Thank you for wanting to know more about my life and work.
Life is a journey, and this revised website signifies another step on the journey God has so graciously given me. For several years now I have felt Him leading me to focus my writing and speaking, as well as my volunteer time, toward the growing population of older adults in our country and the Baby Boomers who care for them. In response, I will have two blogs running simultaneously on this site: my longtime column “Back Porch Break“ now updated to the blog format, and the new category “Take My Hand Again,” dealing with issues and topics for those caring for older adults.

About Nancy's Presentations
It’s been said that some people are speakers who also write while others are writers who also speak. Nancy is primarily a writer, but she loves to share the messages the Lord has put on her heart with audiences who can relate to them—and her warm, conversational presentation style has been enthusiastically received over the years.
Currently she is developing a training session for volunteers willing to facilitate a devotional hour in an assisted living facility utilizing her devotional guide, The Hope of Glory. She is also developing a motivational talk for those tasked with caring for older adults. Be a part of helping Nancy spread the word about this new ministry focus.
