Plentiful Resources

I don't have a lot of time at the moment. I have a full time job I am very thankful to have, a young child which I am even more thankful to have. I have a dog, a home and people to take care of and love. I don't have stacks of money and riches … Continue reading Plentiful Resources

Sharing 

If there is anything I yearn for it is that my story gets shared. I've been pondering putting free copies in little free libraries that are scattered all over my town. I want people to read this book.  I want them to read it because I know it is and will make a difference. I … Continue reading Sharing 

Inspiring Conversation

The most amazing thing has happened in the past few weeks.

The Real Thing

Pretty rad to have copies of THE book in my hot little hands. I'm about to swarm the local market and get the word out there as best I can. I know my baby will be enjoyed by whomever reads her because it is true, it is honest, it is adventurous and it even has … Continue reading The Real Thing

Mostly because I am a "giver" in every type of relationship and often pair myself with extreme "takers" and it ends up burning me out. In the past few years I have really been pressing myself to … Continue reading Giving

You

You. I wrote this book for you. With all of your accomplishments and all of your flaws, I sat and I wrote. With your chin hairs and nose hairs and toe hairs, I wrote to you. At 3 in the morning on a Sunday or on a bench inside a mall, I sat and I … Continue reading You

Encouragement

I was driving home today from the usual kid weekend activities when I pulled up to a red light at a very well used intersection for those that struggle to make money in "traditional" ways. At this specific street corner there is always at least one, if not more people soliciting for funds or food. … Continue reading Encouragement

Simple things.

My son and I learned that one of my friends from school had received a burgeoning amount of free bread from a local shop for her school's breakfast program. We went, scooped up a whole bunch of it and donated it to low income seniors. It was food that was otherwise destined for the landfill … Continue reading Simple things.
