Dry Bones is a thoughtâ€“provoking memoir of my grueling journey toward peace and acceptance. My journey is one of abandonment, fear, rejection, unworthiness, shame, guilt, neglect, and growth. It was written with the singular hope that through my stories, young ladies can find their place and voice in their own journey through life. I touch based on what patterns I learned as a child and how that affected me throughout my life. My daddy issues and the emotional manipulation thrown at me by my father drove me to go down hollow streets, searching for things that were unattainable. It made me question my place in this world, and I thought that I had to feel less than from others in order to be accepted. Each dry bone has taught me valuable lessons in love and in life. Those parts of me constructed a beautiful person who doesn't need external acceptance.
