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 2021 this book has been edited for the 100th time. LOL (Not really.) But I have decided to pull the book off the market and find a literary agent who will help me find a great publisher.

About Secret Anguish: My Mental Health Journey

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 father’s 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.

My Weight Loss Journey – As of October 2021 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 307 and need to get down to 130. So you see it will take me a while.

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.

Okay so this book wasn’t published in 2020. I haven’t been working on it and I’m not even sure where I stand with book. This book is still in the beginning stages, but I have printed off what I have. I’ll work on this as soon as I am done with Secret Anguish, and Reflections of the Heart.
