About

I never imagined the feeling of 'heartache' until the loss of my mother in 2013. In fact, for the first time in my adult life, though, I am ashamed to admit, "I was angry with God. Why my mother?" Months would pass by and I continue to pray to God for answers as my heart pine away at the question, "Why my mother?" Finally, the answers would be revealed to me, but not without a price with clear instructions: "Write down all the findings that your heart desires."

So, pen to paper, I would begin to write down my life blessings, which revolved around family, hope, love, and faith.The Lord would penetrate my heart and reveal to me how 'selfish' I'd been in asking him, "Why." After all, I'd been blessed to have had my mother for almost a half-a-century. Not to mention, I still had my 85-year-old father on earth, of which my mom had asked on her death bed for my siblings and me to look after.

I would read the biblical passages that mother read to my siblings and me, growing up. Eventually, the anger, grief, and sorrow would dissipate as the tears turned to laughter thinking of my childhood. I soon learned that writing poetry afforded me the reassurance to be thankful for the time spent with my mother. Thus, poetry was the device, but the memories and life lessons were the 'true gifts' from God. 

My personal journey and relationship with the Lord taught me the following: "Poetry was inextricably linked to my family and me, as we were the beneficiaries of an amazing woman who had completed her task---fulfilled her purpose on earth; pen to paper was to be my reminder." Moreover, whether visible or invisible, on earth or not, poetry would teach me that 'LOVE IS ETERNAL'!

Two years in the making, I have now parted the veils of my heart and shared the deepest thoughts of my soul in my literary debut, "Through My Mother's Voice, I Found My Own." However, I need your help to finish what I have started. Tell all your friends! Spread the word and tell your friends of your contribution(s) made. Please share this campaign by email, FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM (ALL SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLETS) to help others find out about my campaign. 

By doing so, you will help me to share my story at book signings, readings, book festivals, and many promotional gatherings where I can help to inspire others to find their voice...

Respectfully,

E. V. Frapiere...

Risks and challenges

Through My Mother's Voice, I Found My Own was released 23 December 2015 by Westbowpress (A Division of Thomas Nelson & Zondervan). It can be purchased on the Publisher's web page, Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Barbara's Bookstore, and a few local (boutique bookstores).

I am very excited because it has been 2 years in the making, but now I need your support to finish my project. I am working to attend festivals and other events to get my book out to the masses.

Risks and challenges: A lack of interest in poetry.
However, I believe my story is a compelling one that consists of love, faith, and family, and people will gravitate and empathize on the subject matter.
