Welcome to my blog. I love to write and by having a blog I can be creative and share just a little of my world with you, literally from anywhere in the world, all I need is an Internet connection!

I love to travel and explore new places, both domestically and internationally. I have traveled to nearly every state within the USA, and several foriegn destinations. Among my next big adventure out of the country is Italy! I don’t know when, but this is on the top of my list of destinations!

My faith in God is also very important to me. I have been a Christian nearly all my life. My father and I were baptized during my junior high school years. I have served in many areas of ministry – children’s ministries, church organist and worship band, library ministry, and many others. I am a member of Salem Alliance Church in Salem, OR. Ministry areas where I serve include the worship band, playing keyboard and piano; choir; and, the leadership team of the Legacy Shepherding Group. I am excited about serving God in this ministry. It has been a couple of years for me since I was involved in a music ministry.

One other area that I seem to find exciting is event and conference planning. I am on the board of directors for Church Ministry Conventions Network, also known as “CMCN“.  Being a part of this non-profit organization allows me to attend conferences, tradeshows and educational opportunities as a meeting planner. My goal when I retire is to be actively involved in this industry. By attending conferences and educational seminars now, I am “getting ready” for this “next career”!  I attended the spring showcase conference in Gatlinburg, TN of Christian Meetings and Conventions Association, LLC, also known as “CMCA“, along with the annual conference of Religious Conference Management Association, in Orlando, FL.

Please visit my blog just to see “where in the world is Dale”! You never know where I might be! I love sharing my life experiences, and this blog is a new way I can share from anywhere in the world! Coming soon – photos!

    Cindy – thank you for the comment on my photos — I hate to tell you but I didn’t take the one you’re asking about! I was in Scottsdale and working on my blog and pulled it off – I think – a great photo site. Feel free to use it but I don’t want the credit for it as I didn’t take it! Sorry about that – have a great conference in Scottsdale, one of my favorite places on earth!!!!
