About the Author
There are only so many times you can have somebody tell you, “Gee, you should write a book about your life” before it eventually happens. While I don’t consider myself to be an interesting person, it would seem that many people think I’ve led an interesting life. I see it as years of turmoil that were full of some bad decisions and a lot of bad luck, and I don’t consider getting continually blind-sided to be all that interesting. It was only recently as I struggled with my renewed walk in Christianity that I realized how my past hardships could help other people with theirs. The more I read the Bible, the more I thought, “Hey, something like that happened to me!” Sometimes I would need help to understand exactly what the scripture was saying, but in the end it was surprising just how up to date the Bible is despite being thousands of years old. It’s also surprising that some of the traditional sayings like “Turn the other cheek” might not mean exactly what we think they mean. In the end I have come to realize that being jaded and sarcastic won’t help weather the storms of life (so says my husband) nor will that help you to move on. Join me as I pick up the pieces over and over again in a surprising revelation of my life that has been private for so long. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you may even be shocked and amazed, but most importantly I hope that you can learn from my life. I’ve been a GM Lineworker, Wendy’s Manager, Mediator, Teacher, Principal, Capital Planning Officer, Curriculum Developer, PSAC President, Aboriginal Consultant, Library Chairman, School Bus Driver and Retail Worker who has moved 20 times, lived in two countries, one state, three provinces, and is twice divorced, happily married, mother of one. It’s been a busy life and I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way. Walking the path of the straight and narrow might seem overrated, if not impossible, but if I can get back on that path after everything I’ve been through then there’s hope for you as well.
