All my written work, books, stories, and poems.
Hello Fellow friends,
Well, I am home now but I had a wonderful time with my man and his lovely family. I learned so much about him and all of them. We did so much with and without his family. My man and went on dates and walks. It was really nice. I got him some shirts he liked and some collector books he wanted. He got me a Totoro purse and wallet and some lotion and body spray too. It is not about the things, to me, the gifts are special because they are from the one I love! As for the rest of the family, they have to wait for Christmas…
When we spent time with his family as well as doing outings and everyday tasks.. We didn’t go to the beach or Disneyland but we did go to Medieval Times! I hadn’t been there since I was thirteen for my friend’s birthday in Florida. Here are some of the pictures I took. I hope they don’t mind me sharing them.
One weekend we watched movies and games. I even exchanged birthday and Christmas gifts as well with him. One of the weekends we had an outdoor bbq, watched a movie on a projector and did some rock painting, played soccer and other outdoor games.
I really enjoyed the one on one time with his mom too. We had a nice heart to heart talks. She even gave me a very sweet heartfelt gift from Starbucks as a surprise one night! It is special for so many reasons. It has all the state specialty emblems, I collect cups, it was a surprise, it showed she cared and was thinking of me. I wish I could have done so much more for them! I wish I had got to know his dad more tho too.
I stayed for almost three weeks. When I had free time alone worked on writing my books in progress.
I can’t believe it is only a few days from Thanksgiving!! I look forward to coming back there often. It helps that the man I love has family in California. I totally felt at home with his family and in California. I was really nervous about staying with them but I think it went well. There was so much more I had wanted to do with them and for them. I miss them all so much. His family is my family as well. That’s how I feel in my heart. I never felt uncomfortable or out of place. I just wish I could bring them all back with me! It would sure make things easier for us all. California is one of the few states that I wouldn’t mind moving to. Though I am unable to take permanent residence there mainly because of my Medical specialists and health care requirements.
I can not believe I had to say goodbye. It really broke my heart. I cried so much. I keep telling myself it is not over tho and we will be together again soon. The most important thing is I have so many wonderful memories from this trip and all the trips I have been on this year. I can not express how much I appreciate everyone and everything. To me making memories and spending time with the ones you care about is more important than anything else. Remember to take time for your loved ones and friends as well! I feel so refreshed and drained at the same time.
Stay safe and God blesses you today and Always!!

How are you today? I am doing well. I am on my third leg of the trip. I left Arizona a few days ago. It was awesome! Our hotel was one of the best I have ever stayed at. It was huge, with a restaurant, a cafe, sports activities, several pools, gardens and in a fun area. I adored the whole place and I hope to go back one day! We also went to a cactus garden and went to a butterfly garden and an aquarium with some insects and reptiles. It was my first time seeing a rainbow chameleon and poison dart frogs in person! I Loved all of it. Just wish I could have got to the titanic museum too.
Exciting right! It is a bit nostalgic for me living out of a suitcase once again for the past two months. Just like I did when I first moved in 2011. As I have been doing so for almost two months with only a week and a half at home in-between. I have been making sure to work on some of my books during my downtime… I’ve been mainly switching between two main books. When I get stuck on one I work on the other. Apparently, I am not the only writer who does this. I see the challenge of re-writing what I lost as part of a character challenge for myself. I am very determined to get some books done as soon as I possibly can. 🤔 I was gonna participate in NaNo. Obviously, I can’t this year. Funny last NaNoWriMo I was traveling as well… Maybe next year I can join in NaNo. Here is the link if you are interested in participating, or curious about what it is. Good luck, break a pen! https://www.nanowrimo.org/
Why am I traveling you ask? Why not? I love to travel and enjoying time with people. Life keeps everyone very busy but is important to enjoy life. If you are lucky enough to get a chance to spend time with people, especially those you care about you shouldn’t pass that up. Most of the best Christmas movies are about busy people not taking time to enjoy life and time with their loved ones. The main Characters then remember what was most important to them. Then a Christmas miracle happens or Santa gets involved and things get better. If you were in a Christmas movie what would the storyline be? To answer the question seriously as to why am I traveling is mainly because I had the chance to help my sister😀 and to go on the trip I had planned for in July. 🥰 I want to make the most of life and not pass up any opportunities! I do not want to have regrets in my life.
I was planning on doing some live videos along the way, but honestly, I get shy on camera and stumble over my words. So like the picture says I write better then I talk. I am grateful that I have met some awesome people! I love how everyone is unique and awesome in their own way.😄 Along with having new experiencing and seeing new places as well! I met a pretty famous author without knowing it until now. That was pretty neat. As I say famous people are just normal people too.
This is where I enjoyed several days outside listing to birds and getting inspired.
Grackle birds make the most unique beautiful sounds. I really enjoyed spending my mornings and afternoons with them. We have black ones here but now one believed me. I will try and take a picture of one and post it later. They are my second favorite bird besides vultures.
Grackles are quite the efficient foragers, and will even steal food from less savvy birds. They are omnivores and will eat anything from bugs to minnows to different types of berries and seeds. Of course, these birds aren’t snobby at all and will snatch human food at a moment’s notice. Common Grackles are blackbirds that look like they’ve been slightly stretched. They’re taller and longer tailed than a typical blackbird, with a longer, more tapered bill and glossy-iridescent bodies. Grackles walk around lawns and fields on their long legs or gather in noisy groups high in trees, typically evergreens.
Stay safe and God blesses you today and Always!!

It has been a while. I know I missed you. Did you miss me? I have been taking a break from the online world for the most part. Other than some side projects, which I will get into later. I have been really bad and been on facebook more than this blog. I have a lot of backdating to do. (meaning I need to move things I wrote here.) Let us be real. There is a lot I need to update and change here and elsewhere. I know not everyone uses Facebook, Instagram or social media. Thus, I will be working a lot on that and my books.
Moving on to the point of this post, I did a vlog! A video blog… I have been practicing with a side project which I will tell you about next time. Right now tho I would like to share this with you. This came from my heart and was really personal. It took several tries to finish and I was really nervous. Here it is from the other blog and ministry I am doing with people:
Every year or on my other blog I reflect on my life and I write about the growth I have been through. This year I decided to do something different based on the ministry we are getting off the ground. I did my third official Vlog, where I am on camera speaking to you all. I was really nervous. I pray that me stepping out in faith really bless you all. I love you! You Matter! Don’t forget that…
Here are the references she mentioned in the video.

✞ Hebrews 13:5-6 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. “What will man do to me?” (New American Standard Version)

Wow, I just got my first official book review. I am so amazed that someone wanted to read it let alone review it. The way she describes my book God Supplies and Miracles Happen really moved me. I am so touched. Thanks, Amiee Ann for your interest! I posted it below but you should go read it on her site along with all the other awesome reviews she has done.

“God Supplies And Miracles Happen is a poignant, moving and inspirational memoir that will take readers on a thought-provoking journey while entertaining them at the same time. God Supplies And Miracles Happen is written by author Amy Jane Sandberg and Amy throughout God Supplies And Miracles Happen will take her readers on the journey of her life from past to present. The journey the reader will encounter is at times heartbreaking because of Amy’s condition and the events that significantly impacted her life however it is also an uplifting book in which Amy will make you smile thanks to her positive outlook and inspiring passages. If you are a reader who is looking to read a memoir that is unlike anything you have read before and a memoir that is the perfect combination of inspiration, fact, and poignancy then God Supplies And Miracles Happen is the book for you and should not be missed.
God Supplies And Miracles Happen is written by the incredible Amy Jane Sandberg and in her book she shares her story and the many pivotal moments in her life. Amy ‘is the third person to have her heart completely re-built after being born with Truncus Arteriosus’ and in her book she shares all about this as well as the grace of God. Throughout the book, Amy will share how she had three strokes, has been in two comas and so much more and her story is incredibly inspirational and should not be missed book lovers.
God Supplies And Miracles Happen is a poignant, moving, and compelling piece of nonfiction that will help, inspire and captivate its readers from the very start until the very end. God Supplies And Miracles Happen is an influential, powerful book because it deals with the topic of Truncus Arteriosus and strokes and the subsequent emotions/impacts because of them. I believe that God Supplies And Miracles Happen will be the perfect read for those that have a heart condition or even have survived a stroke, disorder, condition or illness because Amy, although brutally honest about how she felt, still manages to inspire and inject positivity into the story. However, those that do not have a disorder, condition or illness will equally be able to enjoy the book and take away something from it thanks to the author’s wisdom and bright outlook on life.
God Supplies And Miracles Happen is an exceptional book not only for the author’s candor but also the information she has so expertly laced throughout the book. The information will help readers better understand Truncus Arteriosus and strokes and how it can affect your life physically and emotionally, and I believe that is really important because sadly these topics are not commonly discussed but they need to be so that no person ever feels alone.
Amy Jane Sandberg is a remarkable person for two reasons; the first is because she is honest and brave to write her story and the second is because she is an exceptionally talented author. Amy’s impeccable writing is a joy to read and flows beautifully throughout so that the reader will feel compelled to read non-stop. Amy is a pure literary talent, and so I applaud her for being so brilliant!
Overall God Supplies And Miracles Happen is an this insightful, informative, inspiring book and I would say if you are a reader who is interested in the topic of stokes and heart conditions and coming out the other side, then this book is for you and so God Supplies And Miracles Happen gets five stars from me!
