Bridget Bagley, a mother struggling with the grief of losing her son, Preston, who died after a head-on collision, creates a piece of jewelry the size of a business card to manage her grief healthily and productively and keep Preston’s spirit and legacy alive.
Bridget made 1,500 of Preston’s Charms and passed them to people or left them in places for people to find them. The people who received or found Preston’s Charm passed it from one person to another. Since Preston’s Charm debut in 2019, it has traveled and been found in every state in the USA, 15 different countries, and 4 islands.
In this book you’ll discover the spiritual power of Preston’s Charm and how it helped Bridget come to terms with Preston’s death and move forward with her life and also how Preston’s Charm inspired people, who received or found it, to practice empathy for Preston and Bridget and how it also helped them manage the grief of losing their Loved One more healthily and productively and move forward with their life.
