“I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.”




Everyone wants it.  Everyone has it.

As a writer, I am a little obsessed with documenting life. I believe that everyone's story has value, both while it is being lived out, as well as when the body is no more.

Everyone wants to leave a legacy. Everyone wants to be known, to be heard and to be remembered.

Writing words of Life, Faith and Memory is my offering to the world. Here, I offer the opportunity to be heard, to be known and to be remembered. Whether through my books, my services in Story Sessions or in my work as an End of Life Doula, my hope and prayer is that each person that visits this site will be equipped to tell their own story.

Please, persuse this site and find encouragement to write. To live. To tell your story and to hear the stories of others. Schedule a Story Session with me to record and tell your life's story. Contact me to get your story written. And if you or someone you know is nearing the end of life, let me support you as an End of Life Doula. 

My blog is for your reading pleasure. My books are for your encouragement. And if nothing else, find here the strength to live and to tell about how you did it.
