God Whisperer, Near and Dear to My Heart
by Kimberley Troutte


Thank you for having me here at SlingWords!

I am celebrating the release of my new book from Astraea Press. God Whisperer is near and dear to her heart because it’s a personal love story.

I was blessed to be the mother of two amazingly wonderful boys who were born with different and super-rare, non-life-threatening challenges. My oldest was born with a rare eye-tracking condition that also played havoc with his balance. My youngest had perfect eyes but was born with an incomplete, deaf ear. No hole! When the surgeons at UCLA created an eardrum and canal and he was able to hear with both ears for the first time in his life, I wept with joy. The miracle was overwhelming and poured out onto the page.

While the book is pure fiction—the mother is not me, David is not my son, and I am happily married—there is a river of truth flowing through the pages. The worry a parent faces when her child is born with disabilities can be crushing. God Whisperer comes from being in that place when a mother realizes she is not good enough, strong enough, or smart enough to face the challenges ahead for her child. I think all parents feel this way to some degree, don't we?

The important thing I realized early on was to ask questions and educate myself. Also, everyone has some sort of failing. Nobody is perfect and we can all help one another. Writing the book was my way of helping.

God Whisperer is my gift of gratitude. I hope the book shows there is always hope, support and love.

To help others who are going through the trials my family faced, 10% of author royalties will be donated to the American Society for Deaf Children.
