Making Believers; Connect to the Light within… is a fictional/spiritual story about a mother and daughter that create and manifest in their lives unconditional love for one another. It is in the simple act of Amanda writing in her journal┬ádaily to release that which she did not understand in her life; whether through poems or heartfelt entries eventually becomes her passion. The written word at times read in a book or written from her own life experiences comforted her always.

Amanda loves her mom Gracie and spends years witnessing her in and out of mental institutions. This is Amanda ‘s version of what she is witness to.


Their faces the same,

As they look about!

They are in a room,

And can’t get out!

Their minds begin to shout!

No one listens.

No one hears.

There is sadness everywhere,

Then you see a tear.

They have nowhere to go,

Their world is so slow!

They only exist.

And never insist.
