to give a TEDx talk about how to get through the storms of life.Click Here to see the TEDx talk.
