Being Transparent tells your story about dealing with your son’s drug addiction and how you found the strength to move forward in life through your faith in God. Why was this an important book for you to write?
It was important for me because I wanted to reach out to someone in a similar situation and bring hope and encouragement by letting them know that there is light at the end of the tunnel if you don’t lose hope and faith. I also wanted to share how important has been my faith in God to be able to move forward and find healing.
I appreciated the candid nature with which you told your story. What was the hardest thing for you to write about?
I think the hardest part to write about was how I felt like a failure as a mother and my mixed feelings at that moment about raising my grandson.
What is one piece of advice someone gave you that changed your life?
Take one day at a time, yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not promise.
What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your story?
With God all is possible! And by this I mean that we might not get what we want at a specific moment or for a hard situation to be change the way we want to, but God will provide at the moment what we need if we put our trust in Him. And as we put our trust in God, we will be change for the better.
