I am so glad you are here. May this feel like a place to pour your second cup of coffee or sit and just listen to the waves and any gentle words of inspiration to encourage your heart.
This site is dedicated to sharing a few moments of grace to encourage others to life to their fullest potential and be the change desired. It is also designated to bring hope to mothers and especially special needs mothers on the unknown journey of countless therapy appointments for their children and just finding a “respite” along the way.
One might find topics such as Scripture in context, wellness, faith, or thoughts to ponder to rekindle hope or begin to dream anew. One may also find parenting ideas and encouragement for parents of special needs.
What I share comes from my life. I am a mother of three, our youngest with special needs, non-chromosomal encephalopathy and autism and oromotor dyspraxia with sensory processing deficits and pathological reflexes. I am married to a wonderful man whom I met in seminary and we translated the book of Ruth from Hebrew class while courting for a portion of our coursework. He is now finishing up his doctorate. I am an ordained minister and hold a masters in Biblical Literature along with four other degrees and was accepted for a doctorate of science in holistic nutrition. In the past, I had a non-profit to encourage women and teen ladies, had a season of traveling and speaking full-time, hold certification in etiquette, and ran my own School of Etiquette on Martha’s Vineyard Island. I also bring over twenty years ministry experience and pastoring to writing which may also be sprinkled throughout posts. My greatest honor besides holding my children for the first time was praying with Mother Teresa in Calcutta in 1994.
Currently, I am mentoring a group of young professional ladies in the marketplace and keeping balance for family and intervention for our son while writing a book about the ASD Valley of Grief and Beyond and beginning to travel and speak again.
Most of all, I pray that this site may be a blessing.
