We Are All Fireflies - Finding Your Light in the Darkness
Travis M White
Travis M White is a soul on fire. Through his coaching, writing, and speaking, he helps individuals, families, and groups discover and overcome limiting beliefs and destructive internal narratives keeping them from experiencing their best life. Travis wrestled with finding himself for much of his life as he secretly dealt with the effects of childhood sexual abuse. The fear and shame of believing he was worthless and unlovable resulted in struggles with drugs and alcohol, a suicide attempt, and poor choices that would test the limits of his relationships with others, as well as his own self-belief. Today, Travis lives a joyful and transformed life as he uses his experience and training to help others master their own internal narratives. His desire is that the work he does will help others overcome the bondage of past pain and trauma while avoiding the many pitfalls he endured. He, and his wife Regenea, live in East Texas, where they enjoy a thriving coaching practice. When not working with others they enjoy spending time with their adult children, Amanda, and Joshua, their many pets, and the countless people they are blessed to call friends.
WHAT IF YOU DISCOVERED THAT YOU HAD MORE POWER THAN YOU EVER IMAGINED FOR EMBRACING THE LIFE YOU LONG FOR? Words create worlds. Whether it is the mom speaking to her child, the speaker motivating a crowd, or the voice inside our own heads, words greatly influence how we see ourselves and the world around us. For much of his life, Travis secretly battled with the destructive narratives born out of childhood sexual abuse. Living under the weight of believing in words like worthless and unlovable, he struggled to embrace joy and peace while battling debilitating anxiety, substance abuse, a suicide attempt, and, what he calls, a series of painful train wrecks of poor choices. We Are All Fireflies is about: -awakening to the narrative, or story, we all carry inside us. -learning to defeat destructive and limiting beliefs born out of past trauma. -finding our true selves and learning to believe in, and embrace, our best life. YOU CARRY ALL THE LIGHT YOU WILL EVER NEED TO ILLUMINATE ALL THE DARKNESS YOU WILL EVER FACE. Unlike a lot of personal growth and self-help books, Travis does not paint the steps of his journey as easy or without struggle. Rather, he goes into detail as he shares the internal battle with fear, shame, and anxiety that plagued him for much of his life. With an inspiring level of vulnerability, you will follow Travis, not only on the path that led to his ultimate freedom and healing, but through the missteps and mistakes he made along the way. He truly shines a light into his darkness in hopes that others may endure less pain and setback in their own journeys.

Book cover type
Looking for awe-inspiring. Literal mixed with a little ethereal. I have a file I can send of a silhouetted boy holding a jar of fireflies (I do not have rights to the photo, but can be used as a guide. I picture something like that but maybe superimposed on a silhouette/figure of an adult and now the light is coming from his heart/center. I am open to designers suggestions for fonts- I do like a Lord of the Rings inspired one (called Ringbearer) for the title.
What to avoid
No. I am open
