Carol Louise Sakwi was born on the Peguis Indian Reserve in Manitoba, Canada. Raised in Beaconia, Manitoba, she eventually left home to work in Beausejour and then Winnipeg, where she met and married her husband, Helmut. Together they raised two children. Since 2001, they have lived in Seven Sisters Falls on an acre of land, where they enjoy the peace and quiet, campfires, and the beauty of nature. Carol fills her time with working as a Health Care Attendant to seniors, volunteering, journaling, gardening, sewing, and cheering on the Winnipeg Jets.
"Masterfully written, this memoir is a must read? giving hope to
all who are living with depression, anxiety and seeking answers
about significance. Cadjo invites us into her pain, but does not
leave us in the darkness as she holds onto the Good Shepherd's hand
through her valley experiences. I have personally been touched and
deeply moved by this book, not only as Cadjo's former pastor, but
also as a fellow traveler toward healing from abuse. ?God never
promised us an easy journey in this world only the presence of His
love through His Son and through people He puts along our way. I
thank God for bringing Cadjo (Carol) into our lives."
--Rev. Greg Gaensler, Calvary Bible Church, Smiths Falls, Ontario
"Carol's book is both raw and real. As you read through her
journey please be sensitive to the incredible vulnerability
throughout. I consider it a privilege to have been one of the first
to read her story."
--Rev. Jay Lafontaine, Whiteshell Baptist Church, Seven Sisters Falls, Manitoba
