Author Question “Why Did You Write Your story?”

January 31, 2013 at 10:55 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )










I have been asked why did I decide

to write my first book “Healing in the storms.” Sometimes our lives are forever changed in the blink of an eye. When we marry, we envision a life growing old with our spouse, we imagine our lives retired and maybe traveling and enjoying our grandchildren. I do not live my life with what if.. or I wish.. I continue to live my life everyday looking forward to the good things God still has for my life. 

 What happens when a young woman finds herself raising her child alone after 6 short years of wedded bliss to her husband the love of her life? What happens when th son she bravely and tenderly raised is lost to a tragic car accident just 17 years later?

      Thank you Amy. Our lives sometimes take a different direction than we planned. I am thankful for the time I was given to spend with these two men in my life. My son alone has given mwe great stories to write about!

    Whenever I feel like complaining about the things that have gone wrong in my life, I write it down. I can be more objective when I see the problems in black and white. I wrote a self help book based on that premise. I used a fictional story to make it easier to face the more difficult things. It was therapeutic. I also remind myself of the many people out there with larger problems than mine. I personally have not lost a loved one yet. Not in my adult life. I can’t imagine it, but I know it is coming one day. It’s a good thing there is truly life after loss:)
