About the Author


     Luannah has been a passionate writer since her youth writing her thoughts, experiences and poetry in her journals her entire life. She has written many articles on Personal Growth, Spirituality and Healing published in a local magazine that sparked her passion to write even more.

     Now she presents her first book sharing candidly her journey of personal healing and growth through a multitude of traumas and situations, that by all rights, had the potential to destroy her.

     Luannah now owns and operates a beautiful Healing Centre, Serenity By The Sea, on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada, where she now offers the healing techniques that helped her heal to other women looking to reclaim their heart and life back from trauma. 

     She is happily married, living with her husband and ten year old son.

Resilience, Grace and the Art of Showing Up is both an adventurous and uplifting book, sharing a powerful story of empowerment, driven by one woman’s determination to rise above the abuse and traumas that had impacted her.


Through opening her mind to life and new possibilities of perceiving, rather than staying stuck in the pain, she discovered many insights on how to rebuild her self-esteem, restore her joy and live her deepest dreams.


This is an inspiring story of courage and determination about overcoming so many obstacles and traumas to finally creating a life full of love and fulfillment, where the seemingly impossible became possible.


Through gleaning life wisdoms from the cultures she encountered in her travels around the world and her observations of Nature Luannah made the shift from victim to victor.


She enlightens the reader to explore the Power of Nature as a resource of wisdom and truth, as ally and healer, awakening us to our own innate resilience and capacity to re-create ourselves.


This book has the power & potential to change lives in beautiful and enriching ways.
