“As a mom, you have no book that tells you the right way to take care of your kids through bad times,” says Bonnie Elozory, mother of four.
For seven years, the Elozory family weathered a relentless streak of bad luck. With no instructions on how to pull her family out of the muck, Bonnie got creative. When her husband nudged Bonnie to rekindle her dream to hike the Appalachian Trail, Bonnie latched on to the idea. And decided to take the kids.
“Oh my gosh,” Bonnie remembers thinking, “this is going to save our lives.”
