30 Days of new beginnings,
enlightenment and breakthroughs.

Sign Up for the 30 Days of Firsts






A few minutes a day for 30 Days – that’s all I ask.

The Message in A Bottle has changed the lives of over 40,000 people – it’s time for you to take the journey and experience a new beginning for the next 30 days. Whether you are experiencing the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a job, or any other loss – it’s time to start finding the glimmers of light as I guide you through 30 days of firsts.

Change doesn’t happen overnight, but by building upon small leaps of faith and even bigger daily wins.

There is a reason why so many people have started living after reading A Message in A Bottle – words have power and the community at Second Firsts provide support and encouragement.

30 Days to start living your life again.
To start believing in you again.

30 Days to build the life you deserve.

For the next 30 days, you will receive an email from me with one message for you to absorb on your journey to Reentry.

And each day, you will take one small step forward with guided homework and action steps.

What is possible for you 30 days from now?

Come join me, will you?

“The Message in a Bottle every week challenges me to be brave and bold in my choices. To take good care of myself so I can better care for those in my life. To pursue the next best, next right thing by embracing what I’ve been through and moving forward in faith. Christina, I am immeasurably grateful to have found your wisdom in my journey through grief.”
– Helen Grace Elder
“It makes me feel awesome. Like you are talking to me. It gives me hope and courage to stay in this world. Two months ago the pain of grief and lonliness made me try to take my life. I am here to say that your messages keep me going and thinking. Thank you!”
– Susan Voigt Winkelman
