Today is the day!

Carrie Wilson Link’s long awaited book, Wil of God, is released.

“Wil of God is the story of a tightly wound special needs mother who comes undone, puts herself back together, and falls in love with her imperfect life.”

That’s a blurb from someone in the know.

Good blurb, right?

Oh, okay…it’s my blurb. I admit it.

I met Carrie at a writing workshop years ago. We bonded over our special needs parent status. Our children are very different and require completely different parenting but there was an immediate respect between us about the sacredness of our unexpected vocations.

I’ve had the honor to bear witness to the unfolding of Carrie’s story (at least the last seven years of it), and I’ve read her book in many of its phases. It is delightful. I am so very deeply and profoundly happy for her as Wil of God┬álaunches. It is a story that will lift you up, and make you better for having read it.

Carrie is a beautiful writer. A steadfast and devoted mother. A spiritual seeker. A vital thread in her community. She is a teacher to her core.

To paraphrase her son Wil, she is, “the right kind of woman.”

She’s also the right kind of friend.

Congratulations Care!

May your book find it’s way into the hands of all who will appreciate it. May there be many, many, many who open to receive Wil of God.

  1. Oh, I can’t wait. And a blurb from you means it’s fantastic!

    I love what your blurb says about the magic that happens when we open ourselves to giving and receiving love: her excitement and joy become your excitement and joy. It all multiplies. All because you met, opened up and shared. Yay, universe! I will definitely look for this book.

    I found her blog through you, ages ago. I have silently stalked (hope you don’t mind, Carrie) and I can see why the two of you are now lifelong friends. You are both truly amazing people. Love & success to you both.
