Our lives are always changing. It’s all too easy to get swept up in a sea of challenges and entanglements. Our lives can become chaotic, confusing and out of control. But well-thought-out strategies can help us even through the most difficult times.
I have found that to be true in my life. I had brain surgery in 2010. Overnight, I was left with several health challenges that I had no clue how to live with. I had to adapt to these difficult changes and I had to grow to accept these changes. Even now, I must work diligently to keep a positive outlook in order to stay focused on my goals.
Staying focused can be especially difficult after you’ve gone through a tragedy, trauma or some sort of severe stress. One thing that helps me is that I try to make clear choices in harmony with the life I want to live and the person I want to be. I also spend time identifying my strengths and weaknesses and then read about how I can improve in these areas. Doing that helps me see where my focus needs to be.
But, the most helpful thing I do to stay focused is, read the Bible. The Bible keeps me grounded, focused & happy. I can tell you first hand that the Bible is not an outdated book. The Bible has guided me through many difficult challenges and has provided guidance when I’ve needed help to make important decisions in my life. In this ever changing world, the Bible provides reliable guidance & it gives hope of something better.
The Bible even provides guidance on self improvement, acceptance, forgiveness, grieving, keys to happiness, family life, raising children, handling problems and having a peaceful life. The Bible also gives us a beautiful hope for the future. I share the Bible’s message with others whenever I can, because I know how much comfort it can bring.

I enjoy many other activities & I write about some of these from time to time such as: cooking, photography, making jewelry, songwriting and random fun projects – because I’m always into something!
