You can let the life and the family you were born into dictate the definition of your very being, regardless of what you do or do not have, or, with grit, self-sufficiency and self-reliance, you can rise above your circumstances, charter your own course and change your life, all the while empowering others to do the same. -Elise Crawford

S. troops were sent to prevent the South Vietnamese government from collapsing, during election week the year the Voting Rights Act was signed into congress, the year Kelloggís introduced Pop Tarts, and the year that the first close up photographs of Mars were taken.

untitled complete autobiography
It is my hope that my complete autobiography will speak to your heart; and that if you happen to be facing a challenging situation, my struggles are just enough for you to relate to, to seek hope from, and encourage you to keep going forward and not to give up. Above all, if sharing my story makes a difference in just one personís life, then my unfortunate and convoluted journey was not in vain.

A Promise Kept
Originally I thought my story, A Promise Kept, would help those affected by tragic loss and based its existence upon that theme, hiding behind my belovedís murder and putting his story in the forefront. Empowered by the reviews my story has received, I learned that it was much more than what I had intended it for; that it was written for a broader audience, broader than grief and broader than faith.; and that it is not about my beloved, but about me, my struggles and fears of an uncertain future in the aftermath of his murder. And so, I am currently writing the first half of my autobiography. Please read more about it in my library under complete autobiography.
