Information & Inspiration

For all those who are striving for happiness and
success in their personal and professional lives.

After 21 years on my first domain, I launched this all-new, ad-free website so I could continue to encourage and help others through my writing and professional services for years to come. Reflected here are my professional and personal interests, philosophy, and Christian beliefs.

Timely Quotes

“With each passing year, our lives are affected by fate or happenstance, and our ambitions and goals change accordingly. What you want now is not necessarily what you’re going to want or need in years to come. So knowledge is your best hedge against an uncertain future. Always read with the thought that what you learn today could change your life tomorrow.” – Barbara 

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement; nothing can be done without hope.” – Helen Keller
