Are You Filled Up?

Are you struggling with a practical need today? God can fill that need and provide everything you're searching for.

Hiding Behind the Barriers

When we go through pain, it's a common response to disconnect. But how can we learn to trust again if we hide behind emotional barriers?

How many times do we invite the verdict of shame? Can we find our authentic selves, dare greatly and let hope eliminate shame?

How do you find time to rest and avoid burnout? Here's a post that reminds us to find time for God.
This year, I've shared a bit about my burnout experience and my desire to find rest. Well…..finding rest in the middle of a busy life can be challenging. I can easily turn resentful of all there is to do. But what if, instead of complaining about some of those things, I grabbed them as ...

Author of "The Unraveling of Reverend G"
Introduction
I grew up on a farm in Oklahoma and yes, it's true that you can't take the country out of the girl. Currently, I live in the heartland of Kansas where I cheer for the Jayhawks.

As a writer, I'm interested in helping caregivers, particularly those who deal with Alzheimers and dementia. These diseases have affected our family in tragic ways and I write about them using the genre of fiction.

"The Unraveling of Reverend G" is the story of a woman minister who is diagnosed with Alzheimers. Rev G checks into Cove Creek Assisted Living where she meets Bert, Roxie and Gabriel - the cat with a special gift. The book is available on Amazon and from my publisher, Cross River Media.

Graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University, served as a missionary and I have one incredible son.
