Hi, I’m Alana and I welcome you to my little space on the www. Thanks for stopping by. I started a blog to celebrate my first devotional book and because I am a reader and a writer. I love words. Even the ones I have not met yet!

Words can be powerful and inspire us, or hurtful and tear us down.

There is already enough negativity in this world today and I think we should always use our words to encourage, inspire and delight!

There are many things that inspire me: good coffee, books, babies, puppies, Labrador Retrievers, Pekingese dogs, mutts, mermaids, beautiful beaches, funny t-shirts, jewelry, shoes, sushi…. the list goes on and on!

I have also been an nurse for over 25 years. I love being a nurse and am fascinated with how our mental environment affects the physical as well as all things related to nursing. You will find a lot of my nursing stories here as well.

I would love to hear about what inspires and encourages YOU so- get in touch!

Please feel free to reach out on Facebook or Twitter. Or connect through comments or email me at Alana.haase@yahoo.com.
