Last week I installed a new, pretty butterfly theme here at

This week I’m tweaking (not twerking, haha!) things to pretty it up and for easier navigation for you: adding new pages, fixing broken links, inserting pics on posts,¬†etc.¬†

You’ll find my revised page listing the articles I’ve written as well as other COOL STUFF just for you called Free Stuff: free articles, audios, podcasts, and videos!¬†

Just click here to access these free gifts!

What do you think of my new butterfly theme? Leave your comments below. I just love it! 

Remember that butterflies are never stressed out, worried, depressed, or angry. Butterflies are free and happy. 

That is what God wants for you and me!

God has set me free out of the darkness into His Glorious Light. Read my memoir, Promises In The Dark: One Woman’s Search for Authentic Love, here at Amazon.¬†

Walk free

Have you ever gone somewhere new and found out that the directions you had didn’t work or the highway you were taking was closed due to construction? Or that your smart phone’s GPS didn’t work right?

This happened to my husband Ray and me this year in January when we were going to a marriage retreat in Kansas City, Kansas. I had signed us up for the retreat as a surprise for some much needed R & R for Ray and me at the nice hotel Chateau Avalon, where the retreat was held. They deliver breakfast to your hotel door and each room has a big jacuzzi tub.


I had the correct address, had printed off the directions to the hotel from Mapquest online, and was using my iPhone’s GPS to get us there. Ray was tired from having worked several shifts, so I drove. For some reason the GPS didn’t work and the printed directions didn’t help.

I had to depend on God and Ray to get us safely there. As a paramedic, Ray often drives the ambulance to Kansas City hospitals, so he knew the area better than I did. The Holy Spirit led us the right way, but we’d never been this way before.¬†

Maybe something like this has happened to you, too. Maybe this year you’re going a way you haven’t gone before. It can be scary and uncertain.

Ray and I are there right now with our housing situation. Our lease at the rental house where we live is up on April 30, 2016. We’re not sure what’s going to happen yet or where we will live. Our faith is being tested. We’re having to trust God.
