Have you ever asked yourself these questions:

“Why are bad things happening to me?

Where are you God when I really need you?

Why me, Lord?”


If you continue reading you’ll realize what I eventually realized:

Those are the wrong questions.


This is the right question:

When bad things do occur, what is your purpose, God?



God Nods on His Story About Me describes how I gradually asked the right question and realized God’s answer: God orchestrated the “good, bad, and ugly” experiences in my life to accomplish His purpose for me:

“We know that God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love Him and are called to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)


Whenever I recall the “bad” and “ugly” things in my life, I sometimes still wonder: But Why Me, Lord? No answer makes sense except this one: unless “good, bad, and ugly” things occurred, I could not share His Story About Me – which you are now reading. Looking back on my life with 20-20 hindsight, I know Romans 8:28 is true. This inspired me to write my Spiritual Memoir.


My experiences over eight decades can benefit you – if you’re still answering any of these questions:

  • Are you experiencing true happiness from “Self-centered pursuits”? Are you struggling with “giving up your lifestyle”?
  • What have you Learned – which has to be Unlearned – in order to Relearn?
  • What spiritual insights have you gained from hard lessons learned? Are making painful discoveries from trial-and-error?
  • Do you understand what it means to Become a Born Again Christian?
  • Do you understand all the free gifts you receive when you Become Born Again?
  • Do you think you can Be or Behave “good enough” to merit Becoming a Christian?
  • Do you have intellectual faith to support a saving faith in Jesus? Or, do you have blind faith?
  • Have you accepted what Jesus proclaimed? “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
  • Do you know with certainty that there is no alternative to Jesus – like the apostle Peter proclaims:

Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.” (John 6:68-69)


God gives Christians particular Spiritual Gifts to edify one another. He gave me the Gift of Teaching, which started when my Mom and Dad told me: “You’ve learned what to do. Teach your younger sisters.” I’ve always been a Learner and Teacher. These go together, for the best Teachers are the best Learners.


God enabled me to combine my love of Learning (my avocation) by Teaching this as a professor and corporate trainer (my vocation) – for over 50 years! I’ve always enjoyed the many hours of Learning (reading, analyzing, reflecting, synthesizing, connecting details to the big picture) to prepare for Teaching, where I’ve seen the impact on other learners. So, writing my Spiritual Memoir has been a real joy for me.


God orchestrated His Story About Me so that I can now Teach you what I’ve learned and unlearned and relearned over eight decades.
