A Mother’s Plea
What made you decide to share your story now?
“I have loved books since I learned how to read. I realized I wanted to write a book while working in the library at my children’s school over twenty years ago. I just thought it would be a book on mystery since that’s my favorite genre. After making a scrapbook for my daughter on the story of her hearing loss, I realized I had something to share with other parents. I don’t want anyone to have to go through feeling hopeless like I did. I just didn’t know how to go about getting a book published. I believe things happen for a reason, and that it’s all in God’s timing. I’ve been an empty nester for a few years now, and have wondered what God wanted me to do with my life. I went through a time of feeling like my life’s purpose was over. My kids were my life. I went back into the corporate world, because that’s what I used to do before they were born. I got laid off of work last March due to the pandemic. Two things happened. One was I was able to sit back, and think. What I went through with my girls happened for a reason, and it was time to pay it forward. I also had more time to focus on my entrepreneurial job, and hired my friend, Tina Torres, as my business coach. I joined her and Angel Tuccy’s Connect Summit. I was soon introduced to Michelle Faust. What a blessing this has been to meet her. She quickly took me under her wing.”
