Hello Dear! It’s been a while….
Do you remember the popular 2015 song “Hello” by Adele? I once heard her say on a TV show that this song, though it sounds like a ballad about a lost love, was in fact a sentiment for how she felt about her return to performing after a long hiatus. She wondered if her fans would still be there happy to greet her. The song has also been described as “a spiritual song about …reconciling the present with the past.” This would best describe me right now as I return to my blog.

In 2017, I went back to corporate America to finish paying for my younger daughter’s college tuition and I pretty much bit off more than I could chew; that job left me with practically zero margin for continuing my ministry. I knew I would be traveling a lot and had envisioned myself using my nights writing away in a hotel room as if it were my own personal writing retreat. Not only did that never happen, I could not help but work every weekend due to the span of my responsibilities. So, this past June, I gave that job back and have been resting and recuperating ever since.
Now that I am feeling more like myself and able to have a clear thought about ministry, I am happy to be back to introduce my new tagline and a new eBook that I believe you will find helpful.
My new tagline reflects how I best believe that I can help you:
Giver of Good Stuff for Helping
You Make Sense of Yourself, Life & God’s Plans
You will see this soon change on my website – so excited! My desire is to give you needed and helpful content that will gift you with spiritual clarity.
And with that, I want to introduce my new eBook to you:
2020 has truly been an extraordinary year unlike any other. For some of us, it has been a good year and for others it has been aggravating to heartbreaking. And it is because of these extremes that I felt 2020 provided a good backdrop to evaluate our responses. In no other time as now, may we have such an opportunity to gauge our behavior and up our game.
2020 was not only a New Year, but the genesis of a new decade. Perhaps you had some big dreams that you were banking on in 2020? Maybe you had a new leaf to turn over that was sabotaged by the events or restrictions of 2020? Well, guess what – all plans and dreams can be redeemed! If you are wondering how or are intrigued by this opportunity, then I hope you enjoy my new eBook. To grab your copy, click here

So glad to have this chance to get reacquainted. Looking forward to sending you content that will help you make sense of yourself, life and God’s plans. Stay tuned…
