Post tenebras lux is a Latin phrase that means, "After darkness, light." That sounds nice and hopeful, unless the sun has long since set and you've been slogging through thick night for God knows how long, then it's just an annoying platitude in a dead language. Still, after hearing Marabel Morgan's story, you might just believe it's true.

Join Marabel Morgan on Steve Brown, Etc. as she talks about her memoir, Hard Beginning, Happy Ending. From growing up being emotionally abused by a "deeply troubled" mother who wouldn't get out of bed for six years to a wildly successful book and the cover of TIME Magazine, Marabel's life proves that faith (and therapy) can lift us from trauma to triumph.

Marabel Morgan is the author of the #1 best-selling Total Woman and was named one of the ten most influential women in America. She's also a gifted artist. Visit MarabelMorgan.Shutterfly.com to see her work.
