Financial Freedom: From Fear to Faith

Last week, I hosted a Live Coaching event through Facebook on the topic of personal finance. My expertise on this topic has nothing to do with my formal education, but comes from an on-the-job training program that I have been attending for the past 59 years… a program from the curriculum from the School of Life.

America: A Land of Diversity

Last week, we just returned from a nine day motorcycle trip from Minnesota to Colorado. Leaving Minnesota, we entered the farmlands of Iowa that spread out before us for miles and miles. We then moved across Nebraska from cities into the vast prairie lands where towns were few and far between. As we entered Colorado,… Read More

From Death & Dying to Living a Life With Grace

As I mentioned in my previous blog post about a month ago, I shared that our pup Gracee, was diagnosed with metastatic cancer throughout her lymph nodes. The prognosis was poor from the beginning, when the veterinarian at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Clinic called me to tell me the biopsy results… approximately four weeks… Read More

Death & Dying with Grace(e)

The week before Christmas, our younger dog, Gracee (the white and brown one above), had an upset stomach a couple of times. For those of you who are dog owners, it is not unusual for a dog to get an upset stomach once in awhile, so we did not think too much of it. Then… Read More

The Law of Attraction

Early this year, my yoga instructor put out a message that she was going to host a yoga retreat in Greece. I had never thought about travelling to Greece but for some reason, this trip spoke to me through my heart. I knew that I really wanted to go on this trip. I stayed positive… Read More

Healing With a MOMM’s Touch

I happened to be standing in line at Lowe’s last week and my eyes were drawn to the magazine area where Time Magazine had a Special Edition called Mindfulness: The New Science of Health and Happiness. This caught my eye because I am a true believer in what I call Healing with a MOMM (Mind… Read More

The Spirit of ’76

Last evening, I had the honor of being a presenter at my 40th high school class reunion. The attendance was phenomenal for our small graduating class from 1976. The energy filled the event room as soon as people starting coming through the door as they recognized old friends and classmates. I joked during my presentation… Read More

Healing Ourselves Through Others

August has been a month of some incredible opportunities for me to witness the power of healing sad hearts and physical issues, by being in the company of other people who were willing to hold the space of love and comfort for others. Earlier this month, I went to Montana with a girlfriend to meet up with… Read More
