About the Book

I've wanted to write another book for quite some time now. My last work, Unlikely Allies: 8 Steps to Bridging Divides that Impact Leadership, was written and published in 2010. I love to write. I just don't make the time to do it as often as I should or desire. Sharing information, empowering, and inspiring people is what I truly love to do. Part of the challenge of why it's taken me so long to write another book is I didn't know what I was going to write about. Should it be about business, politics, inspiration, or motivation? Yes, there are other books with those topics brewing in my mind, but something out of the ordinary happened to me in 2021 and it's been in my heart to share it. When I first received the news, I was stunned. It absolutely took me by surprise, but oddly, I didn't get emotional about it. The follow-up letter, additional tests, and consistent information shared to me by the nurses and doctors prepared me for what was to come. They were kind and gentle with the news. Methodical, prepared, and knowledgeable about everything they expressed to me. You see, they've seen all of what I was to experience before. Probably hundreds of times with all the people they serve. But this was my first time…ever. And so, my story, my journey, will be told and is my next published work. As you read this book, you will note that I switch from first person to third person throughout. Parts of this work are direct comments from my journal on any given day. I pray that these words will be a blessing to you! "And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him; and if he has committed sins, they shall have forgiven him." James 5:15-16
