About Anna Sklar
Anna grew up in a small town in Southern Ontario. She is the daughter of immigrant parents from West Yorkshire, England. The first 2 years of her life were spent walking through the heather on the moors with her mum near the family dairy farm.
She now makes her home in a nearby city in Southern Ontario with her hubby, who is a minister. They spend their days trying to keep up with two athletic, smart, funny, and charming sons.
Anna is an author and publisher of personal reflections, easy-to-use resources, and helpful books. She writes and publishes to encourage others to pursue a life of simplicity so they can truly enjoy the moments of each day. Writing has always been a way of life for her, and has taken many forms through the years - poems, stories, essays, newsletters, articles, blog posts, and books.

The pages are full of 11 years worth of words. Words that speak of Living in the Moments and enjoying the day before you, whatever it may bring. The words were typed out and shared from 2007 to 2018 - as blog posts, articles for women's newsletters and magazines, and poems from Anna's journal.
Anna's daily living included moments of faith, marriage, and motherhood. These 11 years of her life focused on raising two sons (from ages 2 & 6 to ages 13 & 17), learning to mother a third son who was stillborn, serving in the church as a pastor's wife, figuring out domestic life, and finding her voice as a writer.
There were many ups and downs, some the usual and some out of the ordinary. Anna hopes to share them all with grace and humour, as an encouragement to all those who read this book.

Anna’s middle son, Caleb Joshua Freedom Sklar, was stillborn on May 21, 2003.
Writing about the experience has been the best way for Anna to process the grief she felt over the unexpected loss of her baby. In this book she offers journal entries, blog posts, articles, poems, thoughts, and reflections for you to read.
During the last ten years, Anna has encouraged and supported countless people on a similar journey of grief. She found her greatest source of healing came through connecting with others and sharing their stories. Discovering Hope contains a handful of those stories, contributed by other women who have discovered some hope weaved in with the sadness and pain of their loss.
For Anna, there were no answers for the loss; there were no reasons why her tiny Caleb died so suddenly. She shares her struggle to sift through the confusion and the heavy sadness. She comes alongside you while you do the same, and offers to walk and talk with you on the journey of healing.
Faith was the greatest source of hope Anna discovered on the journey. Through praying, reading the Bible and talking with other Christians, Anna was able to find some peace about Caleb’s death. Some days she was shouting at God, some days she was weeping, and some days she was calm and peaceful. He took it all from her and comforted her like only a Heavenly Father could.
Anna has searched for ways to make Caleb’s tiny life meaningful. This book is one of those ways.
