Finding Peace....through the writings of Candy O'Donnell

We all need peace in our life... with busy schedules and challenging decisions we need encouraging words to help us find our way.  Candy O'Donnell has found a solution. With her three book series, we can learn to find our happiness, passion and compassion.

The first book of the series is Finding Your Happiness

How does one discover happiness?

After long bouts of unhappiness, I discovered something buried within me. What I kept buried deep inside me was joy and happiness. At times I did not deeply love myself and others, I did not love with compassion, or see myself as one with others. Unhappiness stems from our pain and suffering, but we can let go of unhappiness. This journey is not easy and after digging through the pain and fear, I found happiness.

What makes us really happy? What do we wake up every morning to do? The second book is Finding your passion.

What is your passion?
The deeper we go into who we are, the easier it is to find our passion. A passion is anything we love doing, celebrating, or hold near and dear to our heart. Do what you love. Your passion can be anything creative!

The third book is Finding Your Compassion.  How many of us are compassionate... I mean really compassionate toward others so when you hear of someone in need we don't do something about it to help them.


 Compassion is within us all, we just need to delve deeper to find it. When we have compassion for ourselves, everyone else falls into place. Understand how to be compassionate toward yourself and those around you.

When we water the seed of compassion, something miraculous takes place as love grows to greater heights and we find ourselves having compassion not only for those around us, but for any living thing.

All three books are full of tips and inspiring words to help us find what we are looking for....

Candy O’Donnell lives in California.

At the age of twelve, she wrote her first mini book, filled mostly with what took place with her mother and her long tedious bout with leukemia. It was a short story told as extra credit when she suffered a sprained ankle and had to be out of school for over two months. School officials refused to believe a word of what she had written until her grandmother, her guardian back then, entered the school with the truth. Everything she had written down was exactly what took place. Unfortunately, her mother succumbed to the disease.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in history and culture with graduate units in criminal justice. After living with her aunt and uncle for over five years, she wished to explore her uncle’s native heritage, and did so with vigor.

And a few fun Facts about these books!

1) I wanted to write these short books to enlighten others minds about how to discover what has been hidden within each of us. 

2) Each brought out something different within me, and I wanted to share this with others.

3) I personally enjoyed writing these short books for others. After hearing from readers how much information is within each, they feel the need to re-read them numerous times.

4) Non-fiction is one of the genres I will be writing more of and it is my desire for others to learn more about their Happiness, Passion, and Compassion!
