Kathleen Pooler is a retired Family Nurse Practitioner and writer. Her memoir, "Ever Faithful to His Lead: My Journey Away From Emotional Abuse" and work-in-progress sequel, "Hope Matters: A Memoir" are about how the power of hope through her faith in God helped her to transform, heal and transcend life’s obstacles and disappointment—domestic abuse, divorce, single parenting, loving and letting go of an alcoholic son, cancer and heart failure—to live a life of joy and contentment.
