Opening up a new year like a gift from one now passed.
Searching for solutions for mistakes that have been cast.
Trying hard to change the errors we have skewed.

He came to live among us – to feel the hurt we know.
He left His throne in heaven to dwell on earth below.
He died, but then He rose again to prove He conquered death.
He never leaves our aching hearts. He’s in our every breath.

My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
