Reflections of the Heart

Reflections of the Heart Cover

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 2019 this book has been published.

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 2020 at least that’s my goal. Around mid year perhaps.


My Weight Loss Journey – As of  December 2019 I am still working on this story. I’m gathering information from journal entries and writing them like  a story. Not sure when this will be done as I am still on my weight loss journey and will be for quite some time now.  I am currently  at 285 and need to get down to 130. So you see it will take me a while.


Gluten Intolerance: My Secret Stalker

I have printed off my journey my journey from 2007 which talks about my journey with  allergies and gluten intolerance.  I plan on having this book published in 2020  but we’ll see which one of these projects will be done first.
