Friends, if you’ve wanted to read my book, Confessions of a Lip Reading Mom, I have a surprise for you. This Friday and Saturday only, the book will be available *for free download* on Amazon Kindle.
Click here to access Confessions of a Lip Reading Mom on Amazon Kindle. Remember, it’s free only on March 28-29.
In this book, I explore the roller coaster ride of progressive hearing loss, which was diagnosed two months after the birth of my first child. I was 27. Three healthy kids later, my hearing loss accelerated. Sounds once taken for granted – the doorbell, smoke alarms, baby cries – became quiet. In the midst of imminent and unexplained deafness, the book describes my struggle and eventual discovery of God’s grace.
I hope you enjoy the book! Please leave a review on Amazon once you’ve read it.
Thank you Shanna. I have picked up my copy.
So happy you are reading it, Kathryn!

I have just been extended the Brave Heart Award — And now I’m nominating YOU!
You can find out more about the award by following this link…http://picnicwithants.wordpress.com/2014/04/01/braveheart-award/…it will take you to my blog post about the award.
Please leave me a comment if you accept the award.
Each nominee is notified with the inclusion of the following words: (Note from me: remember, a survivor from abuse does not always mean from physical or sexual abuse. As someone with illnesses we are often abused by others who don’t understand, by doctors…ect. You are not Alone.)
Stand Strong You Are Not Alone
I call you a survivor, because that is what you are. There are days when you don’t feel like a survivor and there are days when the memories trigger your past and it feels like you are losing the fight – but you are not. Take the past and heal with it. You are strong.
I want you to know that any abuse you experience as a result of your diagnosis is not your fault. It does not matter what age it happened. You did not deserve it, you did not cause it, and you did not bring it on yourself. You own no shame, guilt, or remorse.
In your life, you have faced many demons, but look around you and you will see there is hope and there is beauty. You are beautiful, You are loved, there is hope.
You deserve to be loved and treated with respect. You deserve peace and joy in your life. Don’t settle for anything less than that. God has plans for you. Your future does not have to be dictated by your past.
Each step you take you are not alone. Stand Strong.
Thank you so much, Wendy!
