This book is a group of poems I have compiled on my journey of healing God has brought to my life. When I asked God to forgive me for the life I had lived and to come into my life He did. However, just because I had invited Him into my life and given my heart to Him didn’t mean my life was perfect. I had so much emotional baggage from the way I had chosen to deal with life. God made us to have emotions. He made us to feel, hurt, laugh, cry, and be angry. He wants us to use these emotions by sharing them with Him and others in a healthy way. He doesn’t give us feelings to shove down into the depths of our soul or numb them with things. Unfortunately, that’s easier to do than express them. We turn to alcohol, drugs, materialism, unhealthy relationships, food, and anything else we can. Pain is a part of life and if we neglect it; it festers and remains. We can carry it around for years and it will come out in many different and disastrous ways. God wants us to allow Him into our pain so He can heal us and use us. When I opened my heart completely to Him the process began. I didn’t know it would come out in the form of poetry or even that I would write anything down. I do know that I felt compelled to write and I did. I cried a lot. I received relief and restoration from storing years of bad decisions, pain, and consequences. I would like to dedicate this book to my brother William Boling III and my best friend Robin Baird Bramblett. Both of their deaths have made the strongest impacts on my life. William’s death took me deeper into sin, muck, and mire by choice. Instead of our family drawing close to God and each other to deal with it we all went our separate ways with our pain. Robin’s death and the pain from it caused an awakening in my soul to stop taking life for granted. I had already given my life to God, but I wasn’t living like it. I wasn’t giving life all I have or the important relationships in my life. I am also thankful for my husband and children who have been Jesus to me through it all. I am thankful that God led me to a church that prayed for me. I am thankful for every person who has been a part of my journey. Those who have hurt me, loved me, or helped me. I am thankful for my pain because without it I wouldn’t have needed a Healer or a Savior to help me. In closing, I also want to dedicate this book to the youth. I pray that somehow the words of this book will inspire them not to squander themselves, their time, or their talents for the fleeing pleasures of this world. I pray they will turn to God and do extraordinary things by following His plans for them instead of their own. ** 1 Timothy 4:12 don’t let anyone despise you in your youth, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, .in love, and in purity. **2 Timothy 2:22 so fl ee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. ** Jeremiah 29:11 “for I know the plans I have for you, “ says the Lord “They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope. “

It hit me, the reality of it, in a way it hadn’t before like a sledgehammer straight to the chest. Laura was gone. She was never coming back. I’d never see her again; she’d never hum in the kitchen, she’d never pull Ruby onto her lap and tickle her tummy as she buried her face in the sweet curve of our daughter’s shoulder. Nathan West loved his wife Laura with all his heart. But now she’s gone, taken from him in a seemingly random act of violence. Laura was the glue that held their family together. And for Nathan, life without her feels almost meaningless. As he tries to find hope in the darkness, his three young daughters express their grief in different and challenging ways – with one set on a path of self-destruction that could devastate their family all over again. Desperate to understand his own heartbreak better, he reaches out to others who had known Laura. Including her new friend Maria, whose light and warmth are exactly what their grieving family needs, and who is soon helping out and providing emotional support for them all. But the picture Maria paints of Laura is unfamiliar to Nathan – of a wife who felt ignored, a mother who felt she couldn’t do enough – and he struggles to reconcile it with his own memories of the woman he loved. Is it possible he didn’t know his wife after all? And can he trust Maria? He can’t escape the feeling that she’s keeping something from him. Maria is hiding a secret with the power to rock Nathan’s family to its core. Because it is about what happened the day that Laura died… An insightful and powerful novel guaranteed to break your heart, about how the unthinkable can sometimes help us see the world in a powerful new way. Perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain, and Susan Lewis.
