Though I've worked for decades in a public relations, if you ask me what I do for a living, the first thing I'll say is, "I am a wife and mother." I can honestly say I never regretted putting aside my career to raise my four children. But it was not without cost. I sacrificed a well-paying job at Chrysler Corporation, and when I re-entered the workforce, it was to nonprofit work – worthy, but far less lucrative. Administrative staff is a luxury at most charitable enterprises, and my position has been the target of cost-cutting efforts more times than I like to think about.
So now I find myself at a crossroads again, and I've decided to focus on what I love doing - writing. Not journalistic writing, but the type of writing that shines the light on the good, true and beautiful. There's enough bad news out there. I want to write about things that truly help those I am writing about. My subject matter will be inspired by a favorite biblical passage, Philippians 4:8:
“Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
To make a long story short, I am on the hunt for good news to share. Please send me your news tips. And I am available for hire to promote the good news from your business or organization. Thanks for reading my musings!
God bless you,
