  Jean describing her book of poetry “Sandprints At Ebbtide”   I hope the readers of “Sandprints at Ebbtide” will find these poems, songs and Scripture passages a source of faith and inspiration in confronting the painful life lessons of aging, loss, perceived failures and even death, both for themselves and those they love. Faith guides us to a place of comfort and peace as we reach for meaning and consolation. These poems explore my personal life challenges in the light of God’s grace and redemption. Mother Julian of Norwich summarized all this for me in her still...

I became a mom and an entrepreneur at the exact same time, April 29, 1985, at 8:52 p.m. The moment they put that first baby in my arms I knew I was not going back to a J-O-B I hated, so I just started a business. When I gave my notice to the company I worked for, they offered to put a computer in my house (in 1985 no one had home computers), make me an independent contract, increase my pay, put a computer in our home, and let me work from home. I was one...
