was married to Donald Edward Karper from September 23, 1984 to December
16, 2003. "Joy Comes Through the Mourning" was written over
a period of 1 1/2 years after Donald's death. The letters, poetry and
spiritual games that I played helped me through the healing process.
I originally completed the book in 2004, but it didn't seem like it
was ready for publication so I put it aside. I continued to grow in
my relationship with Christ, in 2004 I started my training to be a Certified
Biblical Counsellor. I was totally immersed in my study of the Word
and discoverying things that the Lord wanted for my life. Little did
I know that in 2005 my life would take an even greater change with the
entry of Willie Smart into my life. In August, 2008 I married Willie
Smart. In July 2011 I published "Joy" for the very first time. I offer
it to you as a tool to help you or someone you know go through the dark
cycle of grief and mourning. I pray that God will use this book to help
you rediscover your joy.

I just finished reading your first novel "Joy Comes Thru The Mourning"
and all I can say is "Keep Writing!". Your words not only
allowed us to peep into your life ..you opened the door allowing us
to see, hear and feel your every breath. As you prepared for your wedding
down to the visit at the hospital where your husband had just died.
You may have written this for anyone who ever lost someone dear...but
I in my third eye revisited my own life, evaluating not only the deaths
within my family but the loss of a marriage and yes even for the child
I had lost early in my pregnancy. This book is for any/ and everyone
pondering thru their fears, their uncertainty, and even thru their disappointments.....But
if you've ever witness pain in your life...then you too know JOY does
And as I read about your Joy I embraced it as I embraced my own..and
today I thank-you wholeheartedly for opening yourself up to your readers
to captivate every thing you endured...and to know that we who know
and believe in our Christ shall also rise above our own fears, trials,
disappointments and yes even the deaths...But you bring perspective
to our lives by reminding us there will be Joy!! Thank-you for a book
well written and allowing us to know it will be all over in the morning...If
We Just Believe".
I Loved It & Keep On Writing
