Wife, Widow, Now What?

Widow, Widow, Now What? How I Navigated the Cancer World and How You Can, Too is a book just release

Operating as usual


Donate at the and literally save lives. I’ve been donating platelets the past couple years and love to help out and give back for all of the blood products my late husband received. ONE DONATION CAN SAVE 3 PEOPLE! Chew on that. 2 hours connected to a machine, while watching Netflix, then getting all the snacks you want, and being able to return back to your life- that’s all it takes! In and out for a total of 3 hours. You never know the impact and what it means to someone, their family and friends. Please donate! The Red Cross is always in need and short on donors. .



Lol. When you see your lovie you haven’t seen in forever and it’s like no time has passed.

Mom and Dad. My loves. 💕💕💕💕. Thank you God for all my blessings.


Every year I look forward to seeing these tulips bloom. It doesn’t matter how many good or bad things have happened to me, these annuals make my week.


This book is knocking my socks off and making me want to write my second book. Amazing way to discuss the ins and outs of living lives not of perfection, but living it out with God in our hearts and humor when applicable. On most of the dozens of podcasts I’ve been on, I discuss the calamity or errors that bestowed me when I was in the thick of my journey. lays it all out there just like I did. Rock on to being 100% authentically you!


Daily I’m strengthened and surprised by God’s GRACE and Promises. I’ve come a very long way in the past 11 years and cannot believe I did all I did. It blows my mind. Thank you Jesus.


11 years ago today my viewpoint of the world shaped and shifted. I wouldn’t say that colors dulled or disappeared, I’d more say that sometimes the cheery hues of pinks, oranges, yellow and purples like the sky- took longer to see at times. You were an amazing human being and I’m 100% confident you are well and happy in heaven. Thank you God! #11


One of the greatest beauties in my life is the ability to choose those I let in. This woman is an incredible individual, who has a snarky sense of humor, dry wit, and a heart of gold, despite a tough exterior. I’m thankful for the family that I have created in these last 24 years I’ve been in Minnesota and within that I’ve gotten to collect many amazing people including


How do you navigate your own, your significant other’s, parent etc Cancer!?!

This is an excellent series that I highly recommend. It was gritty, raw and delivered personal narratives that tell the highs and lows of history. As an ally for several decades, I’ve always been interested in learning more, and I thank God for opportunities and ways to do so. 🌈 💕🙏




God’s Grace. I’m only still breathing and here after all I’ve been through because of God’s grace. .


We each have a canvas. Sometimes it gets splattered with colors and designs. Other times we get to not only pick the colors, but the exact hues. I’m thankful for God’s grace to work with what I have been given and what I’ve chosen. What can you choose to color your canvas?… what is your ability to take those designs and colors to create into your own masterpiece?- it is up for grabs!Lately I’ve had a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that I’ve been married before,,,that I’ve been through a cancer battle, that I’ve survived a whirlwind of grief and loss. It’s almost been 11 years. Time, time, time and God’s consistent comfort and peace has allowed this. I’m so very grateful.


Life is more chaotic I believe, the older we get. Aging parents with health challenges, our own bodies not doing what we’d like and/or health scares (at least in my case with my chronic issues)…..so many external forces that cause us to shift and rearrange what we may have had planned. It’s oh so very true that God laughs when we make plans. He has the master plan. He’s amazing through it ALL. The love, the laughter, the tears, the pain, the loss, the joy……. This is the most snow we’ve had the entire winter- falling right now. The miles I travel by car to get to those I love far away, and daily and by foot here at home, out and about and on the treadmill at home or at the gym…..all bring me back to the same point- trusting God. Without that…I don’t know who I am. The blanket and wonder of this snow makes me grin. Thank you Jesus.
