Like many, I hear stories of those on the front lines of this new pandemic called the Coronavirus. Some work in hospitals, labs, and response teams called to deal with the virus in ways we aren’t even aware of – (think morticians or cleanup crews). Others keep our supply lines open for food and transportation.

Are you feeling lonely? It’s not a fun emotion as it usually morphs into feeling sad, isolated, or depressed. You’ve probably known periods of loneliness more often than you’d like. Most women over 50 have, so you’re not alone. As you age, people you care about disappear from your life either because of different interests,
How often have you woken up in the morning with your thoughts carrying snippets of concern, crisis, or unpleasant responsibility? If you fall asleep dwelling on such things, restlessness or bothersome dreams haunt your night. When your daily life is squished in-between such musings, it’s hard to envision or experience success in your relationships, job,
I’ve lived for a long time. So have you. Christmas hasn’t always been jolly, has it? But it started that way. I mean, who plans to get pregnant without a father and explains it with an impossible story? Who suddenly finds out that his betrothed is pregnant by someone else AND his reputation is on

Autumn, my favorite time of year, but this year it signals more than ever the changing seasons in my own life. It seems but a few months ago that I celebrated the holidays. Now they’re almost here again… …already? What? Where did the time go? What did I do with that time? I wonder how

Summer means Camp Grandma at our house. Our chosen theme for this year’s camp was Camp Grandma Zombie Apocalypse. It proved to be more prophetic than I could have imagined. Planning for Camp Grandma and accepting extra help this year paid off. I’ve always appreciated my teenage grandchildren being “counselors” at camp. But this year
Years ago, I stumbled upon the key ingredient to influencing others. Amazingly, this key easily translated from my job of speaking and writing to relating advice to those I love. It’s even more valuable to me as I’ve grown older and want to influence my grown kids and grandchildren in God’s ways. Early in our
Last Sunday our pastor, Andy Rock, got my attention by his comment of how much we expect retirement to be a life free of responsibility—just one long vacation—nothing to do but rest and relax.
