GREENVILLE FRIENDS, I will be at Fiction Addiction today, Wednesday, November 8, from 5 to 7 p.m. signing copies of “Mothering Addiction.” I would absolutely love to see you. I can’t wait and am so proud of my hometown!





A couple of weeks ago, my yoga instructor read the following LOVE WARRIOR post at the beginning of class. My sun salutation must have created just the right amount of space within me at just the right time, because those words took root. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them since. And then I was talking to my friend and PR collaborator Joni Albrecht, and she knew the quote. And then on another day, another friend sent me the post. I’m curious how these words, how this brave message about true pain and true love, hits you? #motheringaddiction #bigpain #biggercourage

“Where is God in your story?”

LHH, fall beachA friend recently asked me, “Where is God in your story?” She asked me in a friend way, not in an accusatory way. I think it’s a good question. Other than a few quotes by Frederick Buechner, I don’t have many overt references to the spiritual world. Yet, my story is all about God. Every part of “Mothering Addiction” – the situations, the outcomes, the people, and the words to convey what they all mean – is interwoven with God and His redemptive nature in such a way that they are one in the same. I mean, only God can turn addiction inside out to reveal silver linings. I don’t want to rank any of the ways He has worked above another, but I will say that in my journey of healing, people have over and over delivered to me exactly what I needed at the time I needed it. I have no other explanation than God, and I am grateful.
