Hi, my name is Doris and I want to welcome you!

This blog is about encouraging, equipping, and engaging others to walk deeper in faith and seek the truth. Learning through community is an amazing thing and your voice matters.

We are finding encouragement through God’s Word and using our gifts and talents to make a difference in the world.

We all have a sphere of influence. God places us where we are for a reason…

After a 29-year career in the banking, I can honestly say we can grow wherever we are planted. I currently work for my church and serve as a women’s group leader and Christian lay counselor. I am a writer, speaker, and author who loves encouraging others to flourish in their calling and purpose.

God has plans for each one of us, isn’t that exciting? God knows us personally and He is calling us to know Him.

I typically write blog posts weekly, sharing about common joys and challenges we face every day. My hope is to share valuable and helpful information because I feel learning is essential to growth.  I encourage your comments, because you may share what someone else needs to here.

I blog about:

  • Inspirational topics
  • Learning and personal growth
  • Encouragement for family life, work life, and just plain life
  • Ways to overcome the overwhelming through God’s Word
  • Difficult seasons and circumstances, and how God carries us through
  • Relevant ways to apply truth to our every-day lives
  • Encouraging ways to use spiritual gifts to share God’s truth with others

A wife, mom, and soccer Gammy, I stay joyfully busy. You might find me hanging out with the kids in the tree-house or shooting hoops. I love to read, travel with my awesome hubby of over 33 years, and cook for the whole gang. Not much of a baker though, but I’m working on it!




One of my favorite quotes is “You are never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream.” ~ C.S. Lewis

  1. Doris,

    Just found you from (In)Courage. Where in Florida do you live? I lived in Brandon, FL-outside Tampa for 20 years from 73-95. Now I live in Upper E. TN near the NC, VA border. We have beautiful mountains here and the weather is usually not as hot & humid as FL.

    Blessings 🙂

    1. Hi Beth! I live in Southeast Volusia area in Edgewater south of New Smyrna Beach. It must be lovely where you live now! I prefer cool myself since originally from NJ, but hubby was born and raised in Florida. I still miss the “real” season changes after all these years. I can still visit snow and fall leaves elsewhere, so that’s a good thing! Blessings to you as well, my friend! Thank you for taking time to read and comment on my post. 🙂
