Kathie lingered in front of the mirror. Visually there were no signs of damage from the car accident yet she continued to stare at her reflection with bewilderment. IT was as though a stranger was looking back at her. Within seconds her life had been drastically altered as confusion, short-term memory loss, extreme sensitivity to audible and visual stimulus, and loss of concentration placed her in an unfamiliar and foreign world. The pathway ahead was obscured. The only thing visible? A "Detour" sign. Kathie's journey after acquiring a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury is personal yet her battles with frustration, failure, tears, heartache and grief are universal. However, her steadfast trust in the faithfulness of God the Father ultimately produced a surprising journey filled with promises, abundant living, a heart at peace and best of all the realization of her worth in His eyes. Simply because she is His child. Simply because she is "Kathie." May the content not produce hollow words but rather an astounding awareness of how precious you are to God. May you feel His presence, His power, and His peace as you journey with her through difficult valleys and glorious mountaintops. Before you reach the final page may you realize that circumstances and difficulties are no surprise to God. He has a specific purpose for every life, including yours. He will guide you, lead you and remain faithfully by your side because you are worthy in His eyes. "I have just finished your manuscript for the second time. The first time I read through quickly for content, etc. and was drawn to it again as I have wept and laughed and become involved with your words. You really have captured the essence of what it is like to experience a brain injury and how you, along with your faith, have overcome the daily difficulties presented in living with acquired brain injury."-Deborah Dee, BMT, FAMI, Executive Director, Powell River Brain Injury Society "This true story is told with openness and honesty. Your willingness to become vulnerable to the world of readers speaks of who you are-genuine and meek yet filled with the strength of God. You have allowed your injury to make you a channel of blessing to others. Your manuscript also provides a glimpse into the world of brain injuries. I would venture to say that most people have no idea of what takes place-emotionally, spiritually or physiologically-when a person sustains trauma to the brain. Your life and your writing bring glory to God." – Linda Wegner, Words of Worth About the Author: Kathleen (Kathie) Margaret Pritchard sustained a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury at the age of forty-one, thrusting her professional and personal life into chaos, midstream.
