I am or have used a lot of these resources during the past decade.  All links are non-affiliate unless otherwise indicated. This page will be updated as I find new websites and YouTube channels, or as I finish reading books. 

All links to various resources pages are on this page or you can find them by hovering over the word “Resources” in the main menu.

Resources is divided into different categories and sub-categories.

Nothing will appear on these pages unless I have used the product, read the book, visited the website, listened to the Podcast, and/or watched the video.

Most resources on the pages are Christian because I have a strong belief in God, accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior and depend upon guidance from the Holy Spirit to get me through the day.

These pages are a work in progress so check back periodically for new resources.


Book Reviews – Launch Teams – This page is dedicated to reviews of books where I was a member of the author’s book launch team. I used to participate on launch teams more frequently but have not been on one since early last year. Not sure how many, if any I will be on this year. It just depends upon what offers come my way and if I think the book will be beneficial to you.

Career – Websites that are valuable to your career.

Dating Resource – The only book I recommend when it comes to dating. Valuable advice about online dating for anyone regardless of age. I know the author and his wife.

Music – List of supportive, encouraging and uplifting music. It will include most styles of music, as I grew up listening to everything from Big Band to Opera.

Podcasts – I’ve listened to these in the past but for some reason have gotten away from listening to all podcasts.

Suicide Help Resources – Please, reach out for help. The world would be less wonderful without you.

Websites – A variety of websites covering a wide range of topics.

YouTube Channels and Videos – A list of channels I visit and individual videos.
