I recently had the chance to toss a small chapter into a quirky little compilation put together by my friend Dan Schmidt and now available in paperback and eBook formats on Amazon.
Letters to Me: Conversations with a Younger Self is receiving enthusiastic reviews. Here is what some are saying:
There is something maddeningly compelling about this book. You want to leap into its pages and shake some sense into the characters just like you’re reading a page-turning novel, except that it’s real life and if you could somehow grab them by their shoulders, you would realize you were staring yourself in the face. The talent of these storytellers is revealed in how universal their personal stories are. In their stories you will experience agony and joy, pain and healing, fall and redemption. —Adam S. McHugh, author Introverts in the Church: Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture
This is so needed. I’ve often wished I could go back and have a strong talking to with my younger, more idiotic self. These stories are funny, heartfelt, and important. Reading them will make you think and imagine a better life—maybe even give you the courage to live one. —Jeff Goins, author, Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams into Your Comfortable Life
One of the most unnerving, unsettling things one can do in life is stare at themselves in the mirror—eye to eye. Letters To Me is the sacred chance to witness person after person pause their present as they stand naked in the mirror, facing everything they’ve been and everything they’ve done. To listen to what they hear in their souls, to see their past as they truly do. Oh, how I wish I’d been given this collection of stories earlier in my life. The entrance into adulthood would have been painted with so much more grace. —Lauren Lankford Dubinsky, founder of Good Women Project
A beautiful timeline of truth, honesty, and hardship. Explore each story in hopes of finding yourself, and when you do, rejoice in the commonality and understanding. This compilation of stories reveals redemption of the past from the bright eyes of the present. A beautiful work of introspection. —Rachel Sender, student
