I am reading Facing Our Skeletons right now. I really like the acknowledgement part of your book. It sets a very nice tone for the rest of the book. Facing Our Skeletons is different from all the books that I have read. It doesn't take me all over the place and remains focused on the subject. This is the kind of book that everyone can relate to. I can't wait to finish reading it. You're an excellent writer.

Carmel the book was excellent. I can relate to Stella and her friends a lot. She reminds me so much of my cousin. You did a wonderful job and I am so happy for you. I passed the book on to some of my new co-workers and they just love it. So far four people read the book in one day while at work. Keep up the good work and I will be happy to keep supporting your talents. Don't forget to remember me when you come to Georgia.
Facing Our Skeletons (Book) - 2/9/2004 6:49:21 PM
what a wonderful book. i cried as i read it.so many women are facing
the same situation's and have no one to talk to, you feel as if you
are the only one with these issues. we must find strength in GOD and
friend's to find our way.
thank's for putting my life into word's
Facing Our Skeletons (Book) - 2/1/2004 10:15:50 AM
I'm actually in the middle of reading another book, but after reading the excerpt i can't wait to finish it so i can sink my teeth into your book. If your poems are any insight into whats to come and whats in "Facing Our Skeletons" the world better strap on their seat belt because they are going for a ride into the psychcy of an up and comer who's talent, emotion, and sheer passion have no bounds.
Facing Our Skeletons (Book) - 2/1/2004 4:59:43 AM
This book is very good. It holds the readers' attention by incorporating real life situations. It made me laugh, fuss, be angry, etc. I think we have all been where Stella has been with relationships. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who's been in and out of turbulent relationships.
Facing Our Skeletons (Book) - 1/28/2004 8:24:39 PM
Hi Carmel. I just want to say that I greatly enjoyed reading your book. At times I laughed so hard that my husband had to kick me out of the room. And at times I was so caught up in the way that these women were dealing with their interactions with the men that i couldn't put the book down. Your book has taught me the importance of spiritual maturity when dealing with intimate relationships. Thanks again for such a great book.
Facing Our Skeletons (Book) - 1/18/2004 11:47:39 AM
Great Book! My cousin put me on to it. Your book is a must read for us women praying and hoping to find a true gentleman to share our precious days with. I am glad that you choose to show what the power of persistance, self-determination, and self-love can accomplish when one believes in him/herself. Many of us women struggle with those same issues you mentioned in the book. One of the characters reminds me of my current situation. Thank you so much for the encouragement.

Nice story about Comfort! But I wonder if Comfort had prayed and asked God specifically for a mate, might that have made a difference!

It's strange how a hysterical voice deep inside can be muted into shame..You're right ,there 's a path to follow if the victim wants to forgive himself or herself...treacherous as it may be.

Is she right for you? (Article) - 4/23/2009 10:45:08 AM
Really good advice this should help a lot of people make the right choices. I also found that you should ask your partner lots of questions to find out how they really think or feel about topics. If you want to learn more check out my blog. http://questionsforrelationships.blogspot.com/
Is she right for you? (Article) - 8/22/2007 8:51:53 AM
Anyone looking for the "right" way to meet someone special, can't go wrong by applying the practical-down-to-earth advice ... in this marvelous article.
Spiritual Healing (Article) - 11/16/2004 12:16:28 PM
It's also important to know that trials and tribulations are interwoven into our lives and are an important part of our Spiritual Growth; which is part of the "grand scheme" of our Salvation. In Psalms 23rd, it states that "Yea though I walk through the valley..."--not "TO" the valley. So be of good cheer and rest; assured that God will take you "through" your trials and ribulations.
Everything on earth will pass away (anyway), so build up your "treasures" in heaven!
Note to Readers: (For more information on this topic; see "PASTOR" <smile>...if you don't have one; one will be asigned to you! <smile>

Is she right for you? (Article) - 11/4/2004 11:43:26 AM
Very good write and well thought-out...
I'm curious to know--how did you write this from a woman's perspective? Was this your experiences from the dating scene or
was it told to you from someone who have been through a many "trial and error" on this! <smile> You also forgot one important bit of advice: Please consult Proverbs 31 before proceeding.
Wishing You Much Success!

A very well written Haiku on this view of Nature and its power to speak to the world...
nice work.....Art Sun...
The Power of Mother Nature (Poetry) - 11/15/2006 4:14:59 AM
this is good...it's as simple as that. I am glad to see someone writing in the spirit of haiku, rather than the form...haiku work best when they are written concisely, with layers of meaning...like this work of yours.
Your choice of art in the link blends well, making this a total and delightufl package.
I will be visting your pages again.
The Power of Mother Nature (Poetry) - 10/7/2006 1:30:51 AM
You have your first name which is exactly my second name and your surname which is precisely my first name. So we do have some affinity exculding age as you are young and I am getting on in years :-) This is a delightful haiku. I have written some but I prefer the longer poetry. Victor

much needed and wonderfully delivered poem!
The Tireless Blanket (Poetry) - 6/21/2004 4:51:28 PM
Excellent positive message in this lovely poem.
I had the best dad ever!!!I didn't have step dad though but I know there are some great ones out there.I feel sad for anyone who can't say they had a caring dad or kind step dad or decent reliable father figure,(I have read some tragic horror tales re that subject even on this site.)Not having a reliable father around must hurt them so much and in fact I know it does,as my youngest daughter has never had a dad living in her home (she's going on thirteen)and it is an empty dark void even in a loving happy home.
Yes Carmel,these type of good men deserve much praise,I admire them so.You mentioned God in your poem Carmel,
very apt,for those wkids who have no earthly
dad to 'be there'and count on it is good to know that they still all can count on their heavenly Father for reliable Love...always.
I think your poem is Tops!

Too Young (Poetry) - 2/29/2004 5:49:32 AM
There are so many young women out there today that face this issue everyday. None, no matter how mature they think they are, are really ready for the responsibility of having to raise a baby. My heart aches for them.
Wonderful writing, Carmel.
Loving Me (Poetry) - 2/27/2004 7:45:27 PM
It takes a lifetime to shape and appreciate ourselves. It's a neverending project. Good poem, and thoughtful.
Too Young (Poetry) - 2/1/2004 10:04:39 AM
Interesting poem. It expresses the reality of motherhood that some young people are usually blind to until they're faced with the consequences of being irresponsible.
Too Young (Poetry) - 1/18/2004 10:56:39 AM
Sometimes when we are very young we tend to make choices that are hard to deal with after the fact. It's a flaw in our youthfulness. But then we are not perfect, only human.
Excellent write. Lisa
