   The author began writing her story six years ago.  Her only goal was to preserve a family history for her children and grandchildren.  Their experiences were that of a typical southern family, laced with bliss and dotted with more than a few struggles which she calls blisters.

   Then, in March of 2002, a dense fog swallowed the Interstate 75 where her husband and son were traveling, causing a tragic accident.  They were both killed that morning. Thus began her journey down a pathway of loneliness and despair.

   In the long days, months, and years that followed, she recounts the enormity of a sorrow that threatens her grip on faith.  She defines the hard and unreasonable process of grieving two loved ones at the same time.  You will be inspired by the strength she recovers, as she feels God come alongside as her rescuer.  He sent help from every direction.  And finally, she learned to fully rely on God, because He taught her to.  

   Now it is her desire that the book will help people with hurting hearts find peace and  encouragement, and guide them to take sanctuary in the Savior who supports and comforts her.

   NO difficulty is beyond God's healing touch.

About the author (2007)

   Why would anyone begin writing a book in the September of their life; especially if that person had only one year of college, no journalism training, and doesn't even own a dictionary?

   Noma Welch was born and raised in the Deep South.  She grew up in the 50's/60's in a home that was very safe and stable; not one of great wealth, but one of abundant love.  At 18 years old she married into another special family, and began another remarkable journey.  Her desire to share some of her happy memories with her children prompted her to begin writing her story.  It was a slow process, and she dealt with more than a few interruptions during the course.  She never imagined the turn of events that would forever change her life and the outcome of her book.  A tragic accident turned her memoirs into a diary of distress.  With the help of a Great God, she muddles her way through the darkness and back into the sunlight, or should I say His Son-light.

   Noma has always had a special wit and talent for writing.  It was always easier for her to express herself with written words.  What she lacks in impressive credentials, she makes up for with enthusiasm and passion.

   Noma lives in North Georgia.  Her family and friends can enjoy the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains from her front porch.  She lives near her two daughters and five grandchildren, who continue to fill her life with "Bliss."  She is a very active Christian and serves Murray County Baptist Association as WMU Director.  She enjoys traveling and loves shopping with her sister.
