Big Shoes: A Young Widowed Mother's Memoir is not just a story of death and loss, it is about prevailing and finding true happiness, not in spite of what happens to us but because of what happens to us.

All profits from the sale of Big Shoes benefit The DON'T WAIT Project®.

In every community, there are people who are part of history—soldiers who fought in wars, entrepreneurs during economic hardships, survivors of illness before there were cures, and husbands and wives who lost great love, only to find it a second time.

The DON'T WAIT History Project™, in partnership with DWP Board Advisor Melissa Knott and Eastmont High School, uses innovation and technology through in-depth interviews, photographs, video, print and social media to bridge the gap between youth and seniors by telling stories significant to the history of people in the Wenatchee Valley.

Each interview is conducted with the participation of local broadcast media and journalism students who are responsible for helping capture the stories on film—a unique opportunity for our youth to reach out and discover the stories of our local seniors.
