For 25 years, Beth Saadati has taught high school English in public school, private school, and home school settings. One of her greatest joys has been investing her time and heart into the lives of hundreds of teens.

Three years ago, however, Beth’s world forever changed when Jenna, her firstborn daughter, chose to end her life. There were no warning signs, no previous attempts, no indicators of mental illness. Jenna was fourteen. Writings Jenna left behind show that lies spoken by peers had somehow lodged in her mind until living became more than she thought she could bear. 

Now, through speaking and writing, Beth shares Jenna’s story in hopes that it will start conversation, speak life, and encourage others to fight through heartbreak and hurt.

Four of Beth’s stories were published in Chicken Soup for the Soul books in 2015. She is working on a young adult novel, based on Jenna's true story. Beth also blogs about suicide, depression, and hope in Christ.
