But first, I want to remind you of something very important: Expect the unexpected Life is full of surprises, accidents, disasters, miracles and miseries. Moments you never saw coming that change your life forever. Good and […]

You’ll Never Believe It! Blossom Tip 4

Remember how I gave away a $20 Amazon Gift Card a couple months ago, because I found $20 in Wickenden Forest and didn’t know what to spend it on?

You Can Stop Working So Hard – Blossom Tip 3

“I’m trying so hard to Blossom but I don’t know how,” said one of our She Blossoms Facebook Group members. “I feel like I’m sinking instead of growing.

Rubart at the Oregon Christian Writer’s Conference last month, I never dreamed I’d quote a line from his book — which I’d never read — within five minutes of our conversation. “You can’t read the label when you’re standing inside the bottle,” I said. “Some old guy said that a long time ago — I […]

The First Book in the “She Blossoms” Series Will Be Called…

Blossom: Finding Hope and Healing for Your Heart After Loss is the working title of the first “She Blossoms” book in my series! Of course, “working title” means it could change in 15 minutes. But it’s been the working title for over a month, so it may stick for another day or two. Last week, I polled my She Blossoms […]

The One Thing That Makes You Blossom Into Life

I have a very serious job for you: find and value at least One Thing that makes you come alive. One Thing that makes me come alive — in all my Blossomy glory — is listening to podcasts while running and walking backwards up hills at 5:30 in the morning!
