Over the many years that I have been running an internet prayer line — The Pet Prayer Line, internet prayer line for animals (and people, too) — I have become aware of the particular issues and questions that commonly crop up for those of us who are striving to live to our fullest potential and honor the standards of whatever faith we choose to embrace, while effectively coping with the realities of everyday life. In my own struggles and efforts to understand these problems in my own life, I have pursued study, research and prayer to a considerable extent, and want to share whatever insights and knowledge I have gleaned from these efforts with others who might benefit from them.
As a result, I have been published in various Christian/Catholic publications, and my writing has been featured in several books, including, “Miraculous Pet Recoveries” by Les Sussman, “My Hero, My Son” by Joseph Baddick, and “101 Inspirational Stories of the Eucharist,” by Sr. Patricia Proctor (all available on Amazon). I am currently working on a book of my own. I have taken courses in Christian Counseling and am a member of the American Christian Writers Association.
I strive to write from a perspective that does not exclude people of other faiths, or those who believe in a Higher Power but are not affiliated with any particular religion. I believe that by keeping an open mind and heart, we all can learn from each other, regardless of our own religious affiliation (or lack thereof).
This site is for those of us who are not monks, nuns, hermits or saints, but just ordinary people aspiring to live more spiritually in the everyday world. I hope you will find some inspiration in it.
