When Life Starts in the Middle
by Trudy Chiswell

A motivational memoir of God’s redemptive work in one woman’s life, When Life Starts in the Middle will inspire and energize readers who feel stuck, discouraged, or purposeless. Trudy Chiswell shares her journey from struggling with a poor self-image to being an enthusiastic adventurer of life. Through God’s miraculous healing and the motivating encouragement of various teachers, Trudy earned her grade twelve diploma at age forty-two and went on to attain a college diploma seven years later. At age sixty, she started her first business. She approaches her solo life as a journey of adventure with much travel thrown in. When Life Starts in the Middle is an inspiring story of faith, courage, and intentional living. A great read for all ages!

After decades of low self-esteem and a lack of confidence, Trudy Chiswell took the initial steps of turning her life around in her early forties. Graduating from grade twelve as an adult student, and then obtaining a college diploma, Trudy overcame her anxieties and a learning disability to excel in her academic program. At the age of sixty, she started her first business. Now enjoying “retirement” at seventy-five, Trudy remains a woman of courage, faith, and perseverance. She lives solo in Oak Bay, British Columbia, where she enjoys receiving visits from her children and grandchildren, who live in Ontario and Florida.
