Finding Hope and Forgiveness

During these challenging times when fear and self doubt abound, hope fades. As it becomes a far off memory, it's easy to get lost in the despair. It's easy to give up. Fighting and searching for the answers can be exhausting. Sometimes it just seems easier to just go with the flow and hope for the best. But at what cost? Easy frequently leads us down the exact opposite path of where we need and want to go. It is only when we challenge ourselves to reach beyond our comfortable to do we find what we desperately seek.






Things do happen for a reason. It's just sometimes it's more of a challenge to find the reasons. God saw a Butterfly is a parable of answers to the questions we are afraid to ask. In Shylon's journey through her own fear, guilt, and anger, she becomes a signpost for others to follow on their quest to find the patterns of their lives. As she choose between love and hate, she gives other permission to face their own darkness.



God saw a Butterfly will help those, who seek to understand the challenge of their lives, while giving them hope that is is never too late to forgive or be forgiven.

God saw a Butterfly is available as an Amazon Kindle and as a PDF on the author's website. Proceeds will be used to fund the TV series, Horses and Heroes. Buying the PDF gives more support toward the production costs.





Horses and Heroes is a Reality TV series, which combines the highly effective Peer Support Therapy with Equine Therapy. Unlike most in the genre, it will focus on healing and positive growth rather than endorsing bad behavior. Each season will bring together the veterans from WWII to the current conflicts. They will be sharing their challenges and supporting each other as they find new solutions. They know the talk, because they have walked the walk. They see the dodges and will be able to call each other on them. Sparks may fly. Tempers may flare, especially when they force each other to face the ghosts. But will also be laughter and fun as they rebuild the comradery. The snarkiness and practical jokes between the branches don't simply end. There is always room for just one more. When it airs, it will reach into the homes of the veterans, who need to hear that they are not alone and give them the information as well as the permission to also heal. They will help each other find their way back to the world. Veterans can’t go back and make a brand new start; but they can start from now and make a brand new end.

There is a reason for being


Shylon awakens in her egg. Alone and frightened, she cries. Mother comes to her and calms her fears. Yet, the comfort remains short lived as her fears and guilt force her to doubt herself and those who love her. Each step of the way, she is drawn closer to the truth of her soul. If she finds the patterns of her past and reclaims her ability to love, she will become an Divine messenger, who helps others ascend. If she fails, her anger and guilt will lead her to the one place God cannot go.

God Saw a Butterfly is a transformational parable, which was very loosely inspired by the saying, where a caterpillar sees death, God sees a butterfly.

The proceeds from God Saw a Butterfly will be used to produce the TV series, Horses and Heroes. Combining Peer Support with Equine Therapy, Horses and Heroes will empower veterans to heal and reclaim their lives.




God saw a Butterfly is available as an Amazon Kindle and as a PDF on the author's website. To learn more about Horses and Heroes and to buy God saw a Butterfly click here.

Finding your destiny


The Awakening

She awoke and squirmed a little. But only a little for there was very little room. She looked around. She saw no one and nothing. She was alone. Frightened, she began to cry.

“What is it my child?” A soft voice whispered. “Why do you cry?”

Even more frightened, she tried to look around, yet she could not move. She still saw no one. “Who are you?”

“I've been known by many names.” The voice replied. “Most call me Mother.”

“Why?”

Mother chuckled. “Because Little One, from me all life comes. To me all life returns to rest until it is once again time to be born to learn and grow. Just you are doing now.”

She pondered. “Who am I?”


God saw a Butterfly is a transformational parable of one soul's journey into awareness. Proceeds will be used to fund the TV series Horses and Heroes. It is available as a Kindle as well on Horses and Heroes' website.

Are you as small and powerless as they want you to be?


 I'm too small to make a difference. This is a belief people use not to get involved and make a difference. It is only a perspective. People are as great or small as they believe they are. It sounds simply yet it is the difference between successful people and those who fail to try to achieve.

This self-defeating belief is frequently reinforced by others. They use it to control individuals and groups into supporting their agenda. Usually the pattern begins in childhood with parents using manipulation and in some cases physical force to impose their will. Whether consciously or sub-consciously, they teach the message that it is permissible for others to control you if they are bigger and stronger. They effectively steal you power and ability to fight for your self esteem. This message continues into adulthood with the friends and partners we choose. How we feel about ourselves is reflected back to us with the people we invite into our lives, because they reinforce both our positive and negative self speak.

Media campaigns have been designed to make people insecure in order to create a demand for a product. Shaming and blaming creates the insecurity they need to influence the consumers' spending habits. The weight loss industry is a prime example. Those companies promote the message that over weight people are lesser than thin people. They can't be loved, happy, or successful. But if you buy their product you will loose weight and suddenly you will have and be all those wonderful things. This is the common marketing theme. Want to be cool?--Buy our car. Wear our clothes. Eat at our restaurant. Use the latest tech toy. Yet no matter how much you buy, it will never be enough, because they are always upgrading and creating new products, which makes what you own obsolete and no longer cool. Only by buying the latest product will you be able to reclaim your cool you. It is a vicious, never ending cycle for as long as you believe their messages and buy into their agendas.


Power seeking people achieve their goals by creating an us verses them mentality. It gives one group permission to blame another person or group for their lot in life, which helps them avoid taking responsibility for their words and deeds. But it is a double edge sword. Pointing fingers at others deflects responsibility, but it also gives away personal power. If the other person or group is accountable for what you say and do that means they have more control over your life than you do. This blame game also effectively isolate individuals and groups Those, who feel alone and powerless, can be easily manipulate and controlled through their need to sit at the cool kids table. When that status is threatened, they will do or say whatever is necessary to protect that bond.


You are too small to make a difference if you allow yourself to believe it. If you think size really matters you've never been alone in a closed room with a fly or a mosquito. Everyone has the power to change their destiny if they choose to believe in themselves. Whether it be directly or indirectly, an individual, standing in her or his own power, also uplifts and empowers all the lives she or he touches. We are the difference. We have the power to create change or stagnation. We only have to believe that we can in order to do.
