MY CHRISTMAS GIFTS ARRIVED EARLY ON THANKSGIVING WEEKEND

Hi Everybody!

I received messages from so many of you around Thanksgiving and felt so blessed!  Thank you for thinking of my family and me, it means so much!  My Thanksgiving Weekend will be unforgettable this year, although many people that are near to my heart could not be here.

Two of our three children and their families came to be with us for four days . . . wow, what an amazing time we had!  Lots of together time, much laughter, little sleep, and delicious food while we were “counting our blessings!” Read more

GOD’S BLESSINGS ARE ALWAYS WITH US, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS

Hi Everybody!

This communication with you has been so challenging for me this time.  My old computer failed and was inoperable.  So, I bought a brand new one thinking, yay, everything would be fixed!  Wrong, the new computer caught the same disease that the old one had, so now, with the 7th tech support attempt to fix everything, we will soon move on, we hope!

But nothing can ever take my heart away from wanting to stay in touch with you, allowing me to let you know what you mean to me and, also to let you know what a great blessing you are to me!  I send my heartfelt thanks to God, my family, friends & fans, to Radio & my awesome DJs, to my “excellent, loyal” team, and to my business associates . . . you’re incredible, I love all of you!

PLEASE VOTE: IT’S OUR AMERICAN RIGHT, PRIVILEGE & RESPONSIBILITY

Hi Everybody!

This week, I’m so excited to have voted in two different areas that I hold very dearly.  First, I have voted early in the Midterm elections of our great Country.  It is a blessing to be an American, I am grateful every day for my citizenship and understand that as an American, I am privileged to have freedom and the right to happiness with my family and friends, being able to pursue my dreams, and with God’s inspiration and direction, having the ability to control my destiny.  That is powerful.  Right now, there are many things that Americans need to fix and we can do that with our thoughtful voting.  Click here for your polling place locator.

OUR EXCITEMENT IS OVER THE MOON AS WE PREPARE TO RELEASE BOOK TWO

Hi Everybody!

Well, I just can’t contain my excitement about working on projects for you, and yes, there are many! However, I will try, as hard as I can, to focus on just a few for your update this time.

But first, I’d like to comment on how much my family and I are enjoying the cooler temperatures.  I feel so energized to work and be creative.  Again, I’m feeling a nudge from God to get to work!

So now, we’re preparing for the Christmas release of my second inspirational children’s book, “Counterfeit Country Queen Jesus & Nashville Calling.” Officially, we’ll be having a small gathering of family and friends around Thanksgiving to celebrate the second book’s release, what a blessing!  Sometimes God has a perfect timing in mind for us, if we just will take the time to listen.  Since the book is primarily about how Jesus has directed my life and career path, a Christmas release just feels right.

BOOK TWO IS IN PRINTING, SO MANY POSITIVE CHANGES, GOING FORWARD:

GOD IS GOOD AND ALWAYS ON TIME!

Hi Everybody!

Well I must say, fall is coming in with a bang, God is so good!

It is amazing to me how God continues to put wonderful people into my life!  While attending a work party for my husband, we were being entertained by Jay W. Hocutt, a seriously talented singer/songwriter/guitarist. My husband and I came to know him there, and since then, have had several meetings about joining forces for live performances and our offering our help in the recording of his original songs with the magic help of Jay Vern!  You know, sometimes God has planning to show us, if we’ll just pay attention!  We’ll be working to see what we can create from this and will keep you posted!

CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE, OUR COUNTRY’S & MINE:

GRATEFUL FOR THE BEAUTIFUL RELATIONSHIPS & COMMITMENTS IN MY LIFE

Hi Everybody!

I’m overwhelmed with feelings of love, gratefulness, and am so blessed . . . thank you!  All of you are beyond belief in your support of me and I sincerely appreciate you.  I always want to be there for you, just like you are for me!

On a more somber note, today is the birthday of our late grandson, Jake.  When talking about relationships, he really communicated with my husband and me, sort of an “old soul” for such a young age; he has a very beautiful soul.  Happy Birthday, Jake up there in Heaven.  We miss you, but will look forward to seeing you again, in God’s timing!

Hi Everybody!

It’s great to be back in touch with you today; there’s always a lot that I want to share with you!  I already have that feeling that you get when you’re transitioning into the next season and I’m looking forward to fall, with all of the “crisp and cool” days ahead and all of the fun things associated with the season.
