Conversation from a fan

Message from mother of a new young fan: My son wanted me to tell you, he loves your book. He asked me, “Mom is it ok if I read it again?” My response was, “Of course, it’s yours – read it all you want!” He goes on to say, “You have to hear this, so […]

You never know what’s in store – GRWC

What an interesting day! It started out before sunrise Saturday. I was drinking my first cup of coffee when the windows illuminated a brilliant pinkish red color – Uh oh, I thought. Red skies in the morning, sailors warning. My mother’s voice echoed in my head. This was a bad omen. Is this going to […]

A Blessed Memorial Day

I feel the same way!  I work very hard […]

Be a Good You and Let Them Through

The other day I was stuck in traffic, construction traffic, with no shoulders, no turn lanes and then came the train.  Cars were backed up as far as the eye could see and we waited… And waited. Finally the train ended, the gates went up and the traffic started flowing – slowly. As my side […]

Count Your Blessings

  When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed, When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done. – Someone said “I count my blessings everyday” in a conversation the other day and it got me thinking.
