In a quest to always untie the knots in my life, I often respond to the call of God for me to step outside of my comfort zone. One of those very poignant moments was in 2021, when already faced with several of life's challenges, God required me to once again step out on faith and trust "The Plan and The Process".
My father, with whom I had an already complicated relationship, was diagnosed with terminal gastric cancer. Was I going to step up or step out? Already feeling a plethora of emotions, I embarked upon this journey of reinjury, renewal, revisitation and restoration.
Travel with me through the lessons of love, life and forgiveness for self and others where I learned to set boundaries and operate in authenticity, enabling relational knots to be untied. One step closer to becoming "Knot" free, I was humbled by being chosen to explore and share this experience of humanity through yet another transition of life.

A Life Without Crumbs - A daughters Journey through
a Path to Forgiveness
In this book, “A Life Without Crumbs”, Minister Stacey L Tidwell takes you on the life’s journey of her late father who truly believed that he lived a life without meaningful impacts on others (good, bad and indifferent). She walks the reader through the path of imprints left and lessons learned around actions, inactions, forgiveness, redemption and the value of time. The premise that "its never too late" to make an imprint, resonates throughout each chapter with lessons on how even the most minute interactions create lasting crumbs - traceable through words, behaviors and thoughts. Having the opportunity to leave no words unspoken, no thoughts unprocessed and no hurt unhealed, Stacey and her father took advantage of a time that most people will never have and discovered more in common creating a connection that was never believed could exist between them. Travel with her as she guides you through her personal experiences, her father's revelations and how tracing the crumbs led to the change in trajectory of the future him, her and generations to come. Although their crumbs may not be the exact crumbs of others, she believes that others will gain insight and inspiration, just as she did, from recognizing impactful imprints that have in reality created "A Life Without Crumbs".
