Real Connection


I love to write and share the messages on my heart. Yet there is nothing better than when I come out from behind the computer and share my stories with others in person.  

Yesterday I had a wonderful morning at Storytellers Cottage reading A Place for Sam to a number of children.  Their interest and engagement warmed my heart as they listened to Sam’s message. A couple decided to hop on my lap as I read💝 

Yesterday confirmed something that has been on my heart for a while.

There is no substitute for human connection.

As much as I write and connect with people online, connecting with people in person is fuel for the soul.  Whether it’s a tea date or walk with a friend or I am sharing the messages on my heart at events like yesterday, I need to get out and connect.

The same is true for our children AND for us as adults. We need to connect with others in person, not just through screens.  Whether it's at home, school or at work, let’s get up and connect with one another.  Yes it may not be convenient but it may actually fuel your soul - and which is more important in the long run? Convenience or real connection?

I share this with you today from my own place of needing to make the time for connecting with others in person.

Maybe you can relate?

I invite you to join me to...

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

And let’s choose real connection over convenience. For at the end of the day, and our lives, it won’t be a screen we want to have beside us.

With love and hope,
