Fave stories are the stories of our members and are told to inspire, uplift and give voice to everything we offer the world. Whether you need advice, guidance or empowerment you can find it in a Fave story.
Before my father died, he reminded me that Mom had asked me to write a book. At the time the boys were in college, and the notion of writing was unfathomable. Writers write books. By the time my boys were adults, I’d run out of excuses. I was also at that age when I could pause and reflect.
Fruit of My Spirit: Reframing Life in God’s Grace was my first publishing endeavor. My second was Signs in Life: Finding Direction in Our Travels with God. Both are collections of stories that tell of God’s love and faithfulness. Both tell of His remarkable grace and mercy.
When not writing, I serve as the Client Service Coordinator for The Planner’s Edge, an investment advisory firm in Washington state. I’m active in my church, serving on the Leadership Team and gathering with a wonderful group of ladies to study and giggle over lattes and chocolate. On my desk is a rock with the words “Choose Joy!” etched in it. It’s my inspiration for each day. As an author, it is my hope that my own words might share that joy we find together as children of God.
With Him, it can be so.

Last week I got a bouquet of roses from my husband, Kurt who was heading back to work after a short medical leave. The flowers didn't fare well, drooping after only a day. I refused to give up on them. And guess what? Two days later I walked into my office to see four...
I'm often asked for practical ways in which to "walk the W.O.L.K.," ways in which to share words and deeds of loving kindness. HOW DO WE PLANT SEEDS OF LOVE, JOY, PEACE and HOPE? We are surrounded by a mistaken belief that the really important stuff goes "viral." Not...
I love my two-year old grandsons. Not long ago I was getting preparing to read Enzo a bedtime story. He shrugged off suggestion after suggestion. No Cat in the Hat. No Digger Dozer Dumper. Finally I realized, he was asking for Alexa. ALEXA, REALLY? "Grandma's here to...
Last week while riding my trike (yep, a trike), I looked down to see a heart in the pavement. Three water caps were surrounded by sealant in the shape of a heart. I'd passed them countless times, but not until I altered my course and came from the opposite direction...
Those Divine Connections Growing up, my son Kevin spent a lot of time with his best friend Kent. Kent was so much a part of our family that I would frequently call my son Kent. Each time he would reply, “Mom, I’m not Kent.” And I would reply, “I know...
“But I’ll never write a book…!” When I speak about writing, I’m often approached by someone, eyes downcast, voice barely above a whisper, who says, “I have stories to tell, but I could never write a book…” Others never come forward, but I’ve learned to...
