Over the last decade as
this message has spread, I’ve received countless heartwarming stories about changed lives and
strengthened relationships through the intentional practice of encouragement.
Through my own journey, I’ve also learned that we can always find purpose in our pain if we’re
willing, and I wanted to use my own experience to encourage some of the people closest to my
heart: widows. That’s why I wrote Good Grief! Hope, Help, and a little Humor for your Journey
from Wife to Widow. This book shares practical wisdom (some of which I learned the hard way)
with a dose of healing humor. One thing I’m sure of: you can always find reasons to laugh, even
in the most challenging circumstances.
Whether through speaking, writing or coaching, my passion is to encourage others to thrive and
to make authentic affirmation part of their daily lives. It is my sincere desire that I can do that
for you and others in your life! I hope you’ll join me in the mission of encouragement and stay
connected to receive ongoing encouragement from me.
