The last few months have been interesting, to say the least. After publishing, “Picking Up the Pieces to 100 Broken Promises,” I expected my life to change, but I really didn’t know what to expect. I have had conversations with characters in my book and it has been therapeutic for them as well as for myself. I have had the opportunity to help others come to terms with experiences that affected them and their families. I think I’m going to interview some of the people that I wrote about, it may be awkward, but for you guys, I’m willing to do it.
My ex contacted me after reading a story that affected him in a major way. I had an abortion at age 16, and I went through severe depression and suicidal ideations. My father saved my life and I will forever be grateful. My ex apologized for not “being there” for me, but we were kids. We had no business doing adult things and suffering adult consequences. He wasn’t involved in the process. I found out that his father never told him but he was aware. I remember trying to have this conversation with him but his teenage mind couldn’t comprehend the weight of the situation. I had to bear this burden alone, or so I thought. My earthly father and my heavenly ABBA were there. Writing this book was a healing process for me, and so many others that read this. I realized that there needed to be another element to make it possible for my readers to actually go through their own healing process. I developed a companion workbook to Picking Up the Pieces, and it will be released soon. I am excited to see you all learn, heal and grow. I’m by no means 100%, but I am so much better than I used to be.
