The title for this book is taken from the fourth chapter of the Book of Joshua. The Israelites had crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land and God commanded that they take twelve stones from the river as a memorial of what He had done for them. This is the author's memorial of what God has done for her.
Twelve Stones was written for anyone who has an addiction to overcome. Kay's primary challenge and addiction has been alcoholism, but there were others to conquer also. Through years of trial and error, she discovered that Jesus Christ is the only way to victory over any addiction. In a collection of essays written during a two year period of her recovery walk, without sugarcoating, she freely relays the struggles, tears, fears, and the failures. But there are successes too, and there is no mistaking the joy and the peace of God that she experiences along the way. Come on that journey with her. Learn from her mistakes and benefit from her successes and this "...peace of God that passeth all understanding..." (Philippians 4:7) can be yours too.
Kay lives in New Mexico with her husband of 45 years (though they will finally be moving back to Texas upon her husband's retirement). They have three children, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. She has a degree in Psychology from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas and has enjoyed three very different careers: accounting, writer/publisher, and substance abuse counselor. She is now planning to concentrate her time and efforts on her spiritual life, her family, her church, and her writing. (If you want to hear God laugh, just tell Him your plans.)
