When I was growing up, there wasn’t much schooling about feelings and emotions, but more on academics like reading, writing, and math, etc. Learning all the usual school subjects are necessary requirements and we’re also taught about the history, which shows us how far we’ve come. Things haven’t changed that much today, and there’s not as much schooling about how to handle feelings and emotions as we need to manage our lives and to succeed as people. After all, we’re…..

The outrage in the media over gun control and protective mental health to keep our children safe has affected us all. Schools now prepare by having practice drills to protect our children from shooters. We hope and pray the minute our children leave for school that God will watch over them. Today, we’ve learned to pray more. We have to.     As parents, we try our best to put ourselves in the places of those parents who’ve lost a…..

I’m thrilled to share with you that my new novel, Amelia, has just been published! I’m deeply honored by the publisher’s review on the cover:       “Indomitable, a force of nature, a survivor. These are just a few of the words that describe Amelia D’Angelico, the central character in this family drama. A lovely real story, told with warmth in a way that reaffirms how we make our way through. Nagle tells a story with real heart.” –…..

Oprah Winfrey announced on her TV show that Marianne Williamson was lecturing on a Spiritual Journey through Oprah’s XM radio. Marianne invited anyone who had had a transformation from pain to peace in their lives to send their essay through Oprah.com. I went on the Oprah website and submitted my letter. This was my first letter I wrote directly from my heart. To my surprise and delight, my letter was selected from among the thousands and then beautifully read on…..

As an old-schooled mom, I wasn’t familiar and grew terribly confused by the aggressive parenting style I encountered the second time around. But I continued raising my second child in the same way as my first, having learned my mother’s devout teachings “to feel what another feels by walking in the other’s shoes.”…..

“I am beginning to suspect all elaborate & special systems of education. They seem to me to be built upon supposition that every child is an idiot who must be taught to think. Whereas, if the child is left to himself, he will think more and better, if less showily. Let him come and go freely, let him touch real things and combine his impressions for himself…” ‒Helen Keller Those with a formal higher education who have earned degrees worked…..

Have you taken notice to the pleasure and the strain in writing words? To me, the pleasure to connect in the deepest part of your soul with another seems like the closest thing to God. And it’s so important to be clear when choosing words so that others can understand what we feel. Writing a book and blogging have become within reach of most everyone these days. But as an author, I confess that I hesitate to publish even a…..

              I have been very interested in time travel stories and those about life after death, and mysterious, phenomenal happenings from long ago continue to echo on my mind. Since 1976, and to this day, some of my experiences and those of others that I’ve researched remain with me. It’s as though all of this has been going on for a higher purpose, to bring us fully to the present time and prepare us to see that we are not alone, and to share these stories to comfort one another. Mike Dooley, the New York Times…..
