Thank you



I’m so glad you stopped by.

Come in. Get yourself a cuppa or a drink and take just a minute to relax and read.

NanaPennypockets is my web name and the story of how I came to it starts off my journey of learning about opportunities.

When I was only 3-4, we would visit with my grandparents. Granny always had cookies and milk ready to tempt us and usually, a big picture puzzle was laid out for us to spend time learning how to put it together. Time to leave and Grandpa would always call us over to him and ask

“Where’s your penny pocket?”

When we showed him, he would always have a bright shiny penny to put in it for us. Oh, how happy we would be. But one time - I remember so clearly - I didn’t have a pocket. Oh, my. Well, Grandpa said

“Too bad. Guess there’s no penny for you today.”

At that ripe age of 3-4, I learned my first lesson in opportunity. The penny was an opportunity being offered to me. But that day without a pocket meant I was unprepared to accept the opportunity offered. You can be sure I had a pocket from that day forward when we visited.

Now I invite you to come along with me while we explore the opportunities that you have every day and how you might be totally missing them.

A Note from Nana

As you wander through this site, you will see that religion plays a significant part in my life and my teachings.  Many people, while they believe in God, think religion is something that can be put off until later years – when they are closer to meeting their maker.

Finding and following the Lord at an early age was one of the greatest opportunities of my life.  Each of us has been created by Him and He would like to help us throughout our lives.  The sooner we accept that help, the brighter our lives become.  I’d like you to believe in Him and invite Him to be a part of your life, but that is a decision only you can make.

As you go through the site, you may think that what is shared and taught is very simple.  I certainly hope so. Simple things are ones that we learn from the fastest and strangely enough, they stay with us.  The site, hopefully, is designed to give you tools, not answers, to how you can explore, discover, and use the opportunities that arrive each and every day.

Opportunities abound in our everyday lives.  I pray as you go through the pages here, you too will discover how many and profound are the opportunities offered to you and how they can change your life.  In addition, as you embrace the opportunities, you become part of making this world we live in a better place.  You are needed.  Find the place where you are meant to be.


Love, Hugs, and Prayers,
