This book of encouragement, is written as a love letter back to the Lord, praising Him for all He's brought the author through. She’s the daughter of a prescription drug addict and alcoholic. Having survived a traumatic brain injury from carbon monoxide poisoning, the author leads a God-glorifying life. God's love for us is intentional as are our trials and hurts. They're not mistakes to Him. He may not move your mountain and He may even allow a larger one, but He’ll walk the path with you if you let Him. So, just begin with one step or one breath. No matter what He puts in your path, no matter what season you're in, joy or weeping, He doesn't forsake His children, so find Him in each season. Let Him support you, let His grace break your fall. You may have been slowly turned or vigorously thrown by the storms of life but you’re still usable bent or broken, beautiful or tangled. If you've lost your trust in Him, you feel broken and helpless; you're drowning, over your head in despair, in need of just one more breath, this books for you. It'll bring hope to those recovering, those still fighting, and those just breathing. 'With my last breath, I'd say I Love You.'

About the Author

I've lived both beautiful and broken breaths, and writing's my ministry. I write about:

- being a daughter of a prescription drug addict/alcoholic

- healing, hope

- grace, love

- encouragement

- forgiveness

- Dyslexia,

- brain injuries

- and Jesus

I'm thankful to be the wife of the most encouraging husband and together God linked our lives through merging tears, broken hope, a long embrace and many answered prayers. I received a fairy-tale ending and God gets the glory.

One of God's greatest blessings is a beautiful daughter that I had the honor of birthing. God met us both in years when I bent and she and I witnessed His mercy mend my brokenness.

When I extended my hand and heart to the man God sent; along came five beautiful blessings in the form of beating hearts, along with their eight precious 'littles' who call me 'Honey.'

I spend my days writing and loving Taylor's, all fifteen!
