Writing has always been a way for me to “hear” what my heart has to tell me. I have kept a journal since the time I was a young girl and hid it from the prying eyes of my older brother. It is not surprising that when confronted with breast cancer – twice – I turned to writing as a way to cope with not only the current circumstances, but to craft a means of helping to heal myself and create my New Normal. Each chapter is followed by writing prompts to help the reader to begin to tell their own story.
“When a woman looks back upon her life, she realizes that her most important lessons, moments and decisions were created during her most difficult times. Mary E. Knippel captures the beauty of these moments in her book, The Secret Artist – Give Yourself Permission to Let Your Creativity Shine. Within these pages is the permission that we as women so often need, to take the time to nurture our creative selves. It is a blessing to all of us. Thank you.”
