Article on the Forked River Gazette, There is Hope After Suicide here.

“In her book, Hope after Suicide, Wendy Parmley invites the reader beyond the public square of opinion and perception giving them a personal and vulnerable glimpse of her encounters with suicide. In her memoir, Wendy gives voice to individuals and families who share her cultural and religious perspective dealing with this emotionally charged subject. Having served as a Police Chaplain for many years in multiple states, her story has a familiar tone and rhythm. There is no question that suicide and suicidal thoughts have led people through some very dark and seemingly hopeless moments which are difficult to understand unless you have personally faced suicide. Regardless of your personal experiences, you will have your perceptions on this subject challenged and expanded. Wendy enables the reader to not only share her journey, but also her hope.”
—Chaplain Dean L. Jackson, Provo Police Department

“Enduring the pain of losing a loved one is one of life’s most difficult trials. When that loss comes because of suicide, the pain and grief take on an entirely different persona. In her book, Wendy Parmley opens her heart to share her own story of loss to suicide. I felt privileged to read this book and to have been granted a view of her journey from despair & pain to hope & healing. There is something for everyone to relate to and to learn from in this beautifully told story of a girl, a woman, a mother, trying to make peace with the past and the present.”
—Melissa Pahl, nurse educator

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! I have not experienced the loss to suicide with immediate family or friends, but the book was very personal and I felt I could understand the feelings of sadness and devastation that occur with this sickness. Wendy Parmley is a gifted writer who can bring the reader through the feelings of despair, loneliness and sadness of suicide and then give the reader the feeling of hope and peace that can occur for those who suffer. I highly recommend this book to all who want healing or understanding of this disease.”
—Janelle Stopa, Orem, UT

“We all have secrets of some sort and Wendy Parmley has bravely shared a very private one in this book. In doing so, she lends courage to those of us who are wrestling with our own past. Her writing is engaging and fresh but it is the story itself that speaks to my soul. Her journey to face her past can give readers hope for their own healing. I loved this book and am better for having read it.”
—Jennifer Pollei, friend, Orem, UT
