Hi Sharon,

Thank you for connecting and thank you for posting reviews for Home. I'm grateful!

If I've suffered from anxiety, it is only in small doses. But perhaps, I've struggled enough to have an inkling of how debilitating an anxiety disorder can be and how it can impact one's life. In both my last novel, Flames, and now Home, I explored anxiety issues--panic attacks in Flames and OCD in Home. I have fought against symptoms of PTSD since childhood and there are links between PTSD and anxiety, certainly.

My prayer with each book I write is to offer hope to those who struggle.

If I'm still stuck, I'll read a writer whose work has inspired my own creativity in the past.(less)

I’m vaguely aware of my dog’s paw, small and gentle, on my shoulder. His tap, tap, tapping pulls me from the fog of slumber.

“No,” I mumble, certain day has not yet broken night.

As I roll away from my persistent pup, a knife stabs at the base of my neck and thousands of needles drill into my right shoulder, arm, hand, and fingers. I moan, though not audibly. Instead the moan rises within. Echo...

“Sometimes keeping a secret seems like the right thing to do because telling the truth might hurt someone and makes it seem like you don't love them. But really, telling the truth is the right thing to do. It's the most loving thing to do.
-Kaylee”

“Love is just a word until you put actions to it”

“Look beyond a person's actions and see their heart. Look for what's causing them to act the way they act, then you'll understand them better.”

“All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.”
Julian of Norwich

“If there is anywhere on earth a lover of God who is always kept safe, I know nothing of it, for it was not shown to me. But this was shown: that in falling and rising again we are always kept in that same precious love.”
Julian of Norwich

“God, of thy goodness, give me Thyself;
for Thou art enough for me,
and I can ask for nothing less
that can be full honor to Thee.
And if I ask anything that is less,
ever Shall I be in want,
for only in Thee have I all.”
Julian of Norwich
