About “Walking My Mother” Home by Ardis A. Nelson:

“Ardis is an amazing person who writes with amazing clarity and depth.”

 Steve Arterburn, author, founder New Life Ministries and host of New Life Live, America’s #1 Christian counseling program

“Ardis tells a poignant story of her growing up years with a mentally ill mother.  She describes her own transformation through her encounters with her Mother in ways that challenge, encourage, and inspire us to take the same risks, to make similar sacrifices, and to experience the same joy she experienced in her journey.   Read her story and experience it for yourself.”

  • WELCOME to my site!

    I'm an author, writer, speaker, mentor & mom. I've struggled to find my voice all my life as I lived in the shadows of a mother with mental illness. Thankfully that was not the legacy that she handed down to me. It took a lot of recovery and deep healing work to rise above it.

    I am thankful to God for Making Me Bold in the process. Now I use my writing and speaking voice to help others on their journey to turn healing into hope.
