How Do You Cope with Shock, Debilitating Loss, or Fear?

How do you cope with shock or fear? Do you have the inner strength when you feel like there is none left? Faith Wilcox was able to find moments that were good – even when her daughter was near the end of her life and as a mother, she was shredded apart by the grief of losing her daughter, her marriage, and life as she knew it.

Faith Wilcox

Faith Fuller Wilcox believes that self-expression through writing leads to healing. Her writing is reflective of a growing body of medical research about 'narrative identity,' which illuminates that how we make sense of what happens to us and the meaning we give to experiences beyond our control directly impacts our physical and psychological outcomes. 

Faith learned this firsthand when her 13-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, was diagnosed with rare bone cancer that took her life. 

Faith also leads a journal writing program at a pediatric hospital for patients and their families designed to allow participants the opportunity to express themselves, alleviate stress, celebrate victories, and honor their grief. 

In her interview, Faith shares how she went from a mother in despair to a mother who had hope for the future. Through sharing her story, especially to those who have suffered a great loss, she wants you to know that life can continue after grieving and even be good. We can learn to live with sadness and joy side-by-side.  

Coping with loss


Hope Is a Bright Star is the story of a mother’s journey from shock and fear at her young daughter’s cancer diagnosis, to anguish and despair at her death just a year later and, finally, to peace and acceptance of her new life.

When 13-year-old Elizabeth is diagnosed with rare bone cancer, Faith is in awe of her courageous child, who faces her plight straight on and inspires all who meet her. Despite an army of medical professionals who provide innovative care for Elizabeth, she dies, and Faith and her surviving daughter, Olivia, are thrown into a maelstrom of grief. They find unexpected comfort in the arms of their family, friends, and community, but Faith faces another shock when she has her own cancer diagnosis while navigating the uncharted waters of a life she never expected. In time, Faith discovers moments and places of comfort and peace, and she slowly changes from a mother in despair to a woman with hope for the future. 

At turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, Hope Is a Bright Star reveals how abiding love can heal a family.

Hope Is a Bright Star made the ‘long list’ for the category Overcoming Adversity for the 2021 Chanticleer International Book Awards. 


Facing Into the Wind - A Mother's Healing After the Death of her Child is a collection of poems written for parents and families who are coping with the death of a child. The poems are written about Elizabeth, her thirteen-year-old child, who battles a rare form of bone cancer, and her mother, Faith,  who struggles to survive after her daughter’s death.

Drawing upon metaphors with the natural world,  Faith remembers the transcending wisdom imparted by her dying daughter, healing Faith’s brokenness and awakening her strength to reach out and comfort others who are suffering.

Would You Like Clear Steps on How to Overcome Anxiety?

In 2009, in spite of a highly successful international marketing career, David Stone worried himself into homelessness. Then, fed up with the fear, anxiety, and self-doubt that got in the way of the life he wanted to live he set out to find a better way. Now he guides others to live fearlessly through books, workshops, keynotes and blogs.

"As long as you believe your problems is someone else's fault, then YOUR situation is in THEIR hands."

What are the biggest obstacles that keep us from achieving our highest potential? David Stone firmly believes that your parachute cannot open until you jump out of the plane.  

David Stone

In this interview, David shares:

  • The REAL story on worry, anxiety, and self-doubt (Hint: they are not “facts of life.”)

  • We have all been trained and conditioned to worry

  • You CAN choose to opt-out of anxiety

  • How to stop worrying about anything. 

  • How to make your worry-free life permanent.

Do You Want to Live Fearlessly?

What is i-fearless?

i-fearless is a website and community where smart, self-aware people leave worry, anxiety and self-doubt behind and take courageous control of their lives.

i-fearless is for:

  • Intelligent individuals who choose to overcome anxiety without medication

  • Rational, self-aware people who want to control their fears and negative thinking and take control of their lives.

i-fearless is also for:

  • High-performing businesses that want to remove the fears and self-doubts that limit success

  • Ambitious teams who recognize that collective anxiety can be a roadblock to success

In the fall of 2009, at the age of 55, author David A. Stone reached the conclusion that anxiety, worry, and self-doubt were useless mental states. They felt awful, never improved the situation, depleted his health, and were roadblocks to achievement. So he decided to remove them from his life.

The list of things about which we worry is long and includes illness, financial ruin, loneliness and the opinions of others as just a few of the biggies. We also worry about paying the phone bill next month, whether that mole on your arm is getting any bigger, why my friend hasn’t liked my Instagram post, and what your mother will say if you go to Vegas with that guy for the weekend.

But what if you could deal with those, plus all the other challenges that come your way without the worry and anxiety? What would you do if you weren’t afraid? If you weren’t afraid to try, to fail, to be judged, to look foolish, and yes, even to succeed?
David Stone

Worry and anxiety are rampant. They feel terrible, degrade health, finances, relationships, and quality of life without ever improving the situation. David A. Stone writes that they do not have to be a fact of life and are, in fact, unconscious mental and emotional choices that have become habits that can be eliminated. 

This book gives readers practical steps to overcome fear, anxiety and worry, replacing those mental habits with better, more constructive ones, leading to peace of mind and happier life.

The names and identities of all those involved have been absolutely omitted and will never see the light of day unless the person or persons involved in such acts wish to come forth on their own.

These stories have been told by those who were there or possibly second-hand. Judge for yourself what is true and what is quite possibly an extreme exaggeration. Some of the tellings of these stories have been spiced up and a certain amount of dramatic license has occurred, but nothing to take away from the very real stories themselves. For my part, I know some of these to be absolutely true. I was there...

Around the world, virtually every weekend, at hotels, colleges, and conventions centers, thousands of people get together to share a wondrous common bond - a love of all things Anime, Comics, Video Games, and Pop Culture.
