“Your problem is how you are going to spend this one and precious life you have been issued. Whether you're going to spend it trying to look good and creating the illusion that you have power over circumstances, or whether you are going to taste it, enjoy it and find out the truth about who you are.”

– Anne Lamott


Half of the reason we are called to care for others is for their benefit. 

The other half is for our benefit. 

Half of the reason we are called to share what we have with others is for their benefit. 

The other half is for our benefit.

There is a spirit that connects everything in the universe we know as well as what we don’t know.

We are all a part of something much, much bigger and better.

It is my calling to make my path in this life.  It is also my calling to help others find their own paths, not make them conform to mine.

We are all made in the image of a Creator therefore we too are creators.  We are all called to create.

I am a writer.

I am a teacher.

I am a mentor.

I believe in grace.

I believe in forgiveness.

I believe that my potential has not been reached and that if I’m lucky it never will. 

I believe this about you too.
