As a wife, I know you want a strong, healthy marriage - one characterized by intimacy, respect, and friendship. To achieve this, communication is key. The problem is, years of disconnect and unresolved pain may have left you frustrated, overwhelmed, and at your end, feeling like there’s no hope for your marriage.

I believe you deserve to be heard, for your pain to find a voice, and for your marriage to heal. And I know what it’s like to be holding on by a thread. At the top of 2020 my own marriage was at its breaking point - and my only release was my journal, pouring out my heart through poetry. Those journal entries provided the language I needed to explain to my husband how I felt and where our marriage was failing - and ultimately became Bed of Roses: Thorns Included. 

Determined to preserve our marriage my husband not only agreed to marriage counseling, but championed the publishing of this book, so other women can give voice to their pain and begin to find healing with their husbands.


The way forward may not be easy, but it can be simple:

  • Read Bed of Roses: Thorns Included

  • Engage your feelings and find your voice

  • Begin communicating with your husband again
