Let's face it. The world is filled with so much violence and hate, it's almost impossible to find the good out there--or even the godly. You have friends and family, even a religious community to nurture your faith, but when the world bombards you daily with negativity and sorrow, it would be nice to find a place on the internet where you can stop and take a deep breath. You need a safe haven to go to for comfort and peace; a place you can call your own. I'm offering another safe place to find solace and joy. I'm offering stories of inspiration to cast away doubt, build back your faith, and give you the courage to face the negativity of the world for another day.
I struggled as a child with the feeling I didn't matter. I knew there was a God, but I didn't think he knew me or cared about me. I had a strong faith in Christ, but I had so many questions. My faith led me to where I am today, secure in knowing who I am, why I'm here, and where I'm headed if I follow God's Eternal Plan.
Storytelling has always been my solace, especially as a child. It's led me to write the series, A Doorway Back to Forever, to give others hope that they too can remember who they are, renew their faith, and continue to have hope in a seemingly hopeless world.
Gratitude for Those Who Are Behind Me
If not for the wonderful colleagues, friends, and family that support me in this endeavor, I would not be here today. I'm grateful for Michael O'Neal, Mike and Kristen O'Neal, Nansi Krauss, Donna K. Weaver, Tristi Pinkston, Terri Lynn Bittner, Crissie Murphy, Kary Oberbrunner, David Branderhorst, Abigail Young, Mieke Paulsen, Katie, Danielle, and Tommy Ibrahim, and my mom, Roswitha Ibrahim.
