I’m Christalee Froese—a journalist, an author, a mother, a seeker and a nervous-breakdown survivor. My book Journey to Joy is a recollection of my struggle with depression & anxiety and my recovery.
I’m a journalist by the strictest definition. But the true definition of me goes more like this: mother. writer. creator. seeker.
I have degrees in Journalism and Political Studies and have been the editor of weekly & daily newspapers. I now operate West Words Communications from my home office in Montmartre, Saskatchewan, Canada. My work focuses on writing a column called ‘Rural Roots’ and examining interesting people and places for various newspapers and magazines.
I’ve spent the last four years writing and editing my first book Journey to Joy. It will be published by Your Nickel’s Worth Press and released on April 28, 2018.
Thank you to my husband Lewis, my son Logan and my daughter Journey who are along for the ‘joy’ride.
