3 Proven Steps To Overcoming Any Obstacle

One of the greatest honors for me was the opportunity to contribute a chapter in an anthology of stories, focusing on the strength of the human spirit, called “Living Proof, Celebrating the Gifts that Come Wrapped in Sandpaper.” My chapter, called “The Heart Whispers Truth,” highlights the lessons learned in my first marriage.

The Power Of Apology

Have you ever had an argument with your spouse, and you literally do not know how you are going to recover from it? I remember having one of those with my now darling husband when we were dating. I went to bed, with him in the other room, thinking “I have no idea how to […]

Choosing Compassion Over Convenience

My friend came to me today to let me know that she could not take on a leadership position that she had volunteered for, and for which I was depending on her. I cannot deny that I was focused for a minute on how it would inconvenience me…..finding someone else to take over…making sure that […]
