What’s the book about?
Through her blog and talking to other women, Dolly knows many people struggle to be who God created them to be. Like you, Dolly has wondered if she was too ordinary to make a difference.
She wants to encourage you if you might also struggle with anxiety and people-pleasing.
She believes no one is “ordinary” because each person is created to live with God in love and together create an extraordinary life.
Dolly has lived and wrestled with the soul care practices and questions she writes about in 7 Days of Soul Care: A Guide to Letting God Do the Extraordinary with Your Ordinary.
In 1999, she prayed and asked God to show her how he created and designed her. She wearied of trying to fit her circle in the square expectation of certain key people. Can you relate?
God answered her prayer and led her on a surprising journey of self-discovery and a deeper experience of his love by taking her through some valley lows and mountain highs. And she wants others to know they can trust God with their journey of self-discovery and living into who God created them to be.
Because of her experiences, she believes in the power of God’s love and presence to transform and redeem brokenness into unexpected beauty. And she wants you to also experience that same transformation.
In 7 Days of Soul Care, Dolly encapsulated highlights of what she learned over the past 17 years, and what she continues to learn and practice in deeper ways in the second half of life.

Dolly shares her struggles with lies about self-worth and the lies that were revealed to her about what she believed about God. She comes to know how God delights in us, welcomes us in love and forgiveness, and longs to hear from us. The questions at the end of each day are soul-searching and practical, and the prayers are so heartfelt. This book has enlightened, encouraged, and inspired me.” —Trudy via Amazon Reviews
