“I can relate to much of what she wrote about her mother, her husband and her trials. I’m proud of her beyond words for the strength and courage that lifted off the pages of the book as she tells her story to the world. She inspired me to keep believing. I plan to use your words of wisdom.” Latasha, CO


“Oh, what a great book. This is an easy read. With a cup of coffee and a quiet house you can read this lil’ keeper in just a few hours. What makes this such a good book is that it is so REAL, everyone can identify with Patti. Not necessarily because you have ever experienced the hardships she has endured, but because you can identify with her. She has such a sweet spirit that comes through the pages of this book, so much that you can’t put it down.” Melody, FL


“Patti has definitely lived through more than the average women but she never fails to give God the glory for every good thing. So, what makes this book such a great read isn’t that she has endured hardships, it’s because she has lived to talk about it and she talks about it in such grace that you feel you are a personal friend of hers by the time you finish reading her book.” Debbie, CO


“This book assures you that no matter what you may be experiencing right now, it’s not the whole story. There is hope, there is peace. You will find encouragement on the pages of this book. I have had the pleasure of meeting Patti a few times and believe me, you would never know of any of the things she talks about in her book from just meeting her. She does not live in a perpetual pity party, she lives with vitality and is down to earth, a very pleasant person to be around.” Jill, CO


“Life truly can be a ‘pressure-cooker’ at times …. reading how someone suffered and survived and better yet, beat it is always an amazing way to boost one’s positive energy.” Tari, CA
