I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, when the going gets tough, the tough get going or maybe they go shopping. I forget which it is. But what about writers? When the going gets tough, they write!

And so I have. GOD, LIFE & HULA HOOPS is the result.book cover

In 2012 I was diagnosed with bilateral brain tumors. Fortunately they were benign. But as I like to say, there are two definitions for benign. One being non- cancerous, the other meaning harmless—which my brain tumors definitely are not!

My life took a dramatic turn with the diagnosis and is still topsy-turvy to this day. In the past four years, I lost all my hearing in one ear and a significant amount in the other. Along with that, my balance has become impaired because of the tumors, giving me mobility issues. I’ve had 2 gamma knife surgeries, been on steroids for months and months at a time; and gone through chemo twice to save some of my hearing.

It’s been difficult, but God has been with me through it all. For the most part I’ve stayed in his peace and joy.

Life isn’t always easy, but there is always hope because God doesn’t leave us alone in our battles. Even before I needed them, God taught me what I needed to stay in his peace and joy, in spite of all the difficulties I face because of the tumors.

How did that happen?

By learning to listen FOR and TO God.

In GOD, LIFE & HULA HOOPS, I share the “spiritual listening lessons” that have helped me face adversity in, what I hope is, a godly way. I may take a light-hearted approach, but the lessons God taught me are not! They are real and they work—at least they have for me!

God still speaks and he can use the oddest things to do so—even a hula hoop!
