Spiritual growth and healing ministry have been part of my life for over 40 years, a journey that has enriched, challenged, blessed, and transformed me—and the journey continues.

For a bit of inspiration, check out my author page on Facebook.

My work includes healing, healing ministry, and inspiring people to pass on their wisdom and knowledge to others—to tell stories so that their unique legacy (family, spiritual, cultural) will not be lost. I do this through writing books, but also through speaking engagements. Interested in having me lead a retreat or speak to a group you belong to? Please contact me.

Schnapsy, my indomitable VW, went with me everywhere. Eight years after my return, I set forth on an even grander adventure—an inward one.

Jesus said he came to bring us “fullness of life” (John 10:10). I have created this website in order to share life-giving resources that focus on healing, inspiration and growth. Some come from me as a writer, speaker, and retreat leader. Others are links you may find helpful.

I pray that this website will:

  • Lead you to experience God meeting you in your need—physical, emotional, spiritual, relational.
  • Inspire you through the articles, presentations, and books I have authored.
  • Enable you to learn more about prayer and healing.
  • Help you grow and heal.
  • Show you helpful prayer sites and other life-giving resources.


Lord, send forth your Spirit and renew the face of the earth. (Psalm 104:30)
