Why you should read this little book

The world is full of hurting people. I am one of them.

When you have losses in your life, you feel alone. Like no one cares. When you have one loss after another, it’s even harder to feel loved.

After losing my mom, my dad, and going through my sister’s disappearance and death, I had so many questions. Then I got angry. I pushed my anger down along with my questions.

How could I ask God questions when I was mad at him?

But I found out God was bigger than my emotions. He made my emotions and he could handle them.

I remember when my son, Nathan was three years old. I once closed the car door on his fingers. I’ll never forget his surprised look as he cried,

“Mom, why did you do that?”

He knew me enough to know I wouldn’t hurt him, and yet, I had hurt him. Badly.

We are going to be hurt in this life. People we love will die. But, that doesn’t mean we’re not loved.

Are you going through a hard time right now? Then you need to know you’re not alone.

You are truly loved. When I realized I was loved, it made all the difference in the world.

This little book I wrote is for anyone. It’s a book for everyone. It is my story of how I found real love. And if you’ve never experienced this love, I want you to know about it. And if you have experienced it, then share that with someone else.

Everyone needs to know they are loved.

You can download, “Real Love: Guaranteed to Last.” It will be free February 13.

I write words you can feel, sometimes they rhyme. If I'm not writing, I'm telling stories from my head, to little ones who call me grandma.

    I’m going to buy your book, I’ve been going through the hardest time in my life, and found your website. It’s been hard for me to feel like God loves me if He let this happen, (even though I know He does), I think your book will be really helpful to me. I want to be able to have the perspective you seem to have.

    1. Michelle,
      God allows circumstances in our lives that are difficult for us to understand. I have had many of these circumstances, but I have learned that God is good regardless what happens in our lives. He is good because that is his nature. He can’t be anything but good. We try to decipher why things happen, but God wants us to trust him. He wants us to take whatever faith we have and to put it in him. Remember that we are trying to figure out an infinite God, but we only have finite minds. We don’t think like God. And he is the God of all time. So he not only understands our past, he was there. He is in our present and we’re told that he is close to the broken-hearted, and we know he is also in our future. How can we not trust a God that is always with us, and always will be?

      I hope you get to the place where you trust him even though you’ve gone through difficult things. He is a loving Father and he has also promised that he will work ALL things together for good to them who love him. I have seen him work in my life and I’ve seen him bring good things out of hard things. I am still waiting for his working in other areas. His timing is different than our timing. But I will trust him. We don’t have control over many of the circumstances in our lives, but we do have control over how we respond.

        thanks for your reply, it really means a lot. I have realized that I am struggling with trusting God, and I’m so overcome with worry, I pray and ask Him to help me with this but He doesn’t seem to be helping me or giving me any peace. I feel dead inside and feel like my life is over. I feel like I’ll never be the same again.

        1. Sometimes we never will be the same, but that doesn’t mean that God can’t still work in our lives. Remember, for those of us who know him personally, God promises that he will keep working on us till we get to glory.
