In the early morning hours of March 7, 1999, Justina Page’s life changed forever when a four-alarm house fire ravaged and destroyed her family’s home. In the aftermath, in addition to the heartbreaking loss of one of her 22-month twin boys, Justina had to cope with the physical injuries left behind on both her and their surviving sons.
Out of the ashes of this tragedy an ember of hope sparked lighting a path for her award-winning book, The Circle of Fire, which chronicles her triumphant journey to full life.
Justina experienced a very horrific situation with losing her son, injuries to multiple family members and the loss of all of her possessions. Yet against all the odds she went on to become an author, found a nonprofit, speak professionally, create a documentary, and many other impressive awards.
