Blue Skies and a Park Bench



The words blue skies and a park bench sound wonderful — maybe even relaxing. That’s the title of my new book.  I don’t know if you’ll be able to relax  on those park benches but you certainly will be able to reflect on how things are going in your life. That’s the purpose of the book besides bringing information to you.

Book Update:

Next week I’m conducting two focus group studies. We’ll discuss the book as it is thus far and recommend any changes. We’ll probably discuss the title and subtitle as well. Today I Googled the title and found it wasn’t taken so that’s a relief.  And since the book is a collection of essays, I do have a few more to write! After that it’s onward to discuss the book’s cover, editor, and publisher.  I’ll keep you all in the loop.

Hope your are enjoying blue skies where you are today. We have our first snow fall coming later on. Oh Joy!

Make it  a great day!

God Bless You!

Jesus Calling: A Powerful Thought for Today


While the new devotional book that I’m writing now is different from author Sarah Young’s devotional Jesus Calling : Enjoying Peace in His Presence, read the entry below and think about your present concerns. And as you do, I hope you’ll be lifted up into high places with Him.

Make it a great day!

God bless you!



WHEN YOU ARE PLAGUED by a persistent problem—one that goes on and on—view it as a rich opportunity. An ongoing problem is like a tutor who is always by your side. The learning possibilities are limited  only to your willingness to be teachable. In faith, thank Me for your problem. Ask me to open your eyes and your heart to all that I am accomplishing through this difficulty. Once you have become grateful for a problem, it loses its power to drag you down. On the contrary, your thankful attitude will lift you up into heavenly places with Me. From this perspective, your difficulty can be seen as a slight, temporary distress that is producing for you a transcendent Glory never to crease! – Isaiah 30:20-21, 2 Corinthians 4:17 (AMP)

Nanci Gives Insight into Her Writing

fall leaves for blog

I’ve always loved words. I think it’s because I’ve always recognized their ability to bring about change, give hope, and inspire. My strength and versatility as a writer comes from a combination of elements. These elements include: my creativity, life experiences, variety of job opportunities held in management and otherwise, my interests, and my God-given talent. Having a sensitive yet outgoing personality has also helped my writing to be fresh, funny, tender, and informative when it needed to be. I’m a creative person by nature and I’ve also been blessed with training for my creative abilities in both music and design.

What has helped me to enjoy my craft and be a really good writer? Studying hard and earning my degree in Promotional Communications gave me a great foundation in writing.  My education helped me to be detail-oriented, ask questions, and make sure my facts were accurate. However, this is the most important thing I’ve learned: The secret to being a great writer is to be as concise as possible. Make each word really count. That’s what I strive to do.

Writing my first book “Fresh Hope … Cleveland”  and this blog, have been my greatest accomplishments to date. Currently I’m working on my second manuscript, a devotional book entitled “Blue Skies and a Park Bench.” I’ll be sharing more about this new book in future posts.

I hope you are enjoying this wonderful day!

God Bless You!
