I am also giving a nod to a very wise lady today, Dorothy Ruppert. Here's a little bit about the lady and her book God Placed Her in My Path - Lessons Learned from the Furnace of Bipolar Disorder. You can purchase it here or on Dorothy's website here.

Isn't she just lovely?!
Author Bio:

Dorothy Ruppert has spent 43 years advocating for the mentally ill and their families. She is a retired Chief Executive Officer of a non-profit organization and the former owner of three small businesses. Dorothy now spends her time as a writer and an inspirational speaker. She is currently working on her second book, a collection of short readings to inspire people who cope with situations that are beyond their control.


God Placed Her in My Path - Lessons Learned from the Furnace of Bipolar Disorder by Dorothy Ruppert is an inspirational, heart-wrenching true story of a mother advocating for her daughter during a time when doctors did not believe a child could suffer from bipolar disorder. This book will speak truth and bring hope to those who experience a brain disorder and to those who walk alongside them. It serves to educate and break the stigma of mental illness, which is rapidly increasing in the world today.
God Placed Her in My Path is strongly recommended for all who want to learn more, but especially for educators, social workers, and extended family members of persons coping with a brain disorder.

Now, on to the blog party and our regularly scheduled post of blogs you'll love!

  1. Thanks for sharing so many blog and book sites! :)

  2. It is interesting that you mention Dorothy Ruppert. Earlier this week, one of my husband's cousins committed suicide after a lifetime of suffering from mental illness. He leaves a mother trying to caretake his ailing father. What a sad situation this is and we do not know what is going to happen to the father now. Many people do not realize the toll mental illness takes on families and they deserve so much support than they get.

    1. It's so sad to hear about a loved one dying. My heart goes out to your husband. Mental illness is a grossly misunderstood animal. Thank you for your lovely comment.


Play nice and have fun. If you're a jerk, I won't publish your comment. My blog. My rules. Thanks for taking the time to chat at me!
