Time to let love in...

February 11, 2017

For many, February is celebrated as the month of love and romance. You see it everywhere: along the candy aisles, the floral shop, and in advertisements for romantic dinners. The mantra is the same every year: love is in the air. It has been marketed this way for as long as most of us can remember. …

Living a Worry-Free Life...

October 7, 2016

It's a natural human tendency to worry. We have been conditioned to do so virtually our entire lives. We worry about our kids, our job, crossing the street safely, having enough money to buy groceries or pay the bills, whether we are on the right spiritual path in life...and the list goes on and on.…

The signs are everywhere...

June 4, 2016

So many times in life, we pray for a sign...which job should I take? Where should I move? What career is meant for me? Is it time for a change in my life? Please, just give me a sign! But, the question becomes...do we really pay attention to the signs we are given?

Amazingly, the signs we seek are …

An attitude of gratitude...

May 1, 2016

You may have noticed that we did not send out a newsletter in April.

As an experiment, I created a few short meditations that I will …

The Air of Transformation

September 20, 2015

There is an air of transformation afoot.  As our world and the people who reside here continue shifting in ever changing ways, I can't help but marvel at the beauty that is all around us.  It is true that some do not see this beauty or have been stagnant in life for so long while others have endured…

Uncharted Territory

July 29, 2013

Recently during an interview, I was asked what tips I might give to a prospective writer.  There were so many things I could have said, but in the end I settled on one tip...just do it!  There will always be some who are jealous and want to drag you down, or hope you won't surpass them in the writin…

Counseling Outside The Box...Grief

July 15, 2013

In my counseling practice, I dwell not on the past but on the indomitable spirit of your will to go forward, to live in the present and prepare for a beautiful future.  Unfortunately, many who come into my office are stuck in the past, dwelling on issues they can no longer effect.  My patients bring…

Dreams, Dreams, Dreams

June 13, 2013

My dreams are typically quite active and very detailed...the ones I remember, at least.  I've long studied and the possible interpretation of such amazing creations.  Our minds are constantly at work, even while we're sleeping.  Over time, and after reading a myriad of dream interpretation books, ma…

Heaven's Face

June 3, 2013

As I was trying to drift off to sleep tonight, this poem wandered through my mind, waiting, hoping for an escape.  Finally, I had to get up and write it down, lest sleep elude me...

Within the rain-wrapped slumber

The storm pushes through my dreams

Urging me, beckoning me, stalking me

With prom…

Putting Together The Pieces Of Life

May 19, 2013

I find it interesting how the pieces of life's puzzle slowly fall into place.  A breadcrumb here, a tiny clue there, all scattered along our life's path.  It is our greatest hope that birds or other animals do not sneak in and disturb those clues...or negative forces hoping to distract us from our p…

Readers Are Motivation

April 11, 2013

One of the most joy-filled moments I have as an author is hearing from my readers.  Nothing quite compares to this experience.  I often receive messages such as:

"I just downloaded your book. Can't wait to start reading it!"

"I just started your book and love your writing style."
