    Headed Back to The 700 Club!

    It was great to see Terry Meeuwsen in person again. It’s been nine years since my last visit to the 700 Club. Time flies. I also got to be on the “Social Sistas” at CBN! Link here. I’m in Virginia Beach, VA today at the beautiful CBN headquarters. Story here. This interview and this article were from nine years ago! I had moved from FL to LA to try to start my career again at age 48. Instead, I fell […]

  • My New Book:  “Lavender Hair” –  my breast cancer journey

    My New Book: “Lavender Hair” – my breast cancer journey

    My new book, “Lavender Hair,” is similar to the late great Christopher Hitchens book, “Mortality,” in that we wish we would have lived healthier lifestyles, cancer is boring, pain pills are fabulous, and death feels closer when you’re on a chemo drip. We disagree on whether or not there is a God waiting to meet us face to face when we die. Hitchens believes there is no God. I believe there is a God who cares, loves us individually, and […]

    My Daughter’s First Published Book! – “The Weekly Prayer Project” !

    I’m so proud of my daughter Scarlet whose first book is being published and available July 4! And, it’s a book about God! How awesome! It was brought to the attention of Harper Collins by a beautiful woman named Katie, that a Pasadena-born, NY/Miami-raised, Tennessee stay-at-home mom, who was named after a color in the Bible, Scarlet, and after the romantic lead in Gone With the Wind, was writing a blog – link here. Harper Collins then assigned Scarlet Hiltibidal […]

    Song Writing Camp!

    I highly recommend Justin Peter’s (Songsfortheplanet.com) Songwriting Camp! It was my first time and I loved it! I usually write alone. We came up with over 25 songs. We were at a beach house in Wilmington, NC. Most of us were strangers but now best friends for life.

  • Last Cancer Treatment Today!

    Last Cancer Treatment Today!

    A BIG Thank you to all the doctors, nurses and technicians whose loving care, kindness and beautiful faces and hearts I’ll never forget! I asked the sweetheart technicians if I could take a photo with them. As I was leaving, Vicki the awesome nurse handed me my Certification of Completion of Radiation. I started to cry. She said, “You deserve to cry, you’ve been through a lot. Some people even have their friends and family with balloons in the lobby […]

  • Eric Metaxas: “Whatever happened to “Virtue”?”

    Eric Metaxas: “Whatever happened to “Virtue”?”

    Eric Metaxas, author of “Bonhoeffer” and a new book, “If You Can Keep It,” is urging Christians to get involved – or they will lose their freedom, they will lose their country…the name “America” may stay, but there will be nothing inside. He said America is not an ethnic group but an idea – “self-government.” It had never been done before in history, not even the Greeks (Eric is Greek)… who had little city-states. Eric said that all of our […]

    Finished Chemo Today! Start Movie Tomorrow!

    Today, May 9, 2016 – finished the prescribed chemotherapy for breast cancer treatments – Jan. 2016 to May 2016 – 4 rounds of Red Devil and other one (I always forget the name) that knocked me down, then 12 rounds of Taxol which wasn’t too bad…I can’t wait until my hair grows back. Very excited to be starting a new movie role tomorrow in my month off before six weeks of radiation begins. The movie is “Andy’s Rainbow” and I […]

  • New Original Song: “It’s a Broken World, Baby!” on Rusty Humphries Show

    New Original Song: “It’s a Broken World, Baby!” on Rusty Humphries Show

    I was briefly on the Rusty Humphries radio show April 7 and he asked me about my cancer. I said it wasn’t so bad. Then, he asked me if I was really happy or just faking it. What a great opportunity I had to share the good news of Jesus Christ…and I blew it! I said something stupid about wearing pink wigs. In my defense, my 87 year old Dad had just been taken to the E.R. in an ambulance […]

  • He’s With Us in the Flames (great sermon)

    He’s With Us in the Flames (great sermon)

    8 Chemos down, 8 to go… but who’s counting? “The promise is not I (God) will put out the fire. The promise is I will be with you in the flames.” – @howertonjosh @TheBridgeSH Here is a fantastic sermon, “God in the Fire” by Josh Howerton from The Bridge Church. It’s about pain, suffering and God. (http://bridgesh.com/media/podcast/20160313.mp3) In Daniel 3, when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the fiery furnace, “… King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in […]
