Host Eric Howell Sharp interviews author, speaker, Evinda Lepins who shares: Life’s experiences have been my motivation for writing; and yet, as far back as sixth grade, I can remember turning homework into creative writing assignments, for example a report on the digestive system became this story of a character’s journey throughout the whole body and the discoveries she made along the way. But that was before my childhood got interrupted and all complicated with child sexual and physical abuse, followed by abandonment and disillusionment. Then, as I got older, and life became more difficult to meet on life’s terms, writing took a backseat and surviving took over.  Little did I know that the more I “survived,” the more junk I carried of unresolved issues. Thankfully, divine sovereignty caused me to run right into myself – that’s a funny picture if you think about it – and I stopped “just surviving” and I chose to examine the buried and unresolved issues in my life. Piece by piece, I began the unpacking process, and despite still being in the process, I am happy to say most of my bags are unpacked! I am married to a wonderful man.  We are a blended family with my 26-year-old son (who’s blessed us with 2 beautiful grand kids and his 22-year-old daughter. I could go on, but suffice it to say that my journey has been wrought with twists and turns, stomach-wrenching lows, and many incredible highs, but as I look back on the journey, I can honestly say I wouldn’t trade one twist, turn or even the free-falling lows, for it has led me to you, and to the opportunity to touch your life with fiction for your mind, body and soul.
