Thanks for following along with the snaps of my new book project on Instagram and Facebook #thehealingyoucandoproject ~ this has been a labor of love, with lots of love and emotion and focus. It will all pay off when this book reaches the hands of people who desperately need it! I believe it is going to change perspectives.

The author, Meghan Hindi (The Birth Warrior, @birthwarriordoula), describes our upcoming book like this:

“A love letter of empathy, encouragement and affirmation for anyone who has experienced trauma of any kind. It is a promise that you can survive after physical and sexual abuse, and make the world a better place because of it…”

Meghan is a home/natural birth advocate who lives to empower women in every facet of their lives. Here are some sneak peeks if you haven’t seen them online yet:

Messy workspace 🙂 The one place in my house allowed to get disastrously messy (at least for a bit) 🙂

I look forward to showing you more as the time is right! Mostly on Instagram and Facebook.

The first illustrated collaboration was Mama’s Milkies, a beautiful story of a full term breastfeeding child. Follow the little toddler through the day as they wake and play, read, sing and finally drift off to sleep. All the while knowing that mommy still has “milkies” when they feel like nursing. This book is non-gender specific to touch the hearts of many.

My second illustrated book was a private book for a client and his family, the third is in the writing stage (artwork complete) with a prominent and lovely author from Indonesia… and my most recent book was released a year ago:

 

Carry You With Me is a heartfelt story written from a mother’s perspective of love, loss, healing and hope. We remember together the great loves we have lost and cherish all the ways we carry them with us forever.
