Thank you for wanting to know more about my life and work.

For several years now I have felt the Lord leading me to focus my writing and speaking, as well as my volunteer time, toward the growing population of older adults and the Baby Boomers who care for them. I’m happy to report some exciting progress in this new stage of my life. The Hope of Glory, A Devotional Guide for Older Adults, is now available! (See BOOKS BY NANCY.) Take My Hand Again, a companion guide to encourage those caring for older adults, is in progress and should be released by Kregel Publishing in 2015.

While you are visiting this site, please consider subscribing to my BLOGS, “Back Porch Break,”my former newspaper column transformed into a blog, and “Take My Hand Again,” dealing with issues and topics for those caring for older adults. Subscriptions are FREE, but enable you to get new posts in your Email inbox. I welcome new readers in both BLOG categories and love replying to readers’ comments.

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.

She recently developed a training session for volunteers willing to facilitate a devotional hour in elder care facilities 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.
