Welcome to!

I am honored you have chosen to view my website. has been created to assist others facing life challenges. No matter what your unexpected life challenge; death of a loved one, divorce, loss of job, chronic illness, guiding children with special needs, I want you to know that you are not alone. At you will find an avenue that will empower you to heal and create the life you want to live.

You may be wondering: how does one begin to heal when the loss is so great?

Honestly, just one step at a time.

It is my belief that in order to truly heal, the whole person- the body, mind and spirit- needs to heal. My focus will be on providing tools and information that embody love, faith, and being true to oneself. In doing so, I know you will find peace and joy in your life once more.

I know this because I have lived it. When my husband Larry died, my life as I knew it ended. Never in my wildest dreams when I envisioned getting married and creating a family did I think I would end up widowed at forty-two. Left alone and responsible for three young children, one with special needs, was more daunting and crippling than I ever could have imagined. Where do I turn? What will become of my life? I had so many questions, and very few (if any) answers.

Although it has been almost four years since Larry passed away, I clearly remember the feelings of isolation, fear, and insecurity that threatened to take over who I was as a person. It felt as though my life had ended, yet I was still here, still breathing. Somehow, I had to get up each day, take care of my children, and start to create a new life.

My journey is not unique, but it is very personal, as is yours. During these last four years I have been blessed to be surrounded by a community that cares. I have been guided by others who also have suffered a great loss. I have gained many tools to assist in not only healing, but creating a life worth living.

My hope in sharing my journey through this website is to help guide you through your own. My journey is not over. I continue to face challenges in my life, as will you, but getting back to the basics and using the tools I have, I continue to not only meet each challenge but rise above it.

I hope you will join me as I explore topics that accompany life challenges, and use the tools I provide. All the information provided through this site will be free of charge. In fact, I will have some great giveaways! Hey, we all need something positive in our life!
