A True Warrior: Stephanie Nielson

Everyone who knows me, knows that I am an avid reader. I read several books at once, sometimes several a week. It is my own personal escape from life, always has been. It has always helped me release my brain from the stress around me and escape to another place.. even if just for a short while. In fact, my friends and family make fun of me because my reading habits are so odd. 
Being a VERY busy mom, with 3 young children I squeeze in my reading anywhere I can get it. You can always see my Kindle propped up next to me while I cook, clean, pee (if you really wanted to sneak in), you name it. My books go with me everywhere, and if I have a second to spare
 Im eagerly reading down another chapter or two.
So when one of my favorite bloggers, Stephanie Nielson ( The NieNie Dialoges ) released her own book, chronicling her personal triumph over death, I purchased it for my Kindle instantly.

 Stephanie's story of physical, and emotional pain, is one that should be read by all. It is one of the few books I have been taking my time with, really cherishing the message that she shares. 
She is a True Warrior. Each time I read more of her internal or physical struggles my heart aches for her and her family. You feel as though you have instantly become her biggest cheerleader, rooting for her to overcome these obstacles and find the inner peace and love she needs 
in order to deal with the life long trials she is now faced with. 

As a mother myself, I can hardly imagine what life would be like in her shoes. Her optimism and personal resolve inspire me in my own life, and in the relationships that I cherish. She has inspired so many people to focus on what we do have, and embrace the ones we love...
 something we should be doing anyway. 
She has come out of the depths of death promoting love, hope, and gratitude for our lives.
You can purchase her book HERE and I HIGHLY recommend you do.

Watch her inspiring video to learn more about this amazing woman, wife and mother. I promise you won't be disappointed... FYI: Tissues will be needed.
