Grace Changes Everything
Thanks again for sharing your thoughts on the new cover ideas for my books. You helped. Both books are now re-dressed and uploaded through KDP onto Amazon – paperback and digital. If you aren’t familiar with them yet, I hope you’ll take a look.
Each of my books can be easily skimmed and purchased through a link on this newly refreshed website: www.janenicoletauthor.com. If you’ve only been reading my blogs on this site, I invite you to take some time and navigate around. You’ll see excerpts from both books, a few media resources you might find interesting, an easy way to contact me and, In the Grace Works section, a listing of the writing, editing, and workshop services I offer.
For the past 16 years I’ve been researching, reading, writing and talking about the complex relationship between grief and grace. Over time, this search altered my life’s trajectory and purpose. In essence, my son’s death set me on a path straight into the chaotic shadows of understanding and accepting profound changes, losses, and certain grief. This website has been a result of Matt’s push.
This Eckhart Tolle (Stillness Speaks) paradoxical quote has become a kind of mantra for my life and work:
“Acceptance of the unacceptable is the greatest source of grace in this world.”
Grief, the unacceptable, marking the loss of who and what is beloved, is a certainty . . . an unwelcome visitor that will touch every one of us. But when our grieving, demanding intellect can finally surrender, accepting its despairing reality, the merciful whispers of grace can be heard drifting through an opening, softening heart. And, life begins to change.
Sending love and light to surround whichever path you find yourself today.
