A Bit About Me…
I’ve scribbled words on paper for as long as I can remember. Considering myself a “writer” took much longer. I am a writer by passion, a teacher and mentor by accident, a philosopher because questions arise.
Educated by life and by intent, I hold a degree in Economics with a minor in Theology from a small college in Michigan with the uncanny name that offered me the very thing I needed most at the time, “Hope”. I searched for my soul for three more years at Princeton Theological Seminary, walking away without the answers I hoped for, but with a master’s degree in theology and counseling and more unanswered questions. It took me much longer to understand that what I already knew to be true was all I needed to navigate life. Learning to trust myself and the process of learning took much, much longer.
PUTTING WORDS TO INTUITIONS
I write to put words to the feelings, truth, and intuitions that live within me, to find answers to life’s most pressing questions and to share what I discover along the way with those who are searching and /or suffering. I share my words, my discoveries, my thought processes, and my love and support through articles, books, workshops and one-on-one coaching. As I continue to search for my voice, my truth, my raison d’être, I love to share my journey and support others who are doing the same.
I blog here, on The Huffington Post and iSeniorSolutions, about issues relevant to people over forty-five, about trauma and transformation, healing and wholeness, ans psychology and spirituality. I have a second website, InspiringQuotesbyWomen where I make my contribution to supporting the voice of women.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE:
I’ve lived in North Carolina for over twenty years and it still doesn’t feel like home! My northern roots have left me unable to figure out the southern way of life, or the season-less seasons!
We raised our two sons in NC and they have flown the coop. I’m proud of the men they’ve become. There are days, however, when I wish they’d come home and remind me of who I am. A hug would be really nice too! After that, they can leave again.
I love my life. It’s not always easy but the small things that keep me planted. Life with my husband of thirty-three years is a constant source of entertainment and intrigue. Our grand dog “Rowdy” and two cats keep us on our toes and cleaning house. Gardening, walking, reading and studying keep me busy when I’m not writing or leading a workshop.
