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 so!
In the Bible Jesus shared several stories about seeds. He tells about the sower who scattered seeds in four different types of soil (Matthew 13:1-23). He tells about the Kingdom of Heaven being like a mustard seed (Matthew 13:31-32). He talks about faith the size of a mustard seed moving mountains (Matthew 17:20-24)!
ONE WORD, ONE DEED
This month I’ve gotten to know my neighbor, a young boy who rides a scooter and delights in racing me on my trike. We have a minute together on the street when we laugh and race from his house to my house.It’s a small moment of laughter, a small seed of love, joy, peace and hope shared in the middle of a sunny afternoon.
One young boy, one small moment, one delightful opportunity to “walk the W.O.L.K.”
INSIST ON LOVE. INSIST ON KINDNESS. INSIST ON LOVING KINDNESS.
We’re in this together, friends! Together we can be transforming examples of God’s saving grace. Together our words of loving kindness can inspire, motivate, and bring about meaningful change.

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.
