Growing Wings

| October 1, 2017


“What a shock! As I started writing, things took a radical turn. I started digging. I started searching. I started waking up and telling the truth.”

Nationally known artist Kristen Jongen thought she had overcome life’s toughest hurdles. A mother of three, Kristen believed she was in a stable marriage, and financially secure. Until one day, her world exploded and she was left to raise her family on her own and forced to embark on a new career. “Growing Wings” is Jongen’s artistic and literary chronicle of her journey back from the depths of despair and into an unexpected, fulfilling new life as an entrepreneur, artist and mother.

“Growing Wings” will help anyone going through one of life’s many transitions. Jongen writes with brutal yet inspirational honesty about the ups and downs of living, losing, and facing the unexpected. A lively, humorous and inspiring read, the book contains Jongen’s artistic representations of each phase of her journey. “Growing Wings” is an excellent example of how the human spirit must survive and thrive even in the darkest times.
