Rocks Through My Window
Welcome to my world of inspiring others, to my world of allowing parents out there to realize that they are not alone in the challenges of raising young adults. Welcome to my world of inspiration for troubled marriages, family conflicts, foregiveness. Welcome to my world of sharing. I’m so glad you’re here.
My debut novel can soon be in your hands to delight, inspire, entertain, and rock your most inner, personal feelings of where a family can be in the world of parenting. Explore and experience the personal decisions one couple made to resolve a family crisis. Journey through a personal saga where a family crisis nearly dissvolves a marriage. This inspiring story line will delight your mind, touch your soul, entertain your thoughts, and rock you to pass this writing on to others. Are we beginning our journey as parents wisely, in the middle somewhere painfully struggling? Or are the little darlings out of college, married, gone, and we think we’re done? Are we ever really done?
Here’s a fictional novel, based on a true story, where you can perhaps relate to your own journey between the lines. I’m a parent, grandparent, wife, and survivor of a ten-year period of parental trials without any constructive manuals or “Parenting for Dummies” publications. All the doctors ever said to me was, “Congratulations! Here’s your new baby.” Not, “Congratulations! Here’s your new baby, now let me tell you all you need to know to be a good parent.” What’s a good parent?
No, no family is perfect. Life’s not perfect, and a crisis in a family, or polarization within a family, or dysfunctional parenting skills, stress, foregiveness, whatever the case may be, can wreak havoc on a marriage. Many marriages don’t survive the challenges. Mine did. I’m one of the lucky ones. When you decide to either seek inspiration, or look for assistance, or simply read for entertainment, you’ll find out how I did it by reading Rocks Through My Window. You’ll also discover how thankful I am to have traveled the road chosen, and why.
Here’s a story that is an important one to share—one that may very well be helpful to you, or someone you know. I’m glad you’re here. Enjoy the ride!
