Category Archives: Deeply Rooted In Him
A faith based book based on the blog Deeply Rooted In Him. Containing all the posts, but expanded, and some not yet seen. Full of: Miracles, inspiration, verses, hospital visits, close calls, and much more.
How are you today? I am doing well. I am on my third leg of the trip. I left Arizona a few days ago.
Now I am in California.
Exciting right! It is a bit nostalgic for me living out of a suitcase once again for the past two months. Just like I did when I first moved in 2011. As I have been doing so for almost two months with only a week and a half at home in-between. I have been making sure to work on some of my books during my downtime… I’ve been mainly switching between two main books. When, I get stuck on one I work on the other. Apparently, I am not the only writer who does this. I see the challenge of re-writing what I lost as part of a character challenge for myself. I am very determined to get some books done as soon as I possibly can. 🤔 I was gonna participate in NaNo. Obviously, I can’t this year. Funny last NaNoWriMo I was traveling as well… Maybe next year I can join in NaNo. Here is the link if you are interested in participating, or curious about what it is. Good luck, break a pen! https://www.nanowrimo.org/
Why am I traveling you ask? Why not? I love to travel and enjoying time with people. Life keeps everyone very busy but is important to enjoy life. If you are lucky enough to get a chance to spend time with people, especially those you care about you shouldn’t pass that up. Most of the best Christmas movies are about busy people not taking time to enjoy life and time with their loved ones. The main Characters then remember what was most important to them. Then a Christmas miracle happens or Santa gets involved and things get better. If you were in a Christmas movie what would the storyline be? To answer the question seriously as to why am I traveling is mainly because I had the chance to help my sister😀 and to go on the trip I had planned for in July. 🥰 I want to make the most of life and not pass up any opportunities! I do not want to have regrets in my life.
I was planning on doing some live videos along the way, but honestly, I get shy on camera and stumble over my words. So like the picture says I write better then I talk. I am grateful that I have met some awesome people! I love how everyone is unique and awesome in their own way.😄 Along with having new experiencing and seeing new places as well! I met a pretty famous author without knowing it until now. That was pretty neat. As I say famous people are just normal people too.
This is where I enjoyed several days outside listing to birds and getting inspired.
I’m off to go meet up with my handsome man and meet some of his family for the first time.😮 Keep me in your prayers? Thanks! Love you all! God bless you!!😇

It has been a while. I know I missed you. Did you miss me? I have been taking a break from the online world for the most part. Other than some side projects, which I will get into later. I have been really bad and been on facebook more than this blog. I have a lot of backdating to do. (meaning I need to move things I wrote here.) Let us be real. There is a lot I need to update and change here and elsewhere. I know not everyone uses Facebook, Instagram or social media. Thus, I will be working a lot on that and my books.
Moving on to the point of this post, I did a vlog! A video blog… I have been practicing with a side project which I will tell you about next time. Right now tho I would like to share this with you. This came from my heart and was really personal. It took several tries to finish and I was really nervous. Here it is from the other blog and ministry I am doing with people:
Every year or on my other blog I reflect on my life and I write about the growth I have been through. This year I decided to do something different based on the ministry we are getting off the ground. I did my third official Vlog, where I am on camera speaking to you all. I was really nervous. I pray that me stepping out in faith really bless you all. I love you! You Matter! Don’t forget that…
Here are the references she mentioned in the video.

Hello Dear friends,
I ask you a question…. To Scrivener or Not to Scrivener?
It is a writing program I had a long time ago and it has changed since then. I Think it could be a great asset better then most out there… Hmmm. I just downloaded this file for the trial. thought you may like it too watch the video then decide its 40$ to buy but it may be very handy for you. at the end of this video he says their is a 20% off coupon but I haven’t got that far yet. I am half way done I am following text description and watching the video. I had the old version on my old computer and forgot what it was called till last week when I was talking to a friend and fellow Novelist. I have done a bit of research on it and its a little like “Ywrite5” which is free but much more… Just watch the video and decide if this is for you. It is pricey but I feel it is well with it my dear writer friends… I had a house full of people but I will be testing it out this week and will be able to fully to decide… I am wondering what you use if you write… I think this will come in handy with my fictions. Especially with organizations… I get stuck often because I keep everything in one folder for each story and some times that can be overwhelming and I get tired of going back and forth. So I want a handy tool where I can keep my mess and make it neat. I may not have the most organized house but when it comes to writing and my projects I am very organized and picky. I have to say the video and images made me expected something a little more high-tech then what I downloaded. Possibly the trial is 1.o but the the video is 2.0…. I have to look deeper into that when I am more awake….
Here are some links:
*35 min overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DthBJhBrYs
*1 hour and 30 Min: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLXjMLEZ00E
You can get the free trial and buy it here: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener.php
After doing some research I found out why my Scrivener looks different in the videos. I knew it was a mac, and I had my guess they were using 2.0 and I had 1.0 well… I was right…. There is definitely a 20.0 But only for mac users….. So I will be waiting to buy… That’s to much money to put out twice… I’m disappointed…. Oh well….
God bless you today and always!

Let me ask you – How often do you wonder if what your doing has any purpose and meaning? How often do you question what your life is worth? To many people don’t see their own worth…. My aunt as an example. She was a: kind, smart, talented, caring, and fun actress who touched so many people ones she knew and didn’t ever meet. Sadly she never grasped her worth. She was so hard on herself, She would say I wish I could do better or was better. She was a wonderful woman who brought joy to so many. she touched so many lives in such great ways… Yet she didn’t value herself much.
We all live different lives, we all are unique individuals and we all have impact on others. It could be in our: local community; an online community – games, forums,chat-rooms, Facebook, YouTube instagram twitter, work; school; church; family; etc… Anytime you talk to someone else you are effecting or affecting their lives and day in some way. Do you make people smile? Or do you tear people down.. But….. He/she treats me like…… That doesn’t matter your not measuring their worth, you are measuring ours… We have need to take responsibly and be accountable how we treat others. You want to know what your worth is? Look at how you treat others..
We may say: I am who I am? I just want to be myself why do I have to be nice… The bible say treat others as you want to be treated. (Luke6:31) Even if you don’t believe in the Bible or God, it is a good rule to live by. So let me ask you – How do you want others to treat you? Sadly others may not threat you kind and there are some who will never treat you the way you wish they would… But that doesn’t affect your Value! So what if there is one person who doesn’t appreciate you… If you see it or not there are people who you touch.
Lets talk about our appearance next. Are we what society says is: overweight, thin, sexy, tall, short, beautiful, handsome, homely, athletic, etc? What else do they say about us? Wait!!!!!!!! That’s labeling!!! We may fit into one of those categories but that does not define our worth! Those labels can act as boosters or most common as restraints. We tie ourselves down by what others say we are or what we can do. We need to stop doing that. Because let me tell you Your worth is un-measurable, your value is priceless!
It doesn’t matter what you do, how you or how you look. Only you an decide your importance, our value, our worth. We are invaluable, Priceless, irreplaceable, precious, incomparable, unequaled.
I challenge you to do as I am doing: Tell yourself you are important, you are beautiful, handsome, sexy, and awesome! Tell yourself you can succeed and that you wont give up on whatever you are reaching for. DO it as often as you need to and you will start to be happier. We all get emotional and have down days but its just a moment in time, and it will pass. Stay strong and don’t be afraid to talk to others when you need encouragement and support. You have purpose and meaning. No one can be better you, you are un-matched.
I love ya – don’t forget you are awesome!!!
