Books have the power to inspire and dig deep into people’s emotions. As it goes, one’s journey could serve as another’s roadmap. Journey of Seasons, written by Christine Heath, aims to take readers on a transformational journey by telling her narrative, a life filled with waves of sorrow, joy, and faith.
Journey of Seasons contains 30 years of the author’s life. Just as the earth would have seasons, Christine also had hers. The book provides readers with an intimate look into her experiences and how she discovered her strength amid adversities. Christine hopes that her book would provide answers if not make readers “live for today, for tomorrow is not a guarantee.”
Before writing Journey of Seasons, Christine has always recognized her passion and talent for writing. Like many authors, she sometimes finds herself haunted by thoughts and words until they set them on paper. At 16 years old, Christine would amaze people around her as she transfers some of her deepest thoughts and emotions into a powerful poem in 15 minutes or even less. “If I was to meet a stranger who told me an overwhelming story that brought me to my knees, I could write a poem,” shared the author.
For the author, the stream of words comes naturally as emotions would in various points of her life. Christine has been through a lot and Journey of Seasons is a testament to how she overcame her darkest days. The many seasons in her life have brought her to rock bottom. Through it all, she emerged as a strong woman who has won the battle against domestic violence, brain tumor, suicide, severe injuries from a car accident, and cervical cancer.
Asked how she overcame her circumstances, Christine shared: “God was my teacher, my healer, my advocate.” She found hope in her faith, and through Journey of Seasons, she wants to inspire others to do the same. “He will never give you anything you can’t handle,” said Christine. She hopes her book will help readers to see the bigger picture and allow God to be magnified in their lives.
As Christine has learned, “There is more to life than simply surrendering to pain and hopelessness.” Journey of Seasons is an instrument for the author to impact lives positively and set an example of an optimistic lifestyle. “I offer a gift of spiritual healing and hope in the form of my writing,” said Christine. She aims for Journey of Seasons to be similar to that of an alabaster jar of healing.
By sharing her raw, unedited narrative, Christine is uplifting souls in the global landscape. Journey of Seasons proves to be an important read now more than ever as many individuals fall into depression, lack self-worth, or are filled with questions on why negative things are happening in their lives. Christine knows that someone, somewhere in the world, is experiencing the same things she’s gone through, if not worse. “My seasons were not easy. Neither is life,” said the author. Through her story, readers can feel that they’re not alone in their battles.
Christine envisions to live every day fully. For the author, living by that principle has kept the smile on her face as she chose to live each day without regret, knowing that she has God and her alabaster jar of hope.
