Living out the miracle… that’s what I’m doing since I survived a half-ton tree limb when it fell on my car during the Ice Storm of 1994. Well, actually… I didn’t survive. I died that February day. When they did manage to resuscitate me, I was left in a coma for 31 days and my family was given very little hope by doctors that I would live. Luckily for my family and me, our source of hope came from elsewhere.

So yes, I am living out the miracle but, in a very real sense that is what we are all doing. It’s just that sometimes we don’t recognize it as such or sometimes we forget. Life is a precious gift and you need not experience a catastrophic event (be it accident, illness, man-made, or natural) to start living out your own miracle to its fullest, most blessed extent this very moment.

Welcome to my website. I’m so glad you found me. I hope what you discover here helps you lead a more mindful, more spiritual life. And for my new friends who are going through a seemingly insurmountable challenge at the moment, know that I’ve been there and the only true defeat is to stop trying!

Come back and visit as often as you wish. I’ll add new resources soon and will update my Events Calendar to include my speaking engagements. If you would like to make arrangements for me to speak to your church, club, or organization please see my Contact page. I would love to meet your group, be it large or small, and share my story of survival, of spirituality, and of hope.
