Welcome! I started this blog in 2008. Blogging comes naturally since much of my professional life has been spent in writing, organizing, sharing, and teaching, using networked computers at first, and the Internet later on. In fact, I just found an old blog of mine for mentoring students - ASC Online! I can't stay away from social media, for long I guess.

Peaceful, life-transforming revolutions are very much a part of my life. Long before the term downshifting was coined my family and I were living it; no, it is not about stick shift driving but a slow lifestyle, a revolt against the American dream rat race :). Now, I've joined the ranks of indie authors and publishers.  and am experimenting in several genres: Garden of Grace: A Daybook of Faith and Healing, Casa Charis: A Daybook of Freedom (devotionals), Ocean of Grace a modest literary collection and Path of Grace my first children's book.

Peace and Grace,

  1. Hi Anita,
    It was a pleasure for Trina and I to meet you at the Big Tent conference in Louisville. We will be reading your book and hope to keep in touch with you. Hope you can visit us sometime on our farm with all the critters in southern Indiana.

    1. Omg, Wendell, I am so excited! Your note made my day!!!! Still playing a bit of catch-up as I re-enter life after Big Tent. Yes, definitely keep in touch and I would love to visit all the lovely critters and their magnificent keepers. Please give my love to Trina and save some for yourself too. I will email shortly, A

      P.S. I am smiling from ear to ear much like Trina in the photo I captured of her and which I was looking at yesterday!


Thank you for visiting, reading, and sharing your insight and feedback. I appreciate it very much. You time is very precious as is your generosity in taking the time to encourage me with your comments. Blessings, a
