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

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” – Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities 

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
– Theodore Roosevelt (Watch for Elkhorn, a PBS mini-series coming in April)
