A Newfie Stage

Grown in the rocky soil of Newfoundland, I’m familiar with stages. Attached to a wharf, at the water’s edge a fishing stage tends to be a smelly place. After the fisherman (or woman) secures the boat to the wharf, he brings his catch into the stage and takes out his sharp fillet knife. Off with the head! Scrape out the guts! Rinse the whole mess down through a huge hole in the floor. All the unwanted parts – sent to fishy heaven, from whence they came.

But, as attractive as I made that sound,

this is not THAT kind of STAGE…

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts…”

– William Shakespeare

My Stage

I’m a Bible-believing, hand-clapping, Jesus-loving Christian. If I’m doing it right, that puts me on a stage. Every day is a performance. That’s not a career choice – that’s a fact.

How I choose to be seen by others and who I prioritize in my audience – those are choices.

In this blog I plan to share my experiences in my Life Performance as a daughter of God and to challenge you to view your life in a similar way. Are you ready for the curtain to rise?

Step into the spotlight, Daughter of God!


I have prepared an audio series of prayers/meditations to help you grow in your love for God. Take 5 each morning this week to stop and refuel with your heavenly Father.

Please join my monthly mailing list to receive this 7-day prayer/meditation audio series, Stop and Refuel.

Success! You're on the list.
