Can we be forgiven?
During these challenging times when fear and self doubt abound, hope fades. As it becomes a far off memory, it's easy to get lost in the despair. It's easy to give up. Fighting and searching for the answers can be exhausting. Sometimes it just seems easier to just go with the flow and hope for the best. But at what cost? Easy frequently leads us down the exact opposite path of where we need and want to go. It is only when we challenge ourselves to reach beyond our comfortable to do we find what we desperately seek.
Things do happen for a reason. It's just sometimes it's more of a challenge to find the reasons. God saw a Butterfly is a parable of answers to the questions we are afraid to ask. In Shylon's journey through her own fear, guilt, and anger, she becomes a signpost for others to follow on their quest to find the patterns of their lives. As she choose between love and hate, she gives other permission to face their own darkness.
God saw a Butterfly will help those, who seek to understand the challenge of their lives, while giving them hope that is is never too late to forgive or be forgiven.
God saw a Butterfly is available as an Amazon Kindle and as a PDF on the author's website. Proceeds will be used to fund the TV series, Horses and Heroes. Buying the PDF gives more support toward the production costs.
Horses and Heroes is a Reality TV series, which combines the highly effective Peer Support Therapy with Equine Therapy. Unlike most in the genre, it will focus on healing and positive growth rather than endorsing bad behavior. Each season will bring together the veterans from WWII to the current conflicts. They will be sharing their challenges and supporting each other as they find new solutions. They know the talk, because they have walked the walk. They see the dodges and will be able to call each other on them. Sparks may fly. Tempers may flare, especially when they force each other to face the ghosts. But will also be laughter and fun as they rebuild the comradery. The snarkiness and practical jokes between the branches don't simply end. There is always room for just one more. When it airs, it will reach into the homes of the veterans, who need to hear that they are not alone and give them the information as well as the permission to also heal. They will help each other find their way back to the world. Veterans can’t go back and make a brand new start; but they can start from now and make a brand new end.
