Bent But Not Broken
With Jodi Wilks-Butters and Avery Butters

Follow us as we use our own words in blog posts and through an emotional and gripping narrative that puts you by our side through all the ups and downs, challenges and successes, of an experience that changed our lives and taught us that compassion and love builds strong communities, even stronger families, and that true strength comes from the most unlikely sources.

You can read my story on the Darwin Awards website under the title The Barbequed Chef or buy the book and read the whole collection (it's hilarious in an "OMG human civilization is doomed" sort of way).
