Exciting Book News!

I'm near completion of my debut inspirational memoir, An Unbearable Burden, about losing my two-year-old daughter to a cancerous brain tumor only 30-hours after her diagnosis and what I learned about trusting God and leaning on Christ when life feels unbearable.

My Story

IMG_20210311_210935_083 (1).jpg

Elora was the quiet one. 

Maybe that's why I didn't notice the little hints that something might be wrong. She got sick so fast; a grand mall seizure that left her comotose before we made it to the hospital. 

The doctor found a brain tumor, but her fight was over before it began.

By the next morning, my Elora was gone. And I didn't know how I would go on if I had to leave her behind. 

But God did. 

He reminded me in myriad ways over that unbearable day of his promise; 

"I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you" (John 14:18).

He kept that promise.

He taught me that I did not have to bear my burden alone, that he would be with me every step of the way.


I owe more than I can repay to my Father in Heaven and my Brother Jesus Christ for sustaining me when my own strength and courage failed, and for teaching me how to survive Elora's death.  

I will see her again someday.

But until then, I will wear out my life in testimony of the hope, peace, and rest that come from trusting in the Lord.
