Please don't lose hope
I read this quote, “Where flowers bloom, so does hope.” So many people I know have been laid off, and are not sure when they will be back to work.

Where can you find the good today?

Where can you find the good today?
I know things feel scary and people are worried. I am too. I followed the guidelines and precautions and stayed home all weekend except for a 20-minute walk today and felt the weight of the news and social media posts with each step. As I walked though I noticed the sun was shining and the... Read more »

I recently read Mitch Albom’s new book The Next Person You Meet in Heaven, and have been thinking about it ever since.

This weekend, I am attending a retreat called ” Manifesting your Desires.” While preparing for it tonight, I reflected on a variety of questions. Am I living a life that reflects what I value?

“My search for something different brought me here tonight”
I will always love the first two books that I wrote. They definitely hold a special place in my heart, but my newest book was a gift.
