There once was a lovely girl who felt everything so deeply she thought she’d explode! When someone she loved experienced pain, it were as if her own heart had been stabbed. Her world turned upside down and it all seemed so cruel. And she felt love so intensely, surely there must be something wrong with her! If she let anyone know the depth of her heart wouldn’t they think her silly and childish? Fear of being misunderstood and rejected kept her bound up and silent.
But one day, the depth of her heart found words and her soul took flight!
A dear friend discovered Anah’s gift for writing and convinced her to start a blog. Shy and unsure, Anah agreed. Thus, Anah’s Song was born.
Anah (pronounced, aw-naw’) is actually a pen name to hide the true identity, at present, of a budding author. Anah comes from an ancient Hebrew word ענה, essentially meaning “to begin to speak, to respond, to sing.” It was used in a passage of scripture from Hosea 2:15, “And I will give her her vineyards from thence, the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there…”
So now, the girl is free! Her song has found voice and the music within her can be heard.
Anah’s Song is not merely a collection of narratives but a glimpse into the inner workings of the human heart. A soul unfurled. Sung from her Valley of Trouble, Anah’s Song allows you to enter through her door of hope.
My name is Tikvah Turwaithiel. May your life be forever changed and enriched, as was mine, when you listen to Anah’s Song.
