Business writer specializing in personnel issues, employee motivation and recognition
Welcome! I'm Allison and I am just so grateful to be living this life. You see, I've always had a passion to write. When I was young, I wanted to write magazine articles and novels. I convinced myself that it wasn't possible to make a living writing, so I majored in business and took every creative writing class that school offered.
I told myself that I would have a "real" job and then could write on the side. So, I got "real" jobs but they were never really what my heart wanted. Then, one day, I got my second chance heard the words that convinced me that I could start over. I left my job a month later and haven't looked back.
We are never stuck where we are, because God gives second chances. Or third chances or... God never counts us out when we feel like we've failed. That's when he holds us up and helps us to start over.
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:
The old has gone, the new is here!" ~ 1 Corinthians 5:17

The best part of being a Feature Writer are the people I meet on a weekly basis and being the lucky person who gets to tell their story. People are truly amazing sometimes. We all go through really hard things in our lives. We don't get to choose what happens to us;
we only get to choose how we respond.
It's that response that can be an inspiration to the rest of us. This story about the local shutterbug opening her own photography studio is one of those stories. As a way of honoring the baby she lost, this young woman makes it her life's work to capture the life story of other families as they record their pregnancies and the birth of their babies.
They come back later, bringing their babies who are growing into toddlers and preschoolers chasing through her studio.
She tells me that she's the lucky one because she gets to tell their story and it's the work that feeds her soul.
We all need to do the work that feeds our soul!
"She's got her father's eyes, Her father's eyes.
Eyes that see the good in things when good is not around; eyes that find the source of help
when help just can't be found.
Eyes full of compassion, seeing every pain;
Knowing what you're going through,
and feeling it the same.
Just like my father's eyes."
When my publisher asked if I would consider writing a column for the newspaper, Amy Grant's version of this song kept playing in my mind as I considered my response.
So, when I agreed, it was to write a column I hoped would be a breath of fresh air and positivity in this world of negativity we find ourselves living in. Now, there's no one whose heart is touched more than mine, as I find and tell these real stories of kindness, gratitude and compassion.
Stories that train my eyes to see the good in things.
