Life doesn’t follow a script and thorns hide beneath the rose petals, but faith heals all wounds. A truth Cecilia knows intimately. A survivor of domestic violence and twice a widow, she draws strength and courage from her faith, holding onto God’s promise to “see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.” That trust led her to a dream wedding at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and her new husband’s whispered vow, “A lifetime with you isn’t enough.”
Although Cecilia wrote her first book when she was twelve years old, she didn’t pursue writing seriously until a series of odd coincidences encouraged her to share her faith through stories, illustrations of God’s intimate involvement in every aspect of our lives.
Cecilia lives in western Idaho, close to her childhood home in southeastern Oregon. She and her husband enjoy exploring the Northwest in their RV and spending time with her three grown children and seven grandchildren. In addition to her passions for camping and family, Cecilia is an avid reader and an artist. Her blog features Christian themed stories, photos of her African wedding, her month-long tour of Africa, and some of her artwork.
