Preview to Homeless Hearts -Read the Introduction

Homeless Hearts – Coming Soon For many years I worked on this book, Homeless Hearts. I’m still working–editing and rewriting. This isn’t a book about physical homelessness, but about the heart condition that keeps people on the street long-term and, ironically, the same conditions that keep the rest of us living with a homeless heart […]

Talk about life changes--fast ones at that.

Life Changes – Reject, Accept, Embrace Changes Affecting Your Life

Life changes. Pure and simple. Changes happen in every life. They may come often or rarely, and every one of us handles changes differently. My life changes story June 2015, I left a corporate job to pursue writing full time. I planned that change, saved for it and waited patiently for my last day to […]

Good habits help with distress.

Habits – Hard to Form; Easy to Break

Habits, good and bad, take a minimum of 21 days to form. Given 30 days, a habit becomes more likely to stick. I used to be consistent with my posts. Somehow, I got out of the habit. I’m not sure why that happened. Taking on too many projects. Getting lazy. Making other things a priority. […]

I can’t help but believe the Lord is up to more. […]

Before long, several months pass and those things you meant to do never get finished. I’m guilty.But maybe—just maybe—this thing of procrastination goes much deeper than putting things […]

Homelessness isn't always physical.

Homeless Hearts-Journey into a Homeless Heart

“We will never end homelessness until we deal with issues of the heart.” Excerpts from Chapter 1 Lori’s words rang through my mind and stuck there as an unforgettable memory I’d rather forget. I looked into the faces and eyes of people at the shelter. Some smiled and seemed rather joyful while others oozed pain […]

Running the race

The Irony of Self-Discipline

Discipline. The very word sends heartbeats to a higher rate, instantly raising blood pressure. No one really likes discipline; we seldom ask for it. So the thought of invoking discipline upon myself rarely sends me into spurts of rapture. Yet, maturity demands my ability to control my own behaviors, attitudes, even thoughts. Why then, do […]
