Inspiration through the printed word-

The privilege of writing inspirational fiction and Self-help books is that I have the opportunity to turn bad/sad experiences into redeeming and positive ones.
            Painful memories, whether from childhood or current, can teach us a thing or two about forgiveness and our own inner strength and resolve.
             Don’t you love to read a book that seems to speak to your personal struggles and gives you hope for a wider heart and a greater faith?  I know I do!  So, if I get the chance to write a story or a self-help book that can do that for someone else, well, that seems to be the main point of the gift I’ve been given…to turn inspirational words onto paper that can make a difference. However big…however small, doesn’t matter.  One drop of rain on parched ground is better than none.                                                                        
         Writing reminds me of sowing seeds. We scatter the seeds of our background into inspirational
stories and books. But we have no idea if they will ever reach the masses. But when those
transformed seeds sprout through the dark long hours of work and perseverance into an accepted novel or  self-help book featured on and Barnes and Noble, it’s time to rejoice. Our seeds now have the potential to be fruitful to many readers – to spread their sprouts into brokenness and sadness and bring hope and renewal.  Now, that’s an awesome power that words possess, if we use and bring them forth accordingly.
