The Truth About You
Hiking Minnesota with Kids 

Welcome, and thanks for visiting! What you need to know about me is that I’m on a mission to help you understand the full-scale of your power. You are an awesome and intimate part of the Creative God Force that brings into being all things seen and unseen, and as such, you are in charge of everything you think, say, and do. These three tools shape your reality. Only you can change your thoughts, words, and actions if you don’t particularly care for the way your life is going at the moment.   

I’m an “encourager”—personally and professionally. I hate all types of suffering, but I especially hate illness, discouragement, intolerance, and belittlement of self or others. It has been my experience that we can do and be anything we desire. We have the power to create sickness or health, poverty or wealth. We are not victims. We are never alone. All the power and wisdom we ever need is within each of us. We are born knowing this—we have only to remember this is so. We remember by using our talents to the very best of our ability.

Encouragers tell people to do what is in their hearts—the thing that feels right and good to them. Encouragers know this puts a person on their joyful path of true purpose and freedom from fear—the way we are meant to live. Everything improves for a person who knows their purpose. Check out the “Be an Encourager” link for more details about this very worthwhile and necessary profession.

As far as a few more tidbits about me—I’m full-blood Irish; story-telling and a taste for cooked cabbage is in my DNA. I live on a farm with my husband. Our two children ran off to college, then found careers so they could avoid baling hay and painting fences. A former LPN and interior designer, I began my writing career as a weekly columnist for a regional newspaper. I discovered getting paid for ranting in public is tons of fun. Besides family, my major loves are traveling, meeting people, hiking, books, rescuing decrepit Christmas decorations, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I’m a dog and cat person.

Thanks again for sharing your time with me—I’m honored by your presence. If you have a question, comment, or cool thought to pass on, I’d like to hear it. If you'd like to read Mary's Blog, click on this link: Blessings always and peace in your day, your heart, your life…
