Author J.M. Wright says she often found herself wandering alone in the past, as if she was lost in a desert. While she says these moments were mentally exhausting, they also turned out to be something more – a learning experience.

Wright invites readers to experience her journey and have one of their own in her new book “Crossing the Deserts of Life: My Spiritual Journeys” (published by AuthorHouse), which will be featured at the 2014 Illinois Library Association conference.

Wright says that there was a time when she trusted no one, not even God. She attributes this to being self-absorbed and selfish. She goes on to say that this selfishness is responsible for her being in such a lonely and desolate state for so long.

“There is a spiritual connection to our lives,” Wright says. “We can be a conqueror of the facets of life, if we look within.”

Throughout “Crossing the Deserts of Life,” Wright emphasizes the idea that her life was once a desert, with her book being “a personal reflection of a dead and arid part” of her life. Readers will watch as she finds peace through her realization that God has unconditional love for her.

“Nothing is so seriously bad that there cannot be victory over your life,” Wright says.
