Preface to Out of Three Suitcases

Starting over wasn’t in my plan. Yet there I was, alone, with all I owned in three suitcases. I got a quick lesson in how bad things can happen through no fault of our own. I blamed myself for making a poor life partner choice. I prayed. I took stock of what I hadn’t lost. Then I moved on. Read the life lessons I've unpacked for you on my blog. Here you will find personal lessons and stories which can be applied universally about mentoring, the power of saying "thank you", giving back to the community, and more.
