‘Her Life Counts’ is a very special book to me as it is written from the life and perspective of someone I know well and honour immensely.
The author, Vera had to discover this truth for herself through the many battles and challenges she herself faced and also as she walked through the deepest valleys alongside her beautiful daughter Tori.
The profound truth and life lessons encapsulated within these pages will encourage you to push through the hard places and to know that without a shadow of a doubt that you are so very important to God and that He is holding you every step of the way because your life counts too.

Many years have passed since I first encountered Vera. We are part of the same church and so our paths naturally crossed. In those days, it was a very insecure and fearful woman who was reaching out for hope and a sense of destiny for her life. Today, Vera is a transformed woman. This is her journey, her story.
Writing a book to share with others takes great vulnerability especially when the journey of her life contains personal traumatic experiences. She is willing to be raw and open with the hope that you will experience life and hear the message clearly that ‘Her Life Counts’.
I love Vera’s tenacity that has been displayed over and over not to let fear and hopelessness be the driver of her life. To know Vera is to love and respect her. I know because I have walked alongside Vera when Tori was fighting for her life, over and over again, I watched her consistently lean into God and trust Him for the moment and for the future.
As I was reading through Her Life Counts, the words, courage, faith, hope, love, peace, dreams, beauty and joy resonated off the pages. This is such an encouraging message to bring in a world that is often driven by unreal expectations, frustrations and pain.
May hope be ignited, strengthened or renewed in you through her story.
