Hello and thank you for visiting my website. I hope you will stick around, read some blog posts or check out the information about books and articles I have published. Don’t be shy about leaving comments. Would love to get to hear your stories too because I believe we all have stories to tell. And the more we tell our stories the more we see that indeed we do belong to each other.

Please note my blog was formerly called “Livin’ What You’re Given” and the blog has now been incorporated into this web site. It is my desire that people visiting this website will join me in promoting the attitude that we are beautiful and have purpose until we take our last breath, no matter what the world says about the aging process.
