Welcome to my blog, where we explore a practical, spiritual approach to a more meaningful life. I believe that everyone has a spiritual journey to embark on, and my blog is here to provide guidance, hope, encouragement and inspiration along the way. Spirituality is not only about belief, but about action – and I’m committed to sharing actionable tips and insights that can help you live your best, most fulfilling life!

I am an author whose other areas of interest and study include Christian Counseling, drama, and art. As a Catholic Christian, I often draw inspiration from this perspective, but with a respectful and inclusive approach to people of all faiths and backgrounds, as well as those who have no religious affiliation but are looking for a deeper connection to a Higher Power. I strive to use an open-minded approach that draws from various spiritual and inspirational sources. Join me as we explore the practical side of spirituality, sharing insights and tools to help you cultivate a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with yourself, others, and the Divine!

Despite the current popularity of the term “the Universe” to describe where our power originates, I do not use that term. I believe in God, and I believe that God dwells within each one of us, but also that God exists as the Origin of everything and the giver of all good things. “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.” ~ Hebrews 11:3. So, if God created the Universe, the Universe in and of itself has no power to create. Nor do I believe that “we are God,” but I believe that we are all part of God. My perspective on it is that if you filled a billion cups of water from the ocean, the ocean would still be there as a whole, but you would also have a part of the ocean in each one of those cups that you filled from it. Yet, each individual cup is not the entirety of the ocean. So I use the term “God” in my posts, but call this Higher Power whatever resonates with your own belief system.

I also will sometimes use the pronoun “He” when referring to God. I believe that, being pure spirit, God of course encompasses both male and female characteristics. So my use of the male pronoun, which is traditional, is used only for better flow during the writing process. It is not meant to exclude the female aspect of God.

I believe that all of us have access to the God within us, by tapping into our inner guidance. I use this term to describe wisdom and inspiration that is clearly outside of our conscious mind’s ability to give us. Some choose to believe that this wisdom comes through their Soul or Higher Self, some believe it is from the Holy Spirit, Jesus, angels, archangels, saints, or guides, etc. I believe in all of these sources, and that we can receive guidance from any one of them. But I also believe that ALL good and true guidance originates with God and flows through to us in various ways, assisting those of us on earth who are struggling to live the best lives we can. Much of what I post here was directly given to me through this inner guidance.

As it says in Matthew 7: By their fruit you will recognize them…every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit….Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.” This is how I discern what is authentic, good inner guidance for me, and it is how I know when it originates with God.


My goal is to help provide a practical spiritual approach to a more meaningful life. I continually strive to give hope, encouragement and motivation to those who are determined to stay true to their faith, beliefs, and High Ideals, while effectively coping with the stresses and problems of everyday living. Above all, I want to reassure you that you are never alone — that God and God’s helpers are always nearby to assist you and will never abandon you!
