How to Survive Heartbreak and an Unbelievable Diagnosis about Your Baby


Crystal OlguĂ­n Duffy is a former high school teacher and consultant who is now an author, essayist and part-time elementary Spanish teacher.  She lives in Houston with her husband Ed, and their three little girls; Abby (5), Katie and Lauren (3) and yappy little Yorkie pup, Charlie. Her essays on parenting have appeared in Scary MommyMamapedia and Twiniversity.

Her Memoir, Twin to Twin, is her first book and was written during the span of 1,000 naps. She hopes that her story inspires men and women to have the strength and courage to stay positive and move forward through any type of adversity.

After two miscarriages, Crystal was ecstatic to hear that she was having twins until.....the doctors told her they may not survive and their condition was extremely rare.




As you listen to her story, you will be holding your breath wondering if she or the babies will make it through this ordeal.  Every moment is an eternity as Crystal is waiting for her unborn children to arrive and questioning what else could possibly go wrong.

How to Inspire Hope in the Dark Night of the Storm

Keri Fulmore is a Medical Intuitive who helps people connect to the root of their health and emotional blockages. Keri uses a blend of medical intuition, functional medicine, and nutrition to connect with her clients.  


Five years ago, Keri was bedridden with a big health crisis of body-wide nerve pain that attacked her overnight. I could barely get out of bed, let alone take care of my children.  It was one of the darkest storms of my life. 

I went through a lot of hopelessness in my health storm.  The pain I had in my body was a 10 out of 10.  Everything I did, required fighting back tears.  I remember lying in bed, the pain burning me like battery acid on my nerves, feeling exhausted, crying from the depths of my soul for help.  Praying for help.  I also remember feeling like there was no way out. That my prayers were not heard.  Medically, there was nothing wrong with me.  I often wondered how I could even get better if I didn’t know what was wrong.  I reached moments in the pain where I wished it could all be over.  I prayed for God to take me home, or show me a way.  I had reached my rock bottom.  Then she found a way.
