About four years ago, I had the privilege of being invited to join a chapter of P.E.O (Philanthropic Educational Organization) in my area. There aren’t enough words to convey the many attributes of this organization and the women who serve in it. As I think of my fellow sisters, I see their smiles, hear their laughter, and feel the joy and warmth they […]

As someone who has worked with children who have a diagnosis of autism, I was especially moved and inspired by Blake Henkel’s story. Blake is a young man from High Point, North Carolina. While he has limited communication due to an autism diagnosis, he expresses himself beautifully and powerfully through his artwork. Not only does Blake Henkel enjoy painting, but he is also a prolific and successful artist. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to listen to his story, appreciate his lovely, vibrant art…and be inspired. 🙂 See Henkel’s story in this edition of Roy’s Folks. The link is below. http://myfox8.com/2018/01/24/local-man-with-autism-a-prolific-painter/

“Hold fast to what is good.” Romans 12:9 Today is September 8th and my birthday. I’m so grateful for this past year’s journey around the sun. Not because it was perfect and wonderful, but because it was filled with difficult lessons—lessons which really forced me to see, reflect, accept, and grow. And… It. Was. Hard. This may come as […]
