Entry Submitted for Consideration in “I Am Subject” Anthology

I Am Subject by Diane DeBella, a memoir

First Edition of I Am Subject: Sharing Our Truths to Reclaim Our Selves

I Am Subject: Sharing Our Truths to Reclaim Our Selves by Diane DeBella is a memoir that combines Diane’s history with the words and experiences of other writers to examine the issues that perplex contemporary women. This work conveys women’s experiences by weaving together memoir, literary texts and criticism, and student reflection.

Process for the Upcoming Anthology

Ms. DeBella is now in the process of selecting stories for another edition of I Am Subject and I was pleased to receive an invitation to submit a story for consideration.

As an exciting part of the process, Ms. DeBella has posted my entry, The Glorious Gift of the Unexpected, on her blog.

Also, please check out the other posts about my journey and experiences.

It’s been a struggle to figure out how to tell my story. in 2012 an experience occurred that compelled me to try. In 1998 I had an experience that was profound, but I didn’t know what to do with it. In 2002, another. When I left my marriage in 2004, my life shifted dramatically, but I kept dismissing everything that was happening because that’s what I was taught to do, to not believe that what was happening to me was coming from God, until 2012, then an experience happened that I couldn’t ignore.

Since April 2014, a couple of remarkable experiences have occurred that are helping to show some of what I am experiencing. I believe what I have to share in my memoir will help shift how people see God and that shift will have an impact on unnecessary harm that’s being inflicted on many people around the world. I understand there many people who now follow spiritual concepts that revolve around how we think— and they involve ideas that we don’t need to think, we need to just be; that we can think our way to becoming rich; and that all anyone needs is love—and I will be sharing my thoughts about all of that soon.

    • Thank you! When I got the notice, I didn’t realize that she was going to post the entries on her blog as well, so it’s wonderful to be able to share that now. Decisions will be made in early July, so the wait isn’t too long! Fingers crossed!!
