Are you being Called to greatness?

Life is a mystical and magnificent mystery. But "everyday" experiences can get our eyes off the truth about our personal journey. Yet, it is the "every day" that is showing us the way. How do we know, how can we see? When I finally realized, in my own heart, that I was on a powerful [...]

Reverently and Wonderfully made…

No matter what, no one can take the memories: Aftermath of 9/11

Kimama’s Wings

Kimama's Wings is a story that touched my heart while I was living in Los Angeles trying to get Sacajawea produced.

I remember my vision from when I was a young girl –

From Sacajawea, The Windcatcher – A Novel by Jane L. Fitzpatrick “I saw myself sitting on a narrow strip of land that seemed to never end, weaving along the edge of the sea. Water crashed and climbed over the sand, again and again, creeping up higher toward me. A mist hung in the sky and [...]
