If you have any insights into this topic, would you please drop me an email or a note on FaceBook or leave a comment and let me know? Do you think there may be some women who would be blessed by the Peacemaker Women’s Study (Living the Gospel in Relationships) in Spanish? I ask because I will be serving at a large conference …

Just had the strangest dream—that I was being SUED (and you’ll never guess why!) …

This morning I woke up from the strangest (and kinda funny) dream … I dreamt that someone sent me a HUGE bouquet of flowers AND served me with paperwork to SUE me through Christian conciliation.

My (Potential) Eulogy for My Mother

Having just tried to practice my mother’s eulogy out loud in the quietness of my hotel room; and having dissolved into tears. Again. I’m giving myself pretty much a 100% chance of not being able to get through it tomorrow morning at her memorial service. So, of course, I just asked my sister to promise to NOT make fun of the …

My Mother Died Peacefully in My Sister’s & Stepfather’s Arms

Thank you so much for praying and for your very kind notes. My mother died peacefully tonight in my sister’s and stepfather’s arms. I arrived soon after and had the privilege of coordinating things with the mortuary service/nurses, calling my mother’s best friend in the world (my Godmother, Anne Parat—creator of my girls’ inimitable Kikis) to share the news “in person” …
