Welcome!

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 available in print or eBook form and recently won an Illumination Book Award for exemplary Christian books. Take My Hand Again, a companion guide to encourage those caring for older adults, is also available now. (See BOOKS BY NANCY.)

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.

Speaking

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.
