“I am so excited about this journey,” remarked Susan Lynn Major Feb. 5 as she addressed those who had come to her book signing. “Today is special because I get to present this book to my CBA family.”

Major, an inspirational speaker, retreat facilitator, author and Christian Brothers Academy teacher, marked the release of her new book with a signing at the school.

Major’s book, Joyful Journeys: Sacred Pauses with God (Divine Phoenix), was released Jan. 11. Major said writing the book was therapeutic for her during her illness. Major was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer in 2009 when she was 39 years old. “I felt inspired,” said Major. “When I sat down to write, I was in God’s hands. And, I received strength from my family and community to keep going.”

The work, a compilation of reflections she wrote over the years, was put into book form four years ago.
