About LC Helms
Who are you and where do you belong? Have life's bumps and curves reshaped you into someone you no longer recognize?
Do you struggle with anxiety and depression, feeling invisible although there are people are around you?
As life presents itself, heartaches come and go; disappointments begin to tell us who we are.
Are you ready to discover the you who has somehow disappeared? The you who needs to wake to live, to love, and feel the joy that life wants to give?
Join me on a soul journey. A quest of discovering who you are, what you need, and how to become whole again.
This discovery of the self will not be easy; it will require strength of heart, patience and acceptance, a willingness to love all that you are.
Dear one, you have these skills inside you. They only wait to be discovered.
--You are a separate soul from those around you. Breathe and set yourself apart. Begin the journey to rediscover who you are today, for tomorrow is never promised.
This quest might be long and arduous, and truly painful at times. But along the way you will discover who you really are and finally learn to love yourself.
In learning to love yourself, you will begin to truly love others--without walls but inside healthy boundaries.
Through this heartfelt quest joy is waiting. Hope waves you onward. The awareness of who you really are begs you to begin.
Will you follow me toward home? To that place of inner peace where there is true acceptance of the self? I pray you have the desire.
"I used to see myself in the reflection of your light. Now I see the image of myself forming through the light in my own eyes."--LC Helms
I grew up with a love for books. It all started with my mother who read beautiful stories to me every night. I loved getting lost inside the written word and began writing when I was twelve years old.
By the time I had my first child I had published in trade magazines, poetry anthologies, and had written a first novel, all under the pseudonym Carol Lorin. But life happened and the journey I was experiencing didn’t have time for words. I never pursued the publishing of that first novel, and strangely, can’t even find the manuscript now.
Years later my son became a science-fiction author and wouldn’t stop nagging until I put pen to paper again. I did, and my love for words was reborn. I haven't stopped writing since. Now, I use words and face fear through adventure as I find my way back home. I enjoy crafting short stories, writing blogs, and am editing my second, first novel. I also want to live my own stories with the grit and tenacity I give to my characters. In becoming a whole person, separate and alive in heart.
My hopes are that readers will fall in love with their own journey and self-discovery and gain insight into their own struggles as they travel with me and overcome fear. Most importantly, I hope to leave an indelible truth of hope and faith in God with my readers and, through his light and love, help others find their own way home..
