Sending Prayers to a Friend

A friend of ours has been struggling with his health for many, many months. Within the past five months, he received a liver transplant and was doing fairly well. However, he has taken a turn recently and needed to have more surgery. Things are not going well for him, and unfortunately everything that could go wrong during and after surgery …

Mother Nature…continued

I often blog about this, probably because it is utterly fascinating and I can’t stop thinking about the weather and how we have no control over it. I also think about technology–now, our friend–and I often wonder how we managed without it. Back “in the day,” we looked into the sky and saw the storm a ‘comin. Now, we follow …

The Year of You, 2014

At my event two weeks ago, I spoke about the Year of You. I asked the attendees to think about who they were, what they would like to change, and how they would “think out of the box” in order to make that change. I offered ideas for them to ponder on how to feel inspired to help others and how to go about setting their plans …

5th Annual Evening Of Inspiration

What a lovely evening it was on March 8th for the Evening of Inspiration! With the terrible winter we have had in Southern NJ and the back to back snow and ice storms, nothing could have been more exciting than to hold the event in 50 degree springlike weather. The Mays Landing Country Club once again did an outstanding job. The rooms were …

My Centerpieces

I feel like a parent bragging about my kids, but I just have to brag on this. Recently, I visited Hammonton High School Culinary Department and watched the students baking and decorating my centerpieces. We used floral centerpieces made out of cupcakes for the event. They were certainly beautiful, and they could either be eaten or taken home if people preferred. They also …

Live Online Radio Show

I was blessed enough to have an interview with Harry Hurley on his live radio show last week while drinking a hot cup of coffee. It was the week of my Evening of Inspiration, and Harry was nice enough to have me as a guest to tell all his listeners about my event as well as everything else that I do. He is …

More Snow??? Is it Spring Yet?

This has been one of the coldest and snowiest winters in as long as I can remember. It reminds me of how much I hate both the cold and snowy weather! I feel, like probably everyone else around me, as though I am hibernating, only going outside to get into the car or walk the dog. Other than that, trips outside for any …

A Good Friend’s Daughter

It always saddens me to hear about a young child struggling in life, especially when her parents cannot pinpoint the problem. Is it puberty, a chemical imbalance, hormones, or just plain, old troubles? There does not even have to be a big issue in the home, but to the person suffering, especially if it’s a young child, it can be something so trivial …
