I have read your book “Pain: The Challenge and the Gift” and I am prompted to truly praise you for such rare heart rendering revelation.  Your book is a Journey of Recovery.  I feel privileged to read your wholesome message.

The beautiful spirit of this author shines through in meditations and real life events. She lives fully and thinks deeply in spite of obstacles that rise up to block her way. I found the book inspiring and entertaining.


Dr. Natalie Jones Kreutzer

For those who are ready to heal their lives. This book helps us find our true path through God’s redirections, and thus out of the pain comes a gift.


Dr. Bernie Siegel

Author of Love, Medicine & Miracles

But your book is alive! It’s like a blood infusion, life-giving. It’s amazing. Since reading your book I’m waking up like a plant in spring as I read it. God put on you the energy to help others.

A sensitive mix of poetry, prose, and confession. Marti Matthews seeks blessing in the paradox of grace. She knows that gift is always hidden in tragedy, and her words give hope to those who despair in the midst of life. A book for those who want to give up.

About Marti Matthews

I write for both children and adults. 

My love of nature and joie de vivre are large parts of my inheritance and weave in and out of all I write. Finding the gift in the difficult is an ongoing theme for me. Learning how to live in a healthy satisfying way is my passion, and the desire of my heart is to share what I’ve learned with others.
