Awakening to Beauty in Our Midst - the Book

Once upon a time, a few years ago after the passing of my dad, I wrote a book.  Never in a million years would I have thought that I would self-publish a book.  However, when creativity strikes in all of its various forms, it does one good to listen and follow the promptings.  Awakening to Beauty in Our Midst is a series of testimonies where I share how God worked in the most beautiful ways in my life, through the hard.  I was just beginning to realize and articulate into words the connection between creativity, faith, healing, and coping.  Below you will find my free eBook version to download.  In addition to the free download, you will find a few excerpts from the book as well as other posts on this website that discuss chronic illness, faith, and creativity. May they encourage and bless you on your journey.  

"Do you go through the trials of life still searching for beauty? Even amidst chronic illness, debilitating pain, and grief, Melanie Fagan insists there is still hope, healing, and peace. “What if I told you the noticing is as meaningful as air; that we’re constantly invited into a deeper communion with our Creator?"

Join Melanie as she takes you on a journey of faith where the Lord led her through some of the hardest circumstances by transforming them into moments of grace and beauty.

Awakening to Beauty in Our Midst guides you through ten key steps using story, scripture, and prayer that will spark your creative spirit in a solid Biblical way.

In each step, you may discover a calm peacefulness, and purpose within your soul; altering the way in which you cope and honor God with your, your struggles, and your gifts. 

Take the journey of claiming the Joy of the Lord as your strength and guide through whatever life brings your way."
