"Bethie's Place"

I love reading, writing, and books!! Come on in and relax awhile!!!

I’m a published author!

Sorry it’s been so long since you’ve heard from me, but I’ve been very busy!! ūüėÄ While I’ve been away, I took a short online course on how to write and publish what are called “low content” books. Once the course was over, and I found the courage to dive in, I published two books on Amazon. com. this past week.

Now this is where I need your help. The two books are blank journals and can be purchased in Kindle or paperback format. The first one is titled, “Don’t Let Your Disability Define You”, and the second, “Food and Health Journal”.¬† To find them, you can either search by my name, Beth Casey, or by title.¬† It is my goal to get both of these titles in as many hands as I can, particularly the first one. If you would be so kind to check them out, and if you know someone who can benefit from either to buy it as a gift or if you work in the medical field or know someone who does, rehabilitation center/hospital,¬† to buy it in bulk, I would be very grateful for your support! More books on the way this coming week! Stay tuned!!

A Message To My Readers

Over the past five years my life has taken many twists and turns healthwise which kept me from updating my website here at WordPress as often as I had hoped. During my most recent health crisis (2018) there was one man who kept my spirits up with encouraging words, prayers, and at times, simply silence. He is my best friend, my cheerleader, and the love of my life. Robert, you’ve been beside me through many moments of frustration, discouragement, anger, sadness and most recently unimaginable joy as we became husband and wife on September 29, 2017. ¬†As I reflect on your words of encouragement, love and support, this song came to mind. Thank you for teaching me and reminding me on a daily basis that no dream is impossible. I love you to the ends of the earth and for eternity.


New Titles Published

Hello everyone! I’ve been very busy these past two weeks creating more books on Amazon.com that I hope will¬† be of interest to you. So far, sales are real slow, but I’m told that is typical of new authors, and I continue to be hopeful that sales will pick up this month.¬† I hope one of these titles will be of interest to you or as a gift for someone.¬† Also for those who will be celebrating Lent at the end of the month, I am currently writing¬†a Bible Study for you to follow along your journey toward Easter. My books can be found at the links below:






So friends and followers, until next time, wishing you all a great day filled with lots of love, laughter, and rest. ‚̧ "Bethie"

Happy New Year!!!

¬†On the eve of not only a new year, but a new DECADE, I pondered what words I could share as wisdom, food for thought, or a prescription for anyone who is seeking a new beginning, a new chapter, or a new calling on their life. It is my fervent prayer that your life is filled with love, laughter, prosperity, friendship and good health!!! God bless you, and together, let’s make 2020 AWESOME!

It is my hope and prayer that reading this article from iBelieve.com will help those who have loved ones with mental health issues as well as those who suffer in silence. I suffer from PTSD and depression, and for a long time I suffered in silence.

Happy Hanukkah!

Hanukkah, which is Hebrew for ‚Äúdedication,‚ÄĚ is the Festival of Lights.

It commemorates the victory over the Maccabees over the Syrian Greek army, and the subsequent miracle of rededicating the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and restoring its menorah, or lamp.

The miracle of Hanukkah is that only one vial of oil was found with just enough oil to illuminate the Temple lamp for one day, and yet it lasted for eight full days.
