As an Interfaith / Interspiritual Minister, she believes we can learn to make wiser choices that create pathways of connection and collaboration to ensure a better world for our children. She resides in Northeast Ohio.


The adventure continues on Little Puddle Pond!

Nellie and Willie stopped their silly goose squabbling, fell head over tails in love, and became a family. To their delight, the following Spring goslings Glossie and Flossie were born!

Big brother Glossie is full of energy and get-up-and-go; however, he tends to gloss over the rules, acts impulsively, and often lands in trouble. Mother Nellie and Father Willie wonder if he has a haywire GPS or Goose-Pause-Setting? While little sister Flossie follows her big brother Glossie everywhere and pays no heed to her GPS either.

One day, Lucy the goose-sitter hatches a wild goose plan to keep Glossie and Flossie out of trouble. Her plan backfires and a scary situation unfolds when the goslings dash off to a place they’ve been warned not to go. A glum Glossie and a flustered Flossie are dismayed by their willy-nilly behavior. Will Glossie and Flossie ever learn to listen?
