The ABCs of Embracing Our Spirit Within

Available at:




This book, HONOR ONE ANOTHER: The ABCs of Embracing Our Spirit Within, is written for every person who has searched to find their place in the world, their purpose in this life.

Are you in a place in your life, …unsure what step to take next? Do you wonder if you have a spirit or what it means to have one or not?

Have you ever wondered why you were born? What makes you who you are? And how will you know when you have become the You that you are meant to be?

Perhaps, HONOR ONE ANOTHER: The ABCs of Embracing Our Spirit Within, will inspire you to find your place in this life, this world, this universe. Perhaps it will give you some sort of direction to finding your way from there to where you want to be. Hopefully, you will feel more in-tune with your spirit, …that part of you that is your core, your soul, your heart.

I encourage you to find out if the pages of my book are helpful to you or not. I also encourage you to get yourself a copy. Check out the reviews here and see for yourself if this book is for you.

And, if so, consider getting an extra copy as a gift for someone in your life who may need some inspiration.

Thank you for reading. Be blessed and stay safe.

The ABCs to Facing Our Fears

Due to a major move from city to country, Book #2 is not as far along as I would like.

Hang in there with me. My goal was to have it published before the end of this year. But – it’s looking more and more like the end of next year. Yes, I’m sorry, I have a need to be realistic. After months of hoping for something different, I have owned up to the idea that next year is more like it.

Stay tuned here for monthly updates (today’s date: 10/23/2021).

Thank you and may all be well with you and yours.

On the first weekend of May, I made some amazing progress on my second book. I discovered that in order to make get farther along that I would need to break my book out into three sections. I did it. And now, I’m on my way to getting it written.

July 25, 2021

A lot has happened since May 15. I have been residing at our new homeplace since June 28.

Our SA house has a contract on it with a closing date of August 31. And our son is building, or framing in, our little casita. He should wrap up his part of it in the next two days. Then, it will be awhile before the next person will be able to continue on it.

So far, I have not been able to work on my second book since all that success back in May. Life has me organizing and cleaning the dilapidated house we are currently staying in. And I am still running back to SA to bring the last of our things south.

September 13, 2021

I am still not writing on my second book. Two things are keeping from proceeding ahead. Exhaustion and time.

To be creative, I need energy and…time. But…I am not worried. Soon, we will be fully moved from the city to the country, and I will have the luxury of rest and of time. I am eagerly looking forward to that moment…soon.

Hang in there with me. How can you help?

Send some positive vibes my way. Just a few more weeks, and we will be fully in one place.

Thank you and God bless! πŸ™‚

I am back to writing on Book #2. It is slow-going, as there is so much to do around here. BUT I am writing!

After a hiccup with the appraisal on our SA house, we closed on September 27 (our son’s birthday). Two weeks later, and hubs is fully retired and on site full-time. Yay!

Me? I am busy with everything: paperwork, chores, reading, working out, …and writing πŸ™‚ My goal, in addition to writing on Book Two, is to up my marketing on Book One. So I am back at being my busy-self!

I will keep you posted – as always. If you would like to be added to my newsletter list, please email me at

Until the next time, stay safe and blessed πŸ™‚

On November 4 and 5, I decided to turn an author event into a mini writing retreat. It was a lot of fun! Both the event and the writing. I am now in section three of my book and couldn’t be more pleased with my progress.

My goal for the Thanksgiving break is to spend part of Friday and Saturday writing, so let’s see if I can make that happen.

In the meantime, have a wonderful and safe Happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones!

  1. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

      Hi, Bobby. I’m sorry for the delay in reply. Your comment went to my Spam folder and I just happened to look at it while checking on something else. I use WordPress myself and, thankfully, have not had any problems with hackers to date that I know of. I haven’t had any experience with other blog platforms. We use WordPress at my work, as well, for their website. I’ve thought about researching other platforms only because I find WordPress somewhat difficult to get around on, but only because our work site operates differently, so it can be confusing to me. I finally decided to stick with my current blog here on WordPress, as I’ve had it for years. I just recently, over the summer, revamped it from a personal blog about my hobbies to focus primarily on my book and writing. Are you using plug-ins not supported by WordPress? I’m just wondering what would be causing you to have hackers. I’m currently learning about SEO to use WordPress more efficiently, but it will be awhile before I feel more confident about any new skills.

      Hi. I’m sorry. I don’t think I have audio setup on my website. I’ll look into though if you think it is on my end. Please feel free to let me know. Thank you and may you have a Happy New Year πŸ™‚
