These have been difficult and unusual times, and my heart goes out to the world, especially those who are suffering. This has also been a time of reset, being hemmed in, as we readjust our lives and priorities. Wishing the best for you all.

A new year! I love the space between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Not only does it give you time to reflect over the past year and take stock, it also opens the door to all the potential that lies ahead.
My top goal for 2020: finish my book on autism!

“Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans.” –Isaiah 1:17
Some people have a life verse or quote that really grounds them, and/or defines a path they would like to take. For me, it is Isaiah 1:17. It helps me remember that we have to “learn” to do good. It’s a process and a deliberate act. I also love the verbs in this quote: learn, seek, help and defend.
Think about what inspires you and start to act on it! Have a wonderful week!
