One Slender Thread: My Book!

Ya'll, it is hard to even type this without feeling a little out-of-body, but here I go: My very own book came in the mail today! It is titled, One Slender Thread, and was crafted over two years - years of exploring and threading, growing and reading, typing and tailoring this stack of stories into what it is today - and now we are just weeks away from a finished product. I cannot wait to share it with all of you soon!

Here's a brief synopsis of what One Slender Thread is all about: 
Here's one of the only things I know for sure: You have a story to tell. And so do I. For the past two years, I have spent endless hours writing my story, searching for even one slender thread - of truth, of hope, of my true self, of God - in the midst of all the loss and the longing, all the mess and the mundane, that can fill our lives. I yearn for the Divine; I yearn for more connection with those I love, for more freedom from self-imposed expectations, for more life lived from a whole heart. I want to grab hold of this life, to make the most of my days. And I want to do it with courage and intention. Telling my story has been the pathway to the life I’ve always yearned for. Today, I invite you to join me!
Eek! That's my book! (thanks for indulging my giddiness for a moment)

A few people have gotten a sneak peak of it already, and here is what they had to say:

As I read, I realized that Noelle’s story is mine, and likely yours too. It is a story of being ruled by and then letting go of perfectionism. Of trying to numb oneself from facing pain directly. Of somehow finding hope amidst heartbreak. This book is a treasure, and I will cherish it!
from the foreword by Anna Whiston-Donaldson,
NYT Bestseller of the book, Rare Bird

Noelle's One Slender Thread is courageous and compelling. She bravely explores deep questions of faith and family, betrayal and redemption, even when she must surrender all that she once held as truth. Noelle honors her life's darkness and light, and all the luscious gray between. Through her fearless seeking, she emboldens us to examine our own hidden depths. Healing waits in these honest, heartfelt pages. Don't miss this one.
Amanda Fall, author & creator of The Phoenix Soul

As a writer and spiritual director, I often use the language of "following the thread" to illustrate our search for the Sacred. Noelle's own search for "one slender thread" and her emphasis on the value of knowing and telling our stories serves as an invitation to dive deep into the waters of the soul where the true self and the Divine can always be found. With her own vivid storytelling, coupled with writing prompts to begin telling your own stories, you'll soon find that when when you follow the thread stitched throughout this moving book your life will never be the same.
