Don’t Say You’re OK if You’re Not
Play • 54 min

Taylor Murray is a TCK—a “third culture kid”—who lived in Japan from the age of nine until when she graduated high school. Although she lived in a loving family, she struggled with anxiety and an eating disorder that came to a head when she spent a gap year in Germany. While in rehab, she came to the realization that it was OK not to be OK, and she is committed to being vulnerable and transparent about her struggles—and helping others to do the same.

Taylor wrote her first book about life as a missionary kid when she was 14 years old. Hidden in My Heart is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle versions.

More recently, she wrote Stop Saying I’m Fine: Finding Stillness When Anxiety Screamsavailable in paperback and Kindle on Amazon.
