My new theme. The cherry tree.

At the end of every year–and sometimes several times during the year–I get restless and want to change my website theme. It’s usually a fast and unexpected decision, too. Like tonight, for instance. I didn’t even know I was going to do this and suddenly I did!

The truth is that if you have a website and you aren’t happy with your theme, you’re not going to want to WORK there.

I loved my last theme, but I was beginning to feel jittery again, so I found a beautiful new theme (this theme is by Out The Box) and installed it. What do you THINK?  I’d love to hear your opinion.

If you are reading this blog post or visiting my website on your phone, you’ll need to switch to the Desktop version on your phone to see this theme. But you really need to be on your computer or laptop to see its beauty fully. (I’m not sure about being able to view it properly if you’re on an iPad.) 

The navigation is pretty much the same around here, and hopefully you won’t have much trouble. I’m also planning to create a new freebie this week for subscribers to my website’s personal mailing list, so stay tuned. 

But why did I choose a cherry tree as the picture on the home page?

According to Google, the significance of a cherry tree in Japan goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry tree represents the fragility and the beauty of life, reminding us that life is overwhelmingly beautiful but tragically short. 

A cherry tree takes 3 to 4 years to produce its first crop, and 7 to fully mature (seven being the perfect number of God). They are a difficult tree to grow and keep alive. A tree  may be in bloom for only a week or two.

Like our lives which go way too fast (including THIS year!). So savor the moments, especially this Christmas.

Live well. Laugh often. Love much. 

 “You do not know about tomorrow. What is your life? It is like fog. You see it and soon it is gone.  What you should say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.”–James 4;14-15, NLV

I hope you like my new theme. Please leave your comments below of what you think about it!

Dressed up with somewhere to go!

You may notice my website is different today! One of my sweet clients has been looking for a theme for her new WordPress website, and one of the ones she showed me was the Beautiful Studio Press theme. I liked (loved) it so much that I decided I wanted it for my own! (She had already chosen another one for her site!)

You can see I have a new spring-like, pretty daisy header. 🙂

The 3 most recent blogs will be at the top of the home, page, underneath International Speaker. You can also find more blog posts if you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the home page.

If you’re not already on my personal mailing list, be sure to sign up today with your name and email address for your free gifts.

You can follow me online; the social media icons are at the top of the page on the right sidebar.

I’ve added a couple of new features for you, such as my Instagram pics on the right sidebar. I’m just dipping my little toe in the water right now with Instagram and have a lot to learn, but you can follow me there.

Also, my other websites are listed at the bottom of the home page on the left side. I’m still tweaking things. 🙂

How do you like this theme? I think it is truly beautiful! I think the navigation is easier, too!
