“Debbie Emick is co-creator and blogger at She is co-host of the One Life. Live It! podcast. She lives on the planes of southeastern Colorado with her husband, two daughters, Denali the dog, and her six chickens. When she’s not traveling to the mountains, the beach, or Spanish-speaking countries, you’ll find her there, in her sun room or on her back porch sipping hot tea.

Her book, The Other Side of Perfect, is a brutally honest and revealing peek into the life of a woman whose multiple diagnoses and bleak prognosis would be the surprising source of her ultimate liberation. After trying everything she knew to recover from the physical damage of autoimmune diseases–medication, nutrition, fitness, reducing stress–Debbie found her health continuing to deteriorate and in the deepest depths of depression she’d ever experienced. In her desperate attempt to claw her way out of hopelessness, this people-pleasing perfectionist stumbled upon her greatest source of self-healing yet–resurrecting the past to heal the future.

She’ll lead you through how following her intuition allowed her to finally process the repressed trauma of her childhood, ultimately healing her mind and body at once. Her story will show you that it was only through stripping away all the protections she surrounded herself in, to expose her most authentic, vulnerable self, that she was able to move beyond superficial health and toward something more meaningful and sustainable. Debbie takes us along with her in her own self-discovery that her adversity was her greatest gift, pointing the way to her freedom all along.”
