Medusa, a Memoir, has touched the hearts of readers in ways I hadn't predicted when I started a journal during sleepless nights after receiving a scary medical diagnosis. Growing up with illness in my family, I dreaded the health journey ahead of me, and writing down my thoughts in this memoir released my worries.
What actually happened in the years after the leukemia diagnosis is something else I never predicted: I learned how to flourish in a new, challenging life. The lives and health journeys of my parents and oldest sister formed the groundwork for my own adventure with illness. It is my own faith, however, that lifted me from despair to swimming as a mermaid in a wide, shimmering sea of hope.
My Next Book . . .
I HAVE FINISHED WRITING A BOOK tentatively titled From Wayward to Worthy: Honoring Nameless Women of the Bible. It is a fresh and lively group Bible study--or for individuals with lots of imagination--with soulful journal topics, modern extensions, reflection essays, and introductory skits!! Oh, yes, there are also discussion questions on these amazing women of the Bible.
Most of these women were kept quiet in traditional Bible study. In my book, the women come out of the background and take over----twisting the plots of their stories in a uniquely feminine way!
I hope to bring out this book in 2024.
