As promised, here is the inspiration that led me to write Tender is Heart. It all started years ago when my family and I volunteered at a clothing and food distribution center. Over a three-year-period I had countless conversations with families who very kindly opened up their thoughts and filled my heart with compassion.
The conversations that touched me the most were those of children who had been left behind and were now being raised by their grandparents. Having lived with my grandmother during my youth, I understood their conversations. I understood their struggles. I understood their pain.
It was memories of those conversations that prompted my heart to write Tender is the Heart.
I hope you enjoy it.
Thank you for stopping by.
