The Whisper Within

" Believing that God powers strange coincidences and the journey that lies ahead."

The Whisper Within


What is the whisper within?

Some say we all have that little nagging voice that tells us right from wrong. It is the gut feeling you have deep inside your soul that something just isn’t right. Some call it a sixth sense or is it a sick sense? It is your conscience? Do you believe we all are born with a good and righteous morality? Or ethics? Are you capable of listening to your heart? To your soul? Do you believe in dreams? Or in signs?

So what is the whisper within?

I believe it something different. Something extraordinary.

Something that cannot be simply explained through a Google search or Wikipedia entry but through a life being led.

At this stage of my life, after journaling a decade of “strange coincidences”, I feel compelled to open the tattered, beat-up, spilled on, read and reread pages of my journals and share the recollections of “the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I Believe GOD powers strange coincidences and the journey called life. This will be a weekly blog of  stories that inspire hope, love, forgiveness, and anticipation of the joy that lies ahead.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I have been single for the last twenty years raising my two beautiful children, Jake ( 26)and Tarah (25). I am a originally from Chicago but by listening to “The Whisper Within” I have recently moved to Southern California. I love to run, hike, bike, swim, and practice core yoga but have been sick for the last few years fighting Lyme disease. GOD will heal me but in the meantime, I choose to be happy and not settle for ordinary. I believe in the Fairytale, crave the butterflies, and surrender that God has the plan. Follow me on FB at The Whispers Within.

  6. HI Lisa – now I understand why you would find my novel, Casey’s Story, so intriguing. Life is complicated and sometimes God must block some road to show us the pathways He knows our best for us. What we do and how we react is all part of the adventure!

    I am thrilled you are now following my blog and know we will become great friends in the coming months. Thank you for your kind words regarding my books and I can’t wait to read more of your posts my new friend. Blessings back,


  7. The older I get, the more I’m convinced that there are few real coincidences in life, particularly for the man or woman whose heart is searching diligently for God.


  8. Thanks for following me Lisa! I actually don’t think that they are coincidences, I believe they are purposefully designed by God, his providence. I have seen his hand of providence throughout my life, and yes, one might call them coincidences, but hindsight makes me know it was God’s purpose. In that I rest. Beautiful post. Thanks for sharing. Your post today makes me want to try going out to a baseball game. I admire your passion for baseball. It reminded me of the movie, Trouble With The Curve.


  9. You are right. Just need to find right agent / publisher. Still searching…


  10. Hi Lisa, it looks like you don’t post much any more but I sure enjoy hearing from you. I’ve nominated you for The Light of the World award which you can recognize and post anytime in the future, no big deal. I just thought your strength of character and your positive attitude needed to be praised! Many blessings back my friend, ❤
