After we've moved through the trauma of divorce, it's a good practice to celebrate every victory.

Why would God project a new way to manage time? Is it possible that he's tweaking the hours of each day?

The place to start living free is in the mind. When we visualize our freedom and become our authentic selves, the prison walls begin to fade.

Now that you're Starting Over Single, you are responsible for your own financial health. What will that look like for you?

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.
