Christian Inspirational Writer and Motivational Speaker
God has had me on a path for more than 30 years. The path is to cultivate spirituality in myself and others. This includes writing and sharing Christian inspirational stories and speeches. Much of my writings come from being still and listen to what God is saying and asking.
Since childhood, I have felt a special closeness to the Holy Family. My birth initials are JMJ. I have known, without any doubt that Jesus, Mary, and Joseph are with me always.
I have published three books. Two are non-fiction and one fictional novel. The latter was an entry in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (ABNA) writing contest. My books are sold through CreateSpace (publishing company and subsidiary of Amazon) and Amazon.

I feel called to nurture spirituality within myself and others. Writing is one way I follow my call. Speaking is another.
For five years I was part of various teams for Beginning Experience retreats for divorced and widowed Catholics. I was actively involved for five years with Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) renewal weekends at my home parish, another local parish, and when introducing CRHP to parishes in my Archdiocese.
For another five years I worked with the United Way as a Torchlighter Speaker conveying my personal experiences as a recipient of United Way services.
As an accomplished Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM), I have participated in a wide variety of speaking engagements and facilitation experiences. Structuring interactive workshops and delivering content are activities I find highly enjoyable.
