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

“Without faith to act as a governor, the human mind is a runaway worry generator, a dynamo of negative expectations. And because your life is yours to shape as you wish with free will, if you entertain too much anxiety about too many things, if you place no trust in providence, what you fear will more often come to pass. We make so many of our own troubles, from mere mishaps to disaster, by dwelling on the possibility of them until the possible becomes inevitable.” – Dean Koontz, in Odd Apocalypse

“To be yourself, in a world that tries, night and day, to make you just like everybody else, is to fight the greatest battle there ever is to fight, and never stop fighting.” – e.e. cummings
