Life is an Ongoing Process…

We either learn from our mistakes or we keep making them. We either suck on sour lemons, or we make lemonade. We either hate where we are or we seek a new place.  We all can be smart or dumb. We can love or hate.  We can live by faith and hope, or just give up.  We can make good decisions or bad ones. We can overcome our bad decisions or continue to make worse ones. We can be stuck or move on.  Every day we are faced with choices, and we have the power to learn to make good ones.  We also suffer a lot of hurts, betrayals, grief and pain at times in our lives.  How we respond to those things is important.  As I learn life’s lessons, I share them, hoping they will bless someone out there.

About me: I am a person who loves to learn.  I love helping people who are hurting, and in my experiences of doing community outreach, I have learned a lot about people and how we relate.  I dropped out of high school, but went back to school to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Sociology. Then I got a master’s degree in Sociology.  And I just earned my Master’s in Social Work.  I am a licensed social worker, counselor, writer, photographer, business owner, business consultant, writer, blogger, photographer and servant.  I am also a lover of Jesus, and I have written devotionals that people from all walks of life can relate to, whether you are a conservative or a liberal, male or female, rich or not-so-rich. As an observer of the human experience, I see things from a unique perspective.  I hope that some of the lessons I have learned from my successes, but more importantly, from my mistakes and failures, will prove to be useful to others.

I also have a passion for community outreach, and have created Gathering Magazine, which spotlights local nonprofits in the community and how we can all work together to build a better world. You can find Gathering Magazine by clicking here.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact me, I’d love to hear from you.

Remember, it’s all about love!
