A Message from Gail:
Life is crazy! (I see you nodding in agreement!) “I am so busy” is the sigh of our day. So many things vie for our attention. We can get so distracted from the very thing that brings life to our souls. We are all at different places on our spiritual journey but one thing for sure….if you are like me, in the midst of your busy, scattered, and exhausted life you want to experience a change that goes beyond tweaking our behavior but a fundamental change deep in our soul. You want to experience the abundant, over-flowing life Jesus promised!
Whether I am speaking or writing, my passion is to invite others into what I have discovered…the being a Christian is not so much about doing, as it is about noticing invitations. I hope you will join me on this life long journey of keeping our hearts attentive and open to the creatively dynamic work of grace in your life!

On a Personal Note
I am blessed with an incredible husband, four amazing adult children and ten darling grand babies. When we are all together, I call it my wild, crazy, wonderful! Life is full in the ways I want it to be full. I love to travel (my favorite place is the place I’ve not been to yet!); I am an avid reader (okay, a little bit more than avid) and I struggle to not let my books take over our home; I love gardening and grow all sorts of berries because my family loves my homemade jam; I enjoy shared meals with good friends, and I especially love riding on the back of a motorcycle with my husband (because you get to wear leathers!).
