InspirationI have always been a lover of words. As a child, I loved the way a book could carry me into other lives and times. It was as an adult though, facing my own real life trials, that the power of words became so dear to me. Often the situations I faced left me feeling alone and in the dark. It was through the writings of others that light began to shine back into my world in those dark days. I am grateful to those writers who were willing to share their own lives. Now that I too am living in the light of joy, I want to carry on that tradition of loving people through words. It is my hope that others can learn from the paths I have walked.
