    I’m SO ready… for Lent!

    In the blink of eye I looked up and saw it was the first week of February (already?!?).  Picking at my field greens and sipping my soup, I mentioned to my friend, a fellow authorpreneur, that January blew by like a freight train.  She lit up in agreement, and mentioned how that reinforced her decision […]

    #14 Set Goals Worth Fighting For!

    If you’re anything like me you’ve been thinking a lot these past couple weeks, gearing up for the new year.  As I get older, I start the self-reflection and personal inventory process earlier each year.  When I was a college grad, I made my “new goals” list between Christmas and New Year’s.  This year it started […]

  • #13 Make Room at Your Inn for the Holy Family, with the Nativity Stones Collection

    Ever wonder what it would have been like to be present at the Nativity?   For me, thoughts of darkness and the cold, hard ground, the hay, the sounds and smells of the animals with a peasant family huddled in the midst of it all, come to mind.  People travel from all over the world […]

    #07 Giving…and the new definition of Success!

    Every New Year’s Day I like to write down Goals for myself that I will carry with me, and refer to, throughout the year.  This year was different in the fact that, especially for my writing/publishing activities, I really focused on what I want to Give, instead of what I want to Get.

    #03 If it’s meant to be….
