Welcome! It is with great excitement that I launch this website dedicated to my non-fiction book: STRETCHED YET UNBROKEN, A Family Knit Together Continues Their Legacy of Faith.

I began to write this five generation family memoir of God’s faithfulness shortly after my beloved husband, Cary McMinn, died suddenly. For more than 28 years we had co-labored daily as parents to our 11 children, and in our family economy. It was more than a shock that I became a widow so young. It was devastating to consider that I wouldn’t have my good man around to enjoy our life together for at least another 28 years into the future.

Writing became crucial therapy for my grief recovery. I set challenging goals in order to avoid stagnation. At the end of my writing journey, with God’s leading and gracious mercy, the manuscript was ready for publisher review on May 31, 2014 – what would have been my husband’s 63rd birthday, just days before the one year anniversary of his Heavenly home-going.

It is with sobering humility that I have used my God-given writing passion and skills to honor my family, my friends, and ultimately my Savior Jesus Christ in this manner.  I am very pleased to announce that Generations With Vision, my husband’s favorite radio broadcast and publishing house, has contracted to publish STRETCHED YET UNBROKEN. Both hardback and e-book editions are available for purchase on this site’s PURCHASE tab, at the publisher’s website www.generationswithvision.com, as well as in kindle format on www.amazon.com.

To build, and continue momentum for the publisher’s release date, each Friday afternoon from September 2014 through April 2015, Lord willing, I will post an excerpt from my book, working through the Chapters in order.  Please take time to investigate the other menu selections.  If you enjoy glancing through my posts, I hope you’ll consider purchasing and reading the book in its entirety.

Thank you for your interest in my writing, my family, and our lives. I hope and pray that reading this book will inspire you to live an abundant life, finding true peace and joy while doing so.
