Ignore the Noise
and Move Forward
In this site, I share stories of Faith, Inspiration, and Motivation. Ignore the Noise and Move Forward does not mean being oblivious to what is happening around us; it means to turn down the volume, reduce the noise around you, and to focus on what is important in your life.
This site and other websites connected to this website are a part of my giving back projects, sharing what I have learned, how I grew in spite of continued adversity. When I was a young teenage girl, I was fortunate to work with women who lived in Europe during WWII. There I learned a phrase I have never forgotten. Don’t “should” all over yourself. Don’t grow older and say, “I should have” done this or that, make a real plan to do the things you want to do, so in your old age, you are not sitting around “shoulding.”
The greatest joy in my life has been my children. You can learn a lot from your children when you listen. My kids were always telling me to listen, and they taught me so much. As the website grows, a portion of this site will host the tools and resources needed for parenting. A lot of times, in life, we hear someone say a phrase that is so valuable – “In order to help the children, we must first help the mother.” In this site, I will change that sentence “In order to help the children, we must first help the parent.”
Today, I have successful “adult” children. I’d love to tell you it was because of me, in reality, it was because of a lot of people who were a part of the village and the understanding of my children that in all labor there is indeed Profit.

What makes a family? Lots of confusion that somehow gets managed….. Every family has confusion, unhappiness, adjustment, baggage & more baggage. And as my husband, Andy says, even your baggage has baggage. But isn’t that life? Our expectations of how our childhood should have been are sometimes quite inflated. Our expectations of our parents or any other…

One of the first things I would train in Sales was seeing beauty. I always say, if you can’t find beauty, something positive in the world and people around you, don’t go into sales. This past January, I was in Las Vegas for a trade show. I posted the Red Rock reflection in the Red…
