I love words. Often over-used and under-appreciated! We fail to value their power. Our words give life. Our words inspire hope. We birth our own stories and use them to inspire others. My goal is to give voice to the characters in the untold stories of remarkable people. No better starting point than the stories of the people I know best, my family and friends!
I am grieving. Grief can either control us or we can acknowledge it and gain some control over how we maneuver through the difficult times. My desire is to give voice to my grief. It is uniquely mine yet I have something in common with every grieving heart. No better reason to share my journey than to encourage someone else.
And so it begins…with a shift in how I see myself. I no longer want to be a writer. I am a writer! I no longer run from my grief but I share stories from my own grief journey that people can relate to. I no longer give voice to my own shortcomings but work steadily to highlight the stories I believe the world needs to hear. Amazing stories that inspire individuals and strengthen communities. Stories that entertain and educate. Stories that must be told!
