turtle soup is enough

In the poignant memoir, “Turtle Soup Is Enough,” the author navigates through the most challenging year of their life, a period marked by a devastating family tragedy. The narrative unfolds as a collection of essays, initially penned for a college course, unknowingly becoming a chronicle of the author’s existential struggle. The author’s faith, deeply rooted in familial bonds and the simple joys of life, is brutally tested when their younger brother suffers a life-altering accident. The family’s unconventional faith, found not in church sermons but in the mud-streaked jeans and shared laughter around a campfire, is shaken to its core. The author grapples with the seeming indifference of God as their world crumbles around them. Yet, in the midst of this turmoil, they discover a profound truth. Sometimes, it takes a shattering experience to break free from the lies we unknowingly believe. This memoir is a raw, humor-laced exploration of faith under fire, the triumph of hope, and the invaluable lessons learned along the journey.
