My dear readers, I have some exciting news to share with you..
I wrote my first book!
In this quick read, you will learn a little more about me, and be comforted that you are not alone in the trials of life. It is my hope that you will leave reading the book inspired and with a renewed sense of hope.
The title is close to one of my favorite 80’s songs by the band Simple Minds. I chose this because the book is about me learning not to forget myself in my journey of loving and serving others.
I drew all the art on the cover. Each symbol represents something about me. For example, people who have inspired me, and hobbies I have like reading.
Below you will find a link to my book as well as be able to see a preview of it. It’s available on kindle, or paperback. Please enjoy!

I’ve tried to make time to read, however, and I just finished the book “Living a Life You Love: Embracing the Adventure of Being Led By the Holy Spirit” by Joyce Meyer. I loved it, it’s super simple and straight forward, like all of her books. And man, does she have a great sense of humor. The part about obedience really struck me, and how God rewards our obedience. I also took the part about praying for God’s grace to heart, and I have been.
I had one of those “oh yeah, I need God” kind of days. You know, one of those days where you realize how far you have to come. One of those days you are humbled and realize you are a child of God and not God. One of those days where there is more than your fair share of human waste. You get the picture here.
My husband and I have been married for 8 1/2 years. I met my husband working at a coffee shop. We fell in love and got married in the Catholic Church in February 2011. We married on our one year anniversary of becoming a couple. We couldn’t be happier. Continue reading “Our NFP Story”
