About this author


For years I have thought this quotation was insightful: “We worship our work, work at our play, and play at our worship” (Gordon Dahl). Working hard is a good thing but we worship work when we overdo it, use it to feel good about ourselves or make it more important than relationships, health, and the good of others. Playing at our worship is about engaging in worship in a way that resembles ent... Read more of this blog post »

The Eagle Has Flown by Jack Higgins

Again not my typical kind of book but I liked this one also. Same deal: characters were not black and white but struggled to do the closest thing to "right" in a horrible situation.

I liked it very much although this is not the kind of book I typically read. I love history and I liked seeing people make the best choices they could in nearly impossible situations.

Daring Greatly by Brené Brown

While most of this is what I learned in 12-step, I liked hearing how Brown phrased things. For some reason I enjoyed it much more on CD, listening to it in the car.

“About Solitude:

I can keep busy, work hard to keep solitude at bay. There comes a time, however, when I am alone with myself. When I feel the presence of God, I let my thoughts wander into shadowy crevices, unafraid, and I learn much that I did not know before. I experience truths such as, “Fear has been a fact of my life.” Felt as a fact, it no longer seeps into every facet of my existence, and I am no longer its victim.

Without solitude, I would not have seen that truth. Without the company of God, I could not venture into solitude, a place devoid of distraction, where I am face to face with myself.”
For Today Overeaters Anonymous 4 24

Victor Hugo
“To love another person is to see the face of God.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
