While it is not necessary to reinvent the wheel, there are times when it is necessary to reinvent oneself.  One sudden, unexpected event forever changed my life, sending me on a journey to figure out who I am and where I fit in the world now that the life I had no longer exists.

Being plunged almost instantly (and totally unprepared) into widowhood has been like being dropped into a foreign country where I don't know anyone, don't know the customs or the language, have no idea where I am, and no clue where I am going or how to get there.  I - the person who always had a plan - suddenly had no idea what to even plan for, and I had no idea how to plan for that!

So... drawing on my training and experience as a pastor, teacher, and entrepreneur, I'm rebuilding my life one day at a time, while pursuing my long-held passion for writing.  If you've found yourself in a place of rebuilding your life one day at a time, too, (and aren't we all works in progress?) I invite you to journey with me.
