I'm a writer. Was a teaching nun for sixteen wonderful years. Afterward, was blessed to marry a homeless man who had lived on the street for a year. His values, his faith in life, his blessed aliveness brought a joy and confidence into my being. He deepened my understanding of the beauty of life's issues. As a result, (since money became such an issue) I wrote a book on the spirituality of money, Money As Sacrament. I am a speaker and offer groups talks on money life, spirituality, and leadership. And I'm so glad you asked me about me.
