I Can See Clearly Now

Sometimes my life lessons are so obvious I know they will end up in one of my weekly blogs while they are happening. Just the other day I experienced such a lesson. I felt an eyelash or some small object in my left eye while doing stomach crunches. Without thinking, I...

Message from Mom

Someone asked if I was going to write about my mother this week since Sunday is Mother’s Day. I wasn’t planning on it, but the question reminded me of an interesting conversation my mother and I had not long before she made her transition. My mother spent the last six...

Root Root Root for Your Own Team

I experienced my first baseball game at Minute Maid Park in Houston last week. Unlike the rest of my family, sports are not a big interest of mine, but I still had a lot of fun. The last time I went to a baseball game was in 1991 at Yankee Stadium with my family. I...

I have a new respect for Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, the Missouri couple who founded the Unity Movement in the late 1800s. I learned a lot about them and the beginnings of Unity this past weekend at the headquarters in Unity Village near Kansas City. I went there to...

A Little Mexican Miracle

This week I’d like to share just a quick little Mexican miracle with you. For anyone who has been reading my weekly emails for a while, it’s no secret that one of my favorite foods is pizza, but I also love Mexican food. I particularly enjoy Chipotle Mexican Grill...

Let it Snow! Let it Go! Let it Snow!

I’m at Serenity Farm in Virginia this week facilitating group and private Family Constellations sessions. Last week when I saw the snowflake icon on the weather forecast for Monday in Richmond, VA I was not jumping for joy. I grew up in Upstate New York and graduated...

The “Figure It Out” Challenge

Life is always giving us opportunities to “choose once again” as A Course in Miracles encourages us to do. Last weekend I noticed myself being concerned about how I was going to deliver a stack of Big Sky Retreat flyers to the Center for Spiritual Living in Fort...

Skyway to Heaven

I had a wonderful time at the Empower Music Posi Awards last Sunday evening in Tampa, FL. What a blessing to meet musicians from all over the country who write and sing songs with a positive message. The awards show was actually more like a concert. Each nominee...

Love is My Captain

A few weeks ago I had the honor and privilege of sailing the Caribbean Sea on a huge cruise ship with over 200 spiritual seekers. Dr. Kenn Gordon, the Spiritual Leader of the Centers for Spiritual Living, shared a message about trust using our ship as a metaphor. He...
