Welcome to my website and short story blog! 

What sort of stories do you like to read? True stories? Tales about people, their struggles and achievements, their pain and joy? Reflections on life and things that are important to you? Stories that bring the past to life? Stories that make you laugh or cry?

Apparently, these are the kind of stories most of us read, like and share online. We are interested in life’s lessons, self-improvement, kids and parenting (and grand-parenting), meaningful relationships, food, local and family history, God and the meaning of life, ageing and mortality. My stories cover these topics and more!

My stories are based on my life experience and ongoing research, people I’ve met, places I’ve been and my family archives. I write about food in the context of family life and history. Some of my stories may touch you deeply. They reveal God’s providence and grace in my life and the lives of special others and the triumph of faith, hope and love over adversity and suffering. Others, like my food stories and recipes, and my “little gems”, pick up everyday themes, are practical and generally light-hearted.

If you enjoy my stories and recipes, please share them. As well, so you won’t miss a single post, you can sign up to receive an email whenever I post a new story on my blog.

Once again, welcome to my site!
