Walking with Families through Grief – Available in Print format

 April 12, 2017

We grieve because we have loved. It is a gift, one we don’t want, yet a gift nonetheless. Think of the alternative – to go through life without allowing ourselves to love others because of the pain involved when we lose them. Not an alternative many chose. My book, Walking with Families through Grief, helps you unwrap […]

What’s the Best Way to Write a Novel?

 April 5, 2017

A while back, Peter DeHahn posted in his blog about his experience with NaNoWriMo and the advantages of writing a book in one month. I agree with what he wrote. I wrote the first three books of my Dancing Through Life series in three consecutive years for NaNoWriMo. It was great fun, focusing on this […]

 January 25, 2017

I pulled into the parking ramp at the Kellogg Center and looked for an open space. The closest one was being blocked by two men in suits in conversation. I pulled around them, parked further up the parking ramp, left my coat in the car and pulled out my computer bag. I was ready for […]

Moving from WordPress.com to WordPress.org

 January 18, 2017

A few months ago I made the move from a wordpress.com website to a wordpress.org website. After three years of attending WordPress meet-ups, the members of the meet-up said I was probably the most prepared person ever to do this switch. While it wasn’t a seamless transition, it was relatively easy. WordPress.com is great for […]

In Search of my Lost Motivation

 January 11, 2017

New Year’s has come and gone and with it went my motivation. It didn’t help that I came down with some type of intestinal bug the night of January 2, robbing me of two days of productivity. The only benefit of such a bug is that it can help you shed some of those holiday […]

A Baby Every Christmas!

 December 24, 2016

“A baby every Christmas,” my grandfather used to say. He certainly did his part. He and my grandmother had eleven children. When those children got married and had children, they easily provided my grandfather with his Christmas baby. I never knew my grandfather. He died when I was three. As long as my grandfather was […]

Does America Need New Dreams?

 December 14, 2016

Over the past weekend I listened to reports about how the American Dream of each generation making more than their parents is no longer available to many young adults. (American Dream Collapsing) I don’t know about you, but that was never my dream, either for myself or my children. Since I went into ministry, my […]

The Gift of Grief at Christmas

 December 9, 2016

“I wish I could just skip Christmas this year,” my eighty-five year old mom tells me. She lost her second husband this past September and while they had been married less than five years, the pain remains. As her daughter, I feel for her and worry about her, but it is not the same as […]
