Her name is Nora Dammit! A Grandmothers journey through the Life and Death of her Grandchild.

Her name is Nora Dammit!  A Grandmothers journey through the Life and Death of her Grandchild.

Imagine a paradigm shift brought on by the loss of a baby girl. Today’s guest, Linda Barbour, went through just that and her second wind story is like no other.

Linda was a schoolteacher for 16 years of AP biology and anatomy. Previously a researcher of agriculture for UGA, she is now a Chinese herbalist and acupuncturist. She will explain how it was going from the Eastern way of thinking to the Western way of healing.

This wonderful woman is a wife of 43 years, a sister with three brothers, and a mother of two. She is also a grandmother of four, three of which are living.

All of these experiences tie together Linda's second wind. Some might say her second wind came when she wrote her book, “510 Candles: The Illuminations of Nora Lorraine”. However, the birth of Nora and her short life changed Linda's life forever.
