Lark Dean Galley
On March 21, 2019, Lark experienced a devastating loss—the unexpected suicide of her 19-year-old son. Having already endured her father’s suicide five years earlier, this second death hit especially hard. All expectations for the future were erased. Everything became difficult. Even breathing felt like a conscious decision.
This is the story of her raw and painful journey through despair and grief; it is standing on the brink of an abyss ready to pitch into the darkness and making the very difficult decision to step away from the edge. Lark shares how this decision to use her loss to bless the lives of others helped her to heal from both her son’s and father’s suicides.
It is her desire to instill hope in those who wonder how, or even if, they can go on.
Praise for Learning to Breathe Again
As a parent, Lark’s book gave me much to think about. She doesn’t sugar coat their relationships, and her brutal honesty and vulnerability help the reader understand the heart of the family members. I have a son who is just five months older than Christian. Lark’s hard-won insights hit home and helped me come to needed realizations. I’m asking my husband to read the book, as well. I genuinely believe Christian’s story and his parents’ honest struggles will improve relationships and save lives.

I highly recommend you read this book with your spouse and discuss the ideas and topics of the book with your children. You will find the book drives home the lessons of forgiveness, purpose, conversation, and parenting in a clear voice without ego of the author, but rather an honest loving account of the value of each human soul.”

This was an extremely powerful message regarding the life and journey of Lark and her son, Christian. I appreciated the experiences Lark shares from her childhood and family dynamics that she references to bring perspective to her story. Her courage to be vulnerable with her relationship as a mother to her children, especially Christian, was and is a true testimony to her commitment to mental health awareness and suicide prevention. I recommend this book to all parents who have experienced the loss of a child and are trying to reconcile how they move forward with hope and peace.

In my research, I connected with Dr. Paul Jenkins, Ph.D. Psychology. I loved his positive approach to dealing with hard topics. I also felt his parenting advice to be in line with what I have learned.
Dr. Paul offers some great online resources for parents, and those who struggle with their mental health.
