Endure Everything with Patience: A personal journey through suffering

(Back cover text): She was broadsided by a high-speed vehicle that left her likely to remain in a vegetative state for the rest of her life, but this is not the end of her story—it is the beginning. Journey with Mikayla as she goes from an incapacitated 16-year-old on the brink of death to a 20-something hiking miles through the mountains of Spain. Enter into her timeline of sorrows and failures as she discovers her own helplessness in overcoming her sufferings, and share her joy and freedom as she learns to embrace the pains. Suffering is not enjoyable for anyone, but no one is excused. From what do you suffer? Do you try to take control over your pains, or do you surrender them over to God? Mikayla endeavored both paths, and her testimony is to the difference.

Love Me: Wanting to be wanted, and the battle over worth

I am in the process of writing a book that dives in deep to pull out the root of lies and cleanse the wounds that skew our perception of our beauty, dignity, and worth. It is vulnerable and honest, because you are worthy of light and truth.

"Exposed" (from chapter one)
I hide in the darkness
Isolated in my shame
Yet when the light shines forth
Here I remain

All is revealed
My sins are disclosed
It all burns in the light
Leaving only my dignity exposed

Please pray that I may always be following the guidance of the Holy Spirit as I continue to write and sketch for this project.
