The Way I See it

The way I see it is that we should all be looking for ways to help others.  Those that have known me know that I want to make a difference in someone’s life.  Another thing that I always wanted was to see my name printed on a book.  It is a cool feeling to see my name as the author.

I see being an author as just a way to get words and feelings out.  Those that know me know that I’m not really one for the limelight.  So for me being an author isn’t about fame or fortune.  I just want to get things out and hope that the words could make a difference to someone.

The other day I decided that for the month of October, November and December a portion of all profits from my books will go to a charity.  I chose Alex’s Lemonade.  It is a great charity trying to give children with cancer a fighting chance.

Today at work my mind started wondering.  In the position I work in I am lucky that I get to listen to music.  At one moment DC Talks version of Lean on Me came on.  Love it!  I started thinking about its words. (more…)

Fall Time…..

I love fall.  The weather is just right.  Most people like going outside during the summer but I would rather be outside when it isn’t too hot or too cold.  Fall time just puts me in a good mood.  🙂

For those that know me or have known me for a while know that  I have always wanted to find ways to help others.  A big passion is children.  I taught first grade Sunday school for 10 years, helped with VBS for several years. 

It may sound like a cliché but if we know that children are the future, that they are supposed to lead the way then shouldn’t we be doing everything to give them a fighting chance to make it to the future?  We should be doing everything we can to help build them up so they know they can make a difference in the world.

I have decided that from now till the end of the year a percentage of all sales from both books will go to a charity.  One charity that I have really liked for a while is Alex’s Lemonade.  It was started by a girl named Alex and unfortunatrely she lost her battle with cancer but her parents started the charity in her honor and have kept it going for several years.  It helps to raise awarneness, cancer research and families affected by cancer.
