For a long time I've concentrated on improving my body. I've realized that I was neglecting two other important parts of me - mind and spirit. It takes all three to be a healthy and whole person. I started on this mind/body/spirit journey about five years ago. Having turned 70 on Christmas Eve 2016, I'm looking to a much fuller and balanced life in the next decade. I know that age is just a number and it's never too late to change and grow. "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing." Isaiah 43:18

Lord, I praise you because you have made me just exactly the way you wanted me. Help me to get free to receive and express that beauty in me. God, free me from the insecurity and even anger I feel sometimes about myself. Show me how precious and beautiful I am to you" A prayer from "Becoming a Woman of Extraordinary Faith" by Julie Clinton

We like to travel in an RV, and I look forward to the time when we are not restricted by his schedule. I've lived most of my life in western PA and moved to Ohio in 2007.

Other Information:
I love spending time with my kids and grand kids, knit and sew, research my ancestors, play hand bells, spend time with my P.E.O. sisters, and give programs on a book I published. I enjoy having people tell me stories about their Civil War ancestors. (
