"I Wasnt' Dead When I Wrote This is a great book full of wisdom about how to live authentically and joyfully, and it’s extremely perceptive."
-- Ginny Moyer, Random Acts of Momness
"I Wasn't Dead When I Wrote This touched me in a way I wasn’t quite expecting. Written literally in the last few months of her life, this book is a gift of stories and insight to young people from a dedicated and loving youth minister.
Johnathan Sullivan, Director of Catechetical Ministries, Springfield, IL
"Although the author was a youth minister and the book is pitched as advice to the young, her words speak to the bald, paunchy, and gray-haired as well."

"This book is an all around winner for the life of a Christian teen. The voice in which it is written, the issues raised, and the penetration of the inner life of a teen, possess startling accuracy. While it is written by an adult, the urgency of having the courage to be your authentic self is the paramount issue for teens.”
