Author Bio: Hi everyone! I am a licensed psychologist, author and speaker living in the Pacific Northwest. I grew up in Southern California and love being near the ocean. Some of my fondest memories of childhood are of swimming and snorkeling around Catalina Island. I have three grown children, three grandchildren and four dogs. Life is good! I’m very excited to introduce Makai King, which combines my love for the ocean with a wonderful fantasy carrying a positive message to young adults.
Blurb: Off the coast of Lanai, far beyond the sailboats, there is a hidden world beneath the beryl-blue sea, the marvelous kingdom of Moku-ola, a place where man and beast live in harmony. Unknown and forbidden to those living above the surface, it has never been discovered….until now.
THOUGHTS ON FORGIVENESS:
Forgiveness is a theme woven into the Makai series and a topic near and dear to my heart. Forgiveness is about so much more than what is going on between you and the person who hurt you; it’s about the state of your heart. When you harbor anger or bitterness for someone, your thoughts and emotions are captured by that situation, keeping you trapped, spiritually, emotionally and mentally.
Forgiving moves you forward, frees you and allows healing to occur. When you forgive you escape resentments’ trap and stop the grip of bitterness on your heart. When you hold on to hurts, you are the one who suffers, not the person who offended or harmed you. Forgiving doesn’t mean you have to remain in a bad relationship, condone the behavior, expose yourself to abuse or forget what happened. You can forgive and still hold someone accountable for his or her actions, or even break off the relationship altogether.
More and more research is finding that people who forgive experience lower levels of physical pain, anger, depression, blood pressure and heart rate.
Take a moment and examine your heart, it may be time to let go of the negative emotions holding you hostage. Be free to fully step into the person you were created to be.
