About To Reach for the Light and Me…

About To Reach for the Light…

My name is Susan, Blogging and Freelance content writing for various blogs and magazines are what I do for over three years. This blog, To Reach for the Light is a Spiritual, uplifting blog providing inspirational affirmations, motivation, and mental health support. My goal is to let you share part of me and participate in uplifting quotes, images, and short posts while keeping positive thoughts and ideas so that this can be your retreat space and a safe place to spend time whether daily or weekly. This blog is  yours as well, so let me know if you want to see or hear something that I’m not providing.

A bit about myself…

I love writing creatively short stories, flash fiction, and prose and poetry on my other blog, Susans Soul, a Christian blog with content such as Susans Soul Thoughts, Poetry and Prose, and Mental Health Thoughts all from a Christian viewpoint. I’ve written since I could hold a pencil and spell as a child. I am  retired from Nursing with 30 plus years experience as an RN. I also have a Bachelors in Psychology which has been helpful to me working with the elderly, hospice, and counseling through Al-anon for men and women who have been affected by someone else’s drinking or alcoholism. . I currently live in Nashville, TN with my daughter, son-in-law, and my two grandchildren ages 6 and 8.  I am also writing a memoir with a working title of “Toward the Light” about my abusive childhood and how I healed from the trauma. Hopefully, it will be ready for publishing in early spring 2018.

My Educational Background is:
1. Graduated in-1972 Nursing Diploma from Lutheran Medical Center
School of Nursing in conjunction with Valparaiso University
2. 2010-St. Joseph’s College, Maine
Major-BA-Psychology and Nursing Management.

I hope that you enjoy this blog and find it a refreshing place to decrease your stress and get uplifted bringing you back to visit again. I also hope that you didn’t mind me sharing the little about me. Feel free to follow me on Social Media and contact me with any questions or suggestions.

God Bless,
