A thought from Penny

Hi! I’m Penny.

I’ve been helping people of all ages and stages overcome the challenges of change for nearly two decades. Through life lessons and experiences that have taken me from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows-and through those shared with me from other people’s lives-I’ve discovered the way to bounce rather than break when life hits hard-and the amazing power of grace and choice.

I suppose it’s impossible to have been the mother of five (yours, mine and ours) and wife of a career naval officer and attaché without having a story or two to share-so I write books for children and adults, produce story time videos, blog, and speak. With 29 moves to my credit-from the eastern shore of the USA to Hawaii, Europe, South America, and back, I’ve got a lot of stories to tell. I once moved our entire family from Washington, DC to Paris, France, with three weeks’ notice.

My current address is between a railroad track and a peach orchard where I live with my husband, Bill, a rescue pup from the streets of Charleston, SC named Hunley, and a sweet Border Collie named Sugar, aka Piper.

Life in tiny-town suits me just fine-especially with Charleston and Atlanta just a couple of hours away. I love being able to drive to the grocery store without a single traffic light to slow me down and owning a phone directory thin enough to keep in a kitchen drawer along with the potholders.

I love watering the garden and filling the bird feeders in the cool and quiet of early morning-it’s my favorite time of day. Light caramel lattes from McDonald’s are a favorite, and I can’t pass a Krispy Kreme shop if the “hot donuts” sign is lit. My favorite color is blue unless it’s pink, or purple, or green.

Without a doubt, I love Jesus, my country, and have a real soft spot for military families. I do what I can to support my community, attend a church where members feel more like family than friends, and am a very grateful grandma.

Well, that’s enough about me-now it’s your turn.
