My weekly message is going out a little earlier than usual as I’ll be driving to New York State tomorrow to run the Wineglass Tour marathon on Sunday morning. Am I crazy? Perhaps, but also happy. Why? Because I’ve been training for this race for months now, and am almost there. It’s a psychological fact that working towards something meaningful gives people a greater sense of happiness than having immediate gratification. Goal setting and achieving takes… Continue

I Didn’t Expect This!
What do you do when you step out in obedience to do something you believe the Lord has called you to and through no fault of yours, but because of circumstances beyond your control it turns out much different than what you expected? What if all your plans and efforts go “south”, or horribly wrong? Can you still say “God is good”?
The sobering reality is that the unexpected is part of life. Business deals go… Continue

In researching my latest book, “The SIMPLE Life: Shiny Objects Not Required”, the perspective of positive psychologist Dr. Martin Seligman is refreshing and badly needed. We’ve spent so much time studying and analyzing what’s wrong with us, that we’ve ignored the traits that make us pretty good. Dr. Seligman calls these positive characteristics our strengths and virtues. Go ahead - take the VIA Strengths Survey at… Continue

With three sons who no longer live with me, there comes a sudden moment when I feel compelled to get in touch with each one of them. The timing is never the same and the reason for calling may not be the same but the urge to get in touch is unmistakeably the same. Is this the feeling all mothers have? Some more than others? At any rate, the urge I have is a good one – mixed with love, longing and curiosity as to what may be going on in their lives. And so far… Continue

A few years ago, I pulled out a “Truth” card out of a deck of angel cards and it’s been sitting on my desk since then. It’s not always easy to look at as it compels me to say it like it is which isn’t easy. And the little message reads, “Tell the truth. Integrity is the key to living an authentic life,” which adds to the rawness of it all. If you’re in this space, it demands painful courage of you while at the same time gifting you with dignity and… Continue

This YA novel reminded me a bit of the Marvel ‘X-Men’ series in that it’s about a group of ‘gifted’ teens who are sent to a special school to help them learn to hone their powers. The main character, Laura, suffers from terrible migraine headaches and during one of these episodes she sees a horrific vision which then comes to pass. Apparently she can predict the future and so she is sent to the school so that she can learn to control her visions and potentially avert disasters from… Continue

I want to thank my dear client, Michelle Yanstick, for allowing me to help her young horse, Mac, during a challenging time for all of them. This is a perfect example of why I am blessed to be able to telepathically communicate with animals. It is so gratifying. I truly love what I do! Go to “Testimonials…

Triumph Through Trial – a Story of Renewal by Theresa Franklin follows the day to day life of a seemingly happy couple on the cusp of their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. On the surface, they appear to have the ideal marriage and family, but this is far from reality. Even though they are Christians they are not necessarily happy or even satisfied with life.

Nike Chillemi has done it again in PERILOUS SHADOWS, the third book in her Sanctuary Point Series. This page turning ‘who-dunnit’ is another home-run for the self proclaimed ‘crime-fictionista’, with plenty of action, suspense, surprises, and quirky characters. The book follows the ‘leads’ of investigative reporter and broadcaster Argus Nye, whom we’ve met as an interesting, though minor, character in the first two installments of the series. This time, his talent for sniffing… Continue

I’ve just come across a literary magazine for parents called “Stealing Time”. Is it only parents who get to/need to steal time? How do you steal time anyway? By taking the batteries out of the kitchen clock? By telling someone you’re busy when you’re not? By siding with the physicists and proclaiming that “time doesn’t exist”? Or is it when you smile and do exactly what you want to...? I think that’s stealing time, don’t you?
