Earl Goldmann’s poignant and moving memoir is the story of a young boy growing up in Tillamook, Oregon, and the terrible injury inflicted by the man who should have been his mentor. As he struggled to understand and to forgive, an unexpected gift from a faraway relative gave him an outlet for channeling his anger into a positive life.
While playing basketball at Oregon State University, Goldmann is severely injured in a horrific car wreck and is forced to return to his hometown to recover. With his athletic scholarships gone, can he realize the life for which he always dreamed?
While her friends danced and partied at Woodstock, Patricia donned her first wedding dress. Haunted by her self-destructive patterns, she searched years for the one who would fill the emptiness in her heart.
This poignant and moving memoir follows Patricia’s dangerous journey through love addiction, domestic violence, and post-traumatic stress. Her raw reflections and conversations with God offer a glimpse into the heartbreaking chaos she survived. Patricia bares her soul and shares her harrowing experiences and emotional insights from her struggle to find the courage to accept her role in her own life. For every woman who has followed her heart instead of her head, Patricia’s story offers hope and inspiration.
Patricia reveals her upbeat and insightful personal story of the relationship she had with her youngest sister—her friend, her confidant, her soul mate—both growing up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and living almost 2000 miles apart as adults. Now God has taken her from the journey through grief to a place of inspiration that often accompanies acceptance and adjoins faith by calling her to share her sister’s gifts with you, by embracing her sister’s wit, charm and beauty with you and weaving together a meaningful story of love and courage inspired by real events and ideas you can use and reflect upon as you travel your own life’s journey.
