With PTSD becoming not so rare in our time Healing Waters will bring some understanding to the reader on this often misunderstood subject. It was a light read for a dark subject. There is hope and help for those and their loved ones afflicted by this condition.

Brady offers a personal look at his time in the military and shares a thoughtful tribute to his daughter in this book. The memoir underscores the challenges facing many military veterans while providing a redeeming story about love and family.

Ashley singing

This video was shot in Wiesbaden Germany.  Ashley did an amazing job and blew the audience away. She developed into a beautiful singer and would always be listening or singing music.

This is when Ashley was in track. She did the high jump (like her dad) and she could run like the wind.
