“A Place for Every . . . One: Finding My Place in a World That Is Not My Home” is an inspiring memoir that places hope in one’s heavenly home. “A Place for Every . . . One” is the creation of published author, Rose Gardunio, a proud mother of two who lives in Grand Junction, Colorado, with her husband of thirty-nine years.
Gardunio shares, “‘Have you ever wondered where you would be if you weren’t here?’ There, I had finally asked it!
Just as simply and easily, with no hesitation, she responded, ‘At my other grandma’s.’
It was not exactly the answer I was looking for, and it was then that I wondered if I were not truly different from most people! Not easily discouraged at that point in my life, I decided to ask another friend. We too had shared many lazy summer days growing up as next-door neighbors: reading under her apple tree, picking goodies from her garden, eating cherry tomatoes, which grew outside the greenhouse across the street, and making numerous trips to the candy store a block away. There was ample opportunity to talk and contemplate those things we were trying to figure out. Fortunately, Sandy was a bit deeper thinker than my cousin was, or perhaps I just phrased my question better. ‘Have you ever thought about if you weren’t here, if you’d never been born?’ Her response gave me hope.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Rose Gardunio’s new book is a prescient memoir addressing the questions that have haunted the author since childhood regarding one’s true home.
In the face of life’s hopelessness, Gardunio encourages the reader to take heart and set their eyes on their heavenly home.
Steve Harris shares, “The popularity of shows like Fixer Upper is partly due to the satisfaction people feel when they see something underappreciated and in disrepair become a showplace. But, remodeling is an ambitious process. It's messy, noisy, inconvenient and expensive. So, why do it? Because, if you survive the process, you get a new house!
In A Place for Every... One, Rose Gardunio walks you through the process of remodeling a life - her life - as Jesus renovates her from the inside out, one "room" at a time.
Gardunio fearlessly describes the rebuilding she needed. Her foundation had been shaken by multiple miscarriages and the SIDS death of her second child. Her ‘house’ was flooded with fear, darkened by deep depression, and cluttered with past hurts that left her feeling withdrawn, worthless and inadequate. Chapter by chapter, she candidly shares personal experiences that expose the roots of her problems and pain. As she does, you'll discover personal parallels - even if the milestones on your own journey are nothing like hers.
Along the way, you'll witness the demolition of old habits and destructive patterns. You'll learn to stop listening to damaging self-talk, recognize where your true value comes from, rebuild your sense of worth and find out that you really do "fit in." You'll discover ways to cope with unimaginable heartache, navigate through the fog of grief, climb out of the pit of depression, and hold onto hope when it seems out of reach.
As she leads this guided tour of her life, Gardunio presents a compassionate, confidence-building apologetic for the quiet, introverted people who have such valuable perspectives, yet rarely share them. Hats off to this brave lady for sharing herself so honestly in her informal, ‘BFFs-having coffee’ style. You'll come to think of her not just as an author, but a friend.”
