When life gets tough, it’s not so easy to see it as a gift. When we are hurt or bad things happen, life seems to be anything but a gift.
This is a world where we come to learn, to grow and to understand. The only way to do these things is by living through good times and bad, in pressure and in happiness. It’s a human perception that moving away from rough things is what we need. And yes, that is what we need, but only after we’ve addressed the issues presented to us.
Life is a test and a testament. A test of whether or not we can get through hardship and a testament as to what we’ve conquered.
This piece I created speaks of the gift of life. Through pain and turmoil we see and learn about meaning in even the littlest things. Life is a gift: of growth, learning, seeking, finding and understanding.
I am deeply honored to say that now my book Breaking The Silence is a winner of six awards! All for Inspirational Fiction! This most recent award is the Gold Medal for Inspirational Fiction from Reader’s Favorite!
I am so grateful especially since this book is one of the pain regarding the things I’ve dealt with in life. It hasn’t been easy to say the least. But it gives me great joy to know that I can help others recover from tragedy and trauma with this award winning book. And a gift of meaning in life to know that even crushing pain can bring gain not only to myself but also to others-the reason why I wrote this book in the first place.

When I was afflicted by the pain and torment of my past, it seemed like I would never be able to heal. For years I wondered if healing was even possible. It seemed like a mountain that I couldn’t climb…as if my pain was too great to even fathom the ability to overcome it.
Had I known that healing truly was possible, I would have had more hope. My faith was low, my hope even lower. I asked numerous people who knew of my circumstance if I could ever come out victorious from my situation. The most hopeful response I received was “maybe.”
When you’re in the depths of despair for years, surrounded by very few people who are supportive, “maybe” isn’t a good answer. The word “maybe” caused my despair to deepen. But by the magic of God’s healing, I eventually overcame my situation.
This is a video I created about what I learned regarding healing. It’s not as elusive as it seems. In fact, it is possible to heal from the type of trauma I endured. If you’re in a period of suffering, please take a moment to watch my video. And know that you, too, can achieve happiness.
