Welcome! I’m so glad you are here. I am currently on a new adventure and I would love to have you join me on the journey. Since I was a young girl, I’ve always wanted to write a book. As an adult I’ve thought about sharing my life story of chronic pain, domestic abuse and mental illness. But I struggled to know exactly how to write it and when.
But in the summer of 2018 that all became crystal clear to me. One day I sat down in my dining room, with my laptop, and started writing. I wrote and I wrote and I wrote. Eight weeks later I had a first draft – about 120 pages and 18 chapters.
After those eight weeks I was stricken with a debilitating depression. For about two and a half years I was stuck and sat despondent in my recliner. Then in March 2020 I started feeling better.
In June I decided that I needed to add “the rest of the story,” as Paul Harvey used to say. I finished my story and started looking for a publisher.
Today my manuscript is in the editing process and is due to be released in October 2020.
This is what my book (Our Only Hope: Living a Life of Freedom) is about:
“For those trying to weather through the storms of life, Grace Rockwell offers encouragement by sharing her own experiences and what she has learned from them. Growing up with chronic pain and in a negative abusive environment, where she was often rejected and alone, Grace learned to put her trust in the Lord. No matter what storms she faced, or how much pain she endured, Grace always came back to the Lord for help.
Grace’s experiences will encourage you as you face your own storms in life. She reassures the reader that we can trust that God is always with us; He has a plan and a purpose for our lives. Our Only Hope will take you along Grace’s journey to find that the redemptive power of God is our only hope and it can become an anchor for our souls.
Grace’s passions include not only spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, but also advocating for those suffering from chronic pain, domestic abuse and/or mental illness.”
