Reflections of the Heart –
As of January 4, 2018, this book has been published for almost a year, but I recently (December 2018) took this book off the market to incorporate some changes that I think will make the book better. As soon as it it is published again I will post the links.
About Reflections of the Heart:
At 17 years of age, it is not when one wants to hear your mother is really sick and needs surgery. It’s not anything too major just removing a gallbladder. But when the doctor tells you that they found tumors all over your mother’s stomach and that they were cancerous, your nightmare is about to begin. Follow me along my journey caring for my terminally ill mother, learning to become an adult overnight, and relying on my faith to get me through.
Secret Anguish: My Mental Health Journey – As of December 2018 the book is finished and just needs to go through another edit.
About Secret Anguish:
Everyone dreams of a normal childhood and that’s what I thought I had at a young age. It was when I first saw my dad lose his cool and start slamming doors my mother told me to go to my room. That was the first time I remember being scared. But as I grew I saw more and more things happen and more people in my family upset, even my mother in tears. My happy, precious family, was anything but. It was dysfunctional, each of five siblings and myself doing what we could to help ourselves through our fathers mood swings, anger, dissatisfaction and criticisms. He may not have been aware of how his behavior affected us, but it did.
Join me on my journey through childhood, adolescence and into adulthood as I battle overwhelming emotions, a sense of loss of self, loss of a protective father, low self esteem and so on. Walk with me as I go on this journey of diagnosis, medications, hospital stays, therapy, and ultimately relying on my faith not just to see me through the rough and easy times, but relying on my faith to sustain me, to strengthen me to share my story so that others may be encouraged.
Veiled Affliction: My Journey with Fibromyalgia – As of December 2018 I am still doing research for this book as well as adding in my experiences. I am hoping it will be published in 2019 at least that’s my goal. Around mid year perhaps.
