Why the blog?

I write as the Spirit moves me. I have prayed about what I'm supposed to do with my life a lot. A lot. Writing. Writing is what I believe God is leading me to do. Whether or not He wants me to write for anyone to read is His business. Much of my writing has been therapy for me so maybe I'm the only one who is supposed to read it. So, why the Blog? As a sounding board, a note pad, a place to keep my ideas and thoughts. A place to share and promote my books, and photography. Written prayers, a place to vent. Possibly, even a place for the unknown reader to learn about the love of Jesus.

Free book!

Now through the end of February, "Lessons Learned at Summer Camp" is free with coupon code DU95W.  


If you have teen daughters or know someone who does, this is a great book to read together. It will have the two of you discussing all the sensitive issues that are so difficult to initiate.  Based on a true story, this is a life no parent wants their children to experience.

A day at the beach, and then...

Have you ever challenged yourself?  I mean, seriously challenged yourself!  I did.  I trained, I prepared. I set high goals.  I told people about it. Then, well, then my brain said, oh no you don't.  You can NOT do this.  I wanted to quit.  I whined. I cried.  I prayed. Then, I was encouraged by family and by strangers. I may not have met my goals, but I proved to myself that I am not a quitter.  I DID IT!!!  So, what am I talking about?  Look at all the pictures.  You'll see.  
 a beautiful day.

Oh yes, the real reason why we're here.

I'm running a marathon.

 So glad I didn't give up.

 and I'm DONE!!!
That's me, a 46-year-old marathon finisher!!! 
Never give up on your dreams.
