RestoreHer: The 7 Steps of Healing Enlightenment and Renewal

by Cheryl Lacey Donovan

~~~

Synopsis
 
We spend our days rushing from one task to another at work and home only to drop into our beds at midnight , completely exhausted. Our society has changed a great deal since our parents were in their prime. Today we are addicted to speed, see busyness as a status symbol, take care of not only our children, but also our aging parents, and work as many hours as possible to keep ahead of the Jones’. It’s no wonder most of us ignore ourselves and our own needs. It seems like there is simply not the time to do more than grab food on the go and snag a few hours of sleep before starting it all again.
 
Is this you? Does this sound like your life?

If, you would like to begin the process of healing, enlightenment, and renewal, but don’t know where to start, you are in the right place. In this book, Cheryl will guide you through several steps imperative to the restoration process. By the time you are finished reading, you’ll not only acknowledge that taking time for yourself is worth the effort, but you’ll know how to make it happen. You’ll be totally on board and moving towards living a reality where self-care and filling your cup first isn’t a reward but a necessity

EXCERPT

Chapter 4 Book – RestoreHER Purpose
At one point I had big dreams and aspirations that made me feel excited and alive, but that was before I decided it was easier to just play it safe and live life by the rules. Rules that told me to go to college, get a good job, save for retirement, take care of my family, and live happily ever after. But I knew deep down inside I could do more; be more, but I was afraid of the uncertainty that was on the other side of my dreams and every time I started to think of the possibilities, I snapped back to reality and recommitted myself to going the safe route.
Work, marriage, raising children, school, all of these have demanded my time at one point in my life or another. For the most part my life was good, but I couldn’t help but feel disconnected from the passion that others feel about their work and life in general. The deepest part of me knew it was possible, but I just wasn’t sure where to start. And like most people, early in my life, seeking God for purpose took a back seat. I mistakenly believed that if the people around me were okay then I must be living my purpose, right? Wrong. There was something missing. I was constantly asking myself, “Is this IT?! Isn’t there more to life than THIS?!” But I didn’t share those questions with anyone because nobody else seemed to ‘get it.’ I was “successful” in the eyes of a lot of people so, I felt guilty and ungrateful! You see, somewhere along the way I lost the excitement that of living the life my soul intended in exchange for the mundane, responsible adulthood I was told to live. In my heart though, I knew I could do more; be more. And although I didn’t know exactly what that was or what my next steps were, I knew I couldn’t carry on like this forever. I was spending every waking moment searching for the missing link everywhere. But I’ll let you in on a little secret. The missing link was in me and it’s in you too.

Testimonials and Praise for RestoreHER:
 
After reading Chapter 4 it stirred up some things on the inside of me and activated my journey to connect back with my purpose. For over 20 years I have fulfilled another mans passion and allowed my own purpose to die, however after reading this chapter I’m getting back on track and moving forward. As I began to reminisce growing up as a young girl, it was brought back to my memory the things that I spoke and meditated on over my life regarding what I wanted to be when I grew up. This brought forth a sense of excitement and child like faith all over again. I sense my purpose has awakened it will be fulfilled and lives will be changed for the better because the desire God placed on the inside of me shall come to pass! Thanks for the opportunity to share. ~ Sheronda Odums 
 
I want to thank you for allowing me an opportunity to read a chapter of your upcoming book. OH MY GOODNESS…that first chapter was enthralling! From the self-discovery {knowing oneself}, to the self-image {loving oneself}, to allowing our mistakes to grow us and not define us {mindset mastery}, it truly spoke volumes to what every woman, of every race, at various ages are experiencing. Because we live in a society where the snake-talk media has a strong influence on trendsetting, the power to body-shame with the click of a button, and the exploitation and degrading of women are the new norm, it poses a challenge for a woman to stay true to herself. Her identity then becomes lost due to her thinking that who she is or who she would like to become isn’t acceptable and therefore frowned upon. It’s exhilarating to have a book that inspires women to live their best life, reassuring them that it’s perfectly fine to follow those BIG dreams they had as little girls; to embrace who they are currently while enthusiastically looking forward to the women God is calling them and creating them to be; to “revivify” what was dead in their life…the inspiring beauty of being a woman! I am eagerly awaiting the release of the book so I can be an evangelist.Nekata Jones  
 
The chapter entitled RestoreHer Health was an enlightening account of what can happen, when we do not make our health a priority. Cheryl allows us through her own transparent testimony, to realize that we must take our health seriously and offers important information to help us to be more proactive. ~ Jaime Washington

Snippet

Lennie leaned down, kissed his forehead and placed the napkin across her father’s lap. Just as she got it in place, Burt looked up at her. Lenore was gutted. More pieces of her already broken heart fell away. His ashen skin, mottling and in different shades of brown and gray unsettled her. His slack jaw and visible body tremors made Lennie shudder. His eyes were her undoing. The mischievous gleam responsible for so much laughter, which had helped to comfort, console, and encourage her… was gone.

Father and daughter were still eye-to-eye, the reality of the situation holding Lennie in place when she felt his frail hand cover hers.

“Thank… you, baby girl.”

Lennie smiled and kissed his cheek, comforted with the knowledge she made her father happy. “You’re welcome, Daddy… always.”

Before Lennie could retrieve his dinner plate, Linda Kelimore was already cutting the meat into tiny portions. “I’ll help him with this, Lenore. Take the other plate for yourself.”

“But that’s yours, mom.”

“It will be cold before I get to it. Go on, eat. I know you’ve been on your feet since the lunch rush.”

Just like that, Lennie was twelve years old again, doing as she was told.

Picking at her food, she tried not to stare at her parents. But Lennie couldn’t help but be mesmerized. Watching as her mother fussed and cooed in loving tones at Burt to take his time and chew each tiny bite of food. Linda caressed his cheek between bites. Burt rested his hand on her knee, never taking his eyes off Linda’s face.

Feeling like an intruder on a private moment, Lennie did force herself to look away.

Anyone who knew Burt and Linda Kelimore knew they were totally devoted to each other.  More than half a century had passed since the day they each ran into a mechanic’s shop in need of quick repairs. Though they were both on their way to meet other people, a thirty-minute conversation changed their plans for the evening and the rest of their lives.

With their time together dwindling away, the couple did what they had always done… shared each other’s company.

Linda set Burt’s plate aside, and Lennie gathered up the dishes and excused herself.

While putting the food away and loading the dishwasher, Lennie was surprised to see her mother enter the kitchen.

“Everything okay, mo-”

“Yes, yes, sweetie. Leave all this. I’ll get to it later. You can head on home now.”

“Mom, no way do I leave a mess for you to clean up.”

Lennie reached for another dish but Linda caught her hand and held on.

“It’s okay, Lenore. You can go now.”

“But…dad…-”

Linda pulled her daughter into a tight embrace, speaking into her ear barely above a whisper.

“I know. His hospice nurse was here earlier and is returning soon. I talked to your sisters before you got here… and they each spoke to your father.” She pulled back, a pleading look in her eyes.

“I’ve never asked you for anything, honey and I know this is no small thing I’m asking you now. But… I need this time with him alone. Right now, I’m no one’s mother or grandmother. Lennie, right now, I’m just a wife who has to say goodbye to her husband. Please don’t be angry with me or hate me, but I need to do it alone.”

Hugging her mother close, Lenore allowed the weight of her words to sink in. She did not want to leave. Her father was dying, how could she walk away?

Seeing the pain in Linda’s eyes, Lenore knew she would deny her nothing.

The Journey of “Free, a Novella” by Felicia Denise

Update! 😉

Felicia Denise, Author

Lennie's letter

It’s been a year since we first met Lenore Porter.

We’ve read her words, watched her struggles, and felt her pain.

As Lennie attempts to make peace with the past, she questions her own motivations, and her own heart, determined to give her three sons the best life possible. She’s sure didn’t always make the best decisions, but she made them for the right reasons.

Today’s installment is short, but it’s an insight into a side of Lennie not yet explored during this online journey – Lennie, the woman.

While it is short, it is not the end. Tomorrow, Friday, May 12th, the cover for “Free, a Novella” will be revealed. Free is coming to an ereader near you soon!
