Good news -- at last!

I want to tell you about a website I wish the entire world would read. Over a year ago, my dear friend and fellow Henderson Writers’ Group member Lisa McGlaun created Lifeprints—Good News for a More Compassionate World. In contrast to the page you’re reading right now, which is pretty much a collection of shallow observations and inane rants, Lisa’s blog is a testament to her belief that we can all do our part to make the world a better place, one compassionate deed at a time.

In addition to being a blogger extraordinaire, Lisa is a thin and gorgeous mother of five—the type you’d love to hate if she weren’t one of the nicest people on earth. And she’s a fantastic writer, too. Her manuscript, All Things Temporary, was picked up for representation by a prestigious New York City literary agency about a year ago. The story is a memoir of Lisa's experience as a young foster mother to a troubled teenager. Lisa’s agent is still shopping this beautifully written project to publishers—keep your fingers crossed that someone is wise enough to publish it for all the world to enjoy!

Please check out and bookmark Lisa’s site. Read her archives and see how one beautiful soul is leaving her mark on the world.

Linda,

I love you. Should I tell you that you made me cry, just a little, but actual tears, really..:)

This is one of the nicest things anyone's ever done for me...and poof, just out of the blue for no other reason than you like me as much as I like you.

Big Hugs,
Lisa

I couldn't agree with you more. Lisa is not only an amazing writer, but an amazing person.

Reading her blog is the perfect pick me up when I start to loose faith in the world.

She's the best!

A more deserving gal there could not be. We all do need more compassion, a more giving spirit, and sometimes....a view of life through rose colored glasses. Many of us look forward to seeing what Lisa has written and what she will yet write! Life contemplated from a different perspective is an opportunity to make new and different choices. Each of us do well to ask "How is my life reflecting good?"

Lisa's commitment to spread compassion throughout the world is evident that there are angels among us.

I've had a schoolboy crush on her for over a year now, and my therapist told me that he did not blame me a bit!!!
