I am excited to announce that FHoV will be the feature presentation for the Flushing Book Club on Tuesday, March 19, 2019.
I would like to thank Brenda Boyce from the Gladwin Church of the Nazarene for inviting me to be the keynote speaker for their Ladies’ Night Out Event. Prayer was the topic for the night. We discussed the types (vocal, meditative, contemplative) and forms (praise, thanksgiving, intercessory, contrition) of prayer. I shared the lessons I learned and how prayer brought glimmers of peace to our distraught family throughout our Vegas Crisis. The ladies were wonderful hosts. The food was delicious, the fellowship was warm, and music was uplifting!
Finding Hope on Vegas is a featured story in the Everyday Miracles section of the Catholic Digest E-magazine. I am very grateful to Lori Hadacek for such a nice story. To view the story click here.
I was invited to be a keynote speaker for St. Mark the Evangelist Parish Advent Tea Luncheon this past weekend. I am humbled by the warm reception I received. The atmosphere was beautiful as our hosts carefully prepared the hall for this wonderful occasion-fine china, real silverware, excellent tea and the food…to die for.
As we reflected on our topic, Prayer, I was moved by the stories people shared with me and how prayer affected their lives. God is God!
Thanks to Mary MacFarlane, Mary Dobias and Deb Foerster for the invitation and all their hard work! It was a great way to start Advent!
A big shout out to Cherie Sanderson from the Boulder Junction Library for hosting Finding Hope on Vegas. I am very thankful for the opportunity to speak about this miraculous story to such wonderful community! If your local stop by and say ‘Hi!’
If you have never been to Boulder Junction, Wisconsin, I encourage you to visit. There are so many friendly people in this quaint town. Craig and Jane, owners of peeplelures, always make a visitor feel at home while Denny and Ellen from the McCann’s Wine Bar provide the best atmosphere for the weary traveler. There are so many talented artists in the area who are more than happy to share their craft with visitors. I highly recommend a visit, you won’t be disappointed!
Kind of exciting…branching out to a
different state! See Ya in Wisconsin!

It was a full house! Approximately three hundred and twenty people attended this year’s Pediatric Trauma Conference in Detroit last Thursday.
I was able to meet some fantastic people and hear some remarkable stories. God is good!
I would like to thank the Committee for inviting me to speak. It was a great opportunity not only to share a success story, but also encourage and thank doctors, nurses, paramedics, etc. for all that they do to save people’s lives.
I had a lovely afternoon on Friday, May 18, 2018. BCLS invited Finding Hope on Vegas to their Booked For Lunch event.
There was a nice turnout and some great discussion about God and miracles after the presentation. Because many people lingered to talk, the cleaning crew patiently waited for me to finish the book signing. They simply smiled and said ‘No hurries.’ What a great crew!
As a bonus, some family and friends I do not get to see very often came.
Thanks to the Booked for Lunch Staff at Alice and Jack Wirt Public Library for a wonderful day!
