Alene shares her everyday, ordinary life with thousands. Through her writing she captures the hearts of her readers and challenges the core of each soul to slow down and step away from the busy weary life.
Her passion is to see others find the answer to those most frustrating questions “who am I and what is my purpose.” Alene’s message is clear — when you walk slowly to God and listen you’ll hear your purpose and then begin living the life Christ created you to live in your everyday ordinary life.
Alene resides in Corpus Christi, Texas with her husband of 30 years and has three children. Her family has doubled in size within one year to include in-loves and grand-babies. She loves a cool beach breeze, blue jeans, photography, and Starbucks.
Now, meet the Ordinary, but Positively Me . . .
Struggling to know more about this person (me) God created, I became aware of my self-doubt and insecurities of feeling just plain ordinary. I became an ol’ pro at hiding those feelings. I was very good at putting on a mask to cover those ordinary inadequacies and striving to be the best at all I did.
Along the journey God did a major work in my heart. I began to seek God to know who I was and how I could be comfortable “just being me.” I asked all those questions: who am I, what am I called to do, do I really matter, what do I have to offer, and what is my purpose?
God made it clear that He wanted, and still wants, my everyday ordinary life — my beach livin’, military life lovin’, hubby and children huggin’, writing, speaking and picture taking self. He convinced me that He loved me. The striving and pressing hard did not make him love me any more. He challenged me to stop, breathe in fresh air and just be me. So, I took that challenge to live my life as “Positively Alene” leaving all comparisons behind.

As I said above, if you’re struggling with the busy hectic pace you’ve created for yourself, you’ve come to the right place!
