Dreams in the Attic

I tried to cry as silently as possible — I’m good at it. My grandmother turned to me and whispered: “We don’t get to choose”

"The story of Elisheva Bulow — who chose to marry a physically imperfect person because she respected his character and who he wanted to be — was the most inspiring story I have ever read… Please keep the LifeLines stories coming; reading about the challenges people face and how they change and grow as a result, is my personal mussar dose for the week."

"I look forward to reading the diary serial by Shoshana Schwartz each week. I’m an addict who is currently in rehab and it’s so, so challenging. I’m a young girl and I’m here to change my life, to move on and move forward. Thank you for the awareness you create about addictions. Most people don’t understand me or addiction and I’m so grateful that your serial tells people a bit about how therapy and rehab works. It is also very encouraging for me to read while I do my work in rehab. Thank you!"
