Mildred “Millie” Francis Dubuisson Fontcuberta was a mother of seven, devoted wife, business woman, and faithful follower of Christ. She was born and raised in New Orleans and later married the boy next door. They started their family in Metairie and eventually moved to Mandeville, LA, putting down deep roots. Millie reveals her inward journey in this beautiful collection of her journals which span nearly forty years. In them, she pours out her heart and soul in prayers and poetry, recounting her life and love of God and family.
As a polio and cancer survivor, and with a life marked with family tragedies, Millie overcame her struggles through faith and devotion to the Lord Jesus and Blessed Mother Mary. Becoming a Third Order Lay Carmelite later in life, her Catholic roots are inspiring and uplifting in the outpouring of emotion and prayer contained in her writings.
