 May 10, 2019

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers out there! Whether you are physically a mother or nurturing others as an aunt, sister, teacher, nurse, friend, or in any of the many ways we women nurture and sustain others, I hope you have a great day. Even if not a mother ourselves, all of us […]

Twelve Steps and Depression – Is there a Program for That?

 April 25, 2019

One of the characters in Beautiful Questions, book six of my Dancing through Life series, suffers from clinical depression. I researched depression, the many different treatments, but as I wrote the book, it occurred to me that an important part of healing may entail having a support group of others in the same situation. I […]

Saints and Sickness – What Is the Correlation?

 April 17, 2019

For the past few years, I have received daily emails with the Saint of the Day from Franciscan Media. I don’t spend a lot of time reading these. If I’m too busy or miss a couple of days, I might delete a few without reading but for the most part I do at least a […]

 April 10, 2019

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, except for when it does! Or so thinks Esther in Lyrical Dance, book seven of my Dancing through Life Series. What is it about the mother-daughter relationship? So fraught with emotion, it is the strongest of the parent-child bond because of the ways that women process emotions, […]

Dealing with Travel Anxiety

 March 21, 2019

Do you suffer from travel anxiety? I suspect it is more common than I first thought. As I sat on my flight from LA to Detroit, I noticed a number of fellow travelers ordering drinks, two at a time. That’s one way of dealing with travel anxiety. Not how I handle travel anxiety, though. I’m […]

When God Says, Slow Down!

 March 14, 2019

What do you do when God says, slow down? Do you argue? “But I’m too busy doing your work to slow down. How could you ask me to do this?” Do you bargain? “I’ll slow down as soon as I finish this project or this event.” Of course, there will always be another project or […]

Travelling with a Toddler – Melbourne

 March 8, 2019

Australia was not on my bucket list for travel. There are so many places I’ve yet to see. When my husband would bring up the subject I was like—too far! Why travel there? But when my daughter was transferred to Melbourne and needed help moving, of course I came. So now I have experienced travelling […]

The Joy in Doing One Thing at a Time

 February 20, 2019

Something strange has happened over the last few weeks. Perhaps it was the winter cold and snow, turning my blood into slow-flowing molasses in my veins. (Think of it as playing a 78rpm record at 33rpms for those of you old enough to remember what this is.) Perhaps it just because I’m growing older. Or […]

A Lesson from the Ostrich – Job 38:17

 February 13, 2019

Each Monday morning I spend an hour in quiet contemplation at the adoration chapel at St. Joseph church. I love this time. Time to just sit with God and see what God has in store for me. I usually read the psalm that I am blogging about that week. Little did I expect to learn […]
