Shattered Together

A Mother’s Journey From Grief to Belief

Your guide to healing through the loss of a loved one

By Cathleen Elle

When I lost my 19-year-old son, Logan, suddenly and unexpectedly to suicide, my life was shattered. A single mom who had fought to build a successful career in business, politics, and government over the course of more than two decades, I watched my world crumble into disarray and despair.

At a crossroads, I realized that I had a choice to make: I could remain a broken shell of a person, cloaked in guilt, shame, and regret, or I could begin to heal, and learn how to live again.

Part unflinching memoir, part inspirational guidebook, Shattered Together is the story of how I chose to become whole by uncovering my path through the trauma of my son’s passing. From grief to faith, from shame to understanding, from regret to gratitude, I share the hard-won lessons I’ve learned on my healing odyssey, while also revealing the practices and tools I’ve used to release my pain, find my purpose, and create a life of joy, connection, and fulfillment.

It is my sincere hope that this book will provide you with encouragement, comfort, and companionship as you begin your own healing journey.

Love and light,

“Cathleen’s story is about resiliency and perseverance, inspiration and empowerment, courage and vulnerability. It’s about how we keep moving forward through our heartache and pain, and how we learn to love ourselves in the darkness. In Shattered Together, Cathleen shows us that not only do we have the power to endure any and all losses, but we have the ability to come out on the other side of them stronger, more loving, more compassionate, and more forgiving.”

Shattered Together is a powerfully honest book. Cathleen Elle’s willingness to share her raw and intimate times following the loss of her son carries you along with her into healing. If you have experienced the death of a loved one or you work with people who have, I highly recommend this book.”

“A masterpiece of emotional processing. Cathleen’s beautiful healing journey will touch you, inspire you, move you, and help you heal. Her willingness to be vulnerable is a true gift to the reader. As I unwrapped the gift, I cried with sadness, I cried with joy, I cried with love. I learned so much about loss and recovery and I learned things I didn’t know about my own losses large and small. Take a gentle step into Shattered Together in whatever way feels right to you and, as incongruent with grief as it sounds, enjoy.”
