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!  That being said, there are times we need to discuss things happening in our society that are not necessarily “warm and fuzzy”. That is OK! We can have discussion about difficult issues respectfully, navigate with each other across the issue and come to a place of understanding if not agreement!

We do not have to be divisive and create discord, no matter the subject!

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, survivor stories…. 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
