Your first reaction when reading the writings of award-winning author Kitty Chappell, or listening to her as an international speaker, may be surprise. Surprise that an overcomer of a violently abusive childhood exudes such a transparent zest for life—comparing it with a joyful dance on the tips of her toes.

We’ve all discovered that where there is life, there is pain. As we struggle to gain coping skills to help us endure, survive, and overcome our past and present pains, who among us is satisfied with clichés—sugar-coated admonitions to “just pray and the pain will go away”? Kitty Chappell is an accomplished “where the rubber meets the road” international speaker who offers meat for the soul—something the mind can chew on. She is an award-winning author of three non-fiction books, I Can Forgive If I Want To: Forgiving the Unforgivable, (an update of her original book Sins of a Father: Forgiving the Unforgivable), Good Mews: Inspurrrrational Stories for Cat Lovers, which contains true stories of how God enlightened her as she tried to train her cats, and her recently-released eBook, Friendship – When It’s Easy and When It’s Not, available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple. She is also the author of numerous articles, devotionals, editorials, and poems. Her inspiration and humor has encouraged audiences throughout the US and in Poland.
