Great News!

In a few months, Lord willing, I will be able to unveil something very exciting! I have worked on a book for the last several years. After the loss of my mother as a young girl, for many years I carried around the “call” to write about it. The book will give hope to those who go through the loss of their mothers, or the loss of any loved one. It is part memoir, and contains stories based on interviews with brave women telling their mother-loss stories.


God has been faithful and helped me to form and finish the book. There have been many twists and turns, disappointments, trials and joys during this process. It’s amazing how the Holy Spirit led me through all these to accomplish the task. I’m working with a publisher to polish and refine all the details.

The question in my mind is whether it is ready. Is it as good as I can make it, or is there something more which needs to be done? Is it finally the right time?



I’m thankful to my blog and devotional readers, my friends, my husband, prayer warriors, interviewees, and mentors, as they each cheered me on and supported me. They encouraged me to press on toward the goal of the upward calling of Jesus Christ.


Many more details will be coming! All glory to God!

  1. Wow. I can see how this is a deeply meaningful project. I am blessed that I still have my mother, but my heart has ached for 30 years for seeing my 18 month old cousin loose her mother, my best friend….

    Your theme/topic is key and important for this generation. Delayed and complicated grief/loss was researched several years ago at Harvard. They found that 15% of all outpatients coming for therapy with depression had delayed grief as the cause of the depression!
