Jo herself has faced heartbreak, loss and disconnection. Jo has been through a difficult childhood, nervous breakdowns, abusive relationships, gambling addictions, coupled with grief and loss. She has been a single mum and faced homelessness. Despite all of these difficulties Jo has remained determined to live a life worthy of love.

Worthy explains:

“I am not going to ‘sugar-coat’ my journey. Over the years I’ve felt worthless and a complete idiot. One of the most difficult periods for me was back in 1997 after a horrific divorce from my first husband. I then met a very charismatic man. This man was in my life and my daughter’s life for just nine months. I stupidly believed all of his lies as he began controlling my whole life. I felt so powerless and towards the end extremely fearful of him. I hoped that it was just a bad dream and it wasn’t my reality.”

“In those nine months, he completely stripped me bare financially and raped me physically, sexually and emotionally. I felt ripped into a million pieces. I didn’t care if I lived or died. I had no house, no car, no job and I was forced to move my daughter and I back in with my parents. My life hit rock bottom. Luckily there was some small part within that knew that I needed to rebuild my life. To reinvent myself not just for me, but also for my daughter.”

Love Worthy – 21 Lessons in Creating a Deliciously Divine Life details Jo’s personal experiences, her determination, resilience and strength of character to move forward. In ‘Love Worthy’ Jo shares both her journey and personal development expertise. The book includes 21 lessons that have helped Jo move on from adversity. ‘Love Worthy’ is a story of healing, forgiveness, self connection and love. It is a story of never giving up and demonstrates that your past never has to define your future.

Tickets to the launch event include drinks, canapes, book signings and a take home gift for each guest. Any profits made on the night and 20% of book sales will be donated to Share the Dignity.
