Shine the Divine:

Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.


October 26th is the 30th annual Nashua CROP Walk, taking steps to ease hunger locally and around the world. This year I too will be walking. Not long ago I was in a wheelchair and could not have walked. I hope you will join me on this journey with a secure online donation. My intention is to reach a modest goal of $300 in the next few weeks. Please click here to participate; $10, $5, every dollar helps, your generosity makes a difference.


Update: In the first two days of posting this, my intended goal of $300 was met! Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. With such tremendous generosity and kindness, we’ve now raised just over $500... please keep the love and donations flowing.

~ Laura give a little is never enough still it is something.
