In a memoir of missteps and misdeeds, DEANNA NOWADNICK writes of the hugeness of God’s love and faithfulness. Reframing life in God’s grace, she discovers an indescribable, indefinable, inexplicable love that has encircled her without fail through joyous, sad, cringe-worthy, heartwarming, forgettable, memorable moments in life. Fruit of My Spirit is for anyone who’s ever questioned God’s ability to love and forgive, who’s ever wondered about their place in God’s family or God’s place in theirs. Deanna offers hope for those who dare to question, who secretly wonder, and who fear to ask. Through stories of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, you will experience the enormity of God, too.
SIGNS IN LIFE begins with a late night encounter with law enforcement. In the harsh glare of a flashlight, author DEANNA NOWADNICK learns the consequences of speeding through a stop sign. Other incidents follow. All are linked to the divine signs she’s encountered in that bigger journey through life. Join Deanna as she shares humorous anecdotes and inspirational lessons from her travels with God. See the signs in life. She might be speeding through a stop sign–yet again!–while you’re carefully navigating a busy street, but together we’re all part of a bigger journey, a greater purpose. We’re all part of God’s great story.
As she used to tell her young sons, “Buckle up. We’re going for a ride.”

Before my father died, he reminded me that Mom had asked me to write a book. At the time the boys were in college, and the notion of writing was unfathomable. Writers write books. By the time my boys were adults, I’d run out of excuses. I was also at that age when I could pause and reflect.
Fruit of My Spirit: Reframing Life in God’s Grace was my first publishing endeavor. My second was Signs in Life: Finding Direction in Our Travels with God. Both are collections of stories that tell of God’s love and faithfulness. Both tell of His remarkable grace and mercy.
When not writing, I serve as the Client Service Coordinator for The Planner’s Edge, an investment advisory firm in Washington state. I’m active in my church, serving on the Leadership Team and gathering with a wonderful group of ladies to study and giggle over lattes and chocolate. On my desk is a rock with the words “Choose Joy!” etched in it. It’s my inspiration for each day. As an author, it is my hope that my own words might share that joy we find together as children of God.
With Him, it can be so.

The author of “Forgive Yourself”, Brenda Reiss truly walks her talk. She discovered the power of self-forgiveness when a series of life events put her in a very dark place. Failed marriages, abuse, and severe health issues were just a few of the challenges she faced.
Determined to rewrite her story, Brenda sought answers – and found them in the concept of “radical forgiveness”.
What she learned changed her life forever.
Brenda is highly skilled at helping people find peace in their personal and professional lives. Coupling teachable techniques with forgiveness theory, this certified Radical Forgiveness© Master coach creates an environment which allows clients to release anger, shame, and guilt. The result? An opportunity to live with joy in the present and the future.
Forgiveness is the key to restoring and maintaining wellbeing–forgiveness of ourselves, of others and even of life itself. Each individual life is indeed a journey. And one of the biggest decisions each of us will ever make is how we wish to spend our life–as a victim, or as a victor.
By continuing along your own, unique journey as a victim, you’re always carrying an enormous amount of baggage. That’s a lot of heavy lifting for one person to endure.
However, if you choose to travel the road of life as a victor, you’ll be amazed how much lighter, joyful amd fancy-free your journey can be. Forgiveness isn’t solely about getting rid of anger and resentment; forgiveness is about cultivating an environment of acceptance and allowance so that you can create the life you were designed to live.
I’m so excited for this beauty! I loved partnering with Michelle Radomski who is the most fabulous mandala artist I have experienced as she brings so much energy to the mandalas.
This book showcases the steps in the forgiveness process I take my clients through in a very gentle and simple process, and now it is highlighted with journaling pages and a gorgeous mandala for each step.
My hope is that you enjoy the book as much as I have in creating it
