Simply Beverley is about sharing events, stories, poetry and interesting pieces of the puzzle of life that I have experienced and come across on a day to day basis as I connect with women who have lived similar life experiences to myself.

The header collage reflect my current interests and activities.


Often the pieces of life’s puzzle gives us solutions that can puzzle even the best of us. Sometimes the pieces fit together and we find solutions to help us complete our puzzled lives. I am finding that as the years roll on there are fewer pieces left to fit in their place.


I hope the content of this site resonates with middle aged (without giving too much away) women like myself. Women who are full of energy, hopes and goals. and she is searching for truth. Although she has been a bit weathered and battered by life, she is able to pick herself up, dust off the past and move forward again toward her new future. Be it divorce, illness or loss, she learns from her mistakes, she is not afraid to up-skill, laugh and love again. “It is never too late to start over” is her motto.

About my pages…

S.I.M.P.L.Y. is my business values with a link to my Finance and Mortgage Broking posts on Linkedin and facebook.

My Poetry  is a collection of the poetry I have written over the years that I believe reflects the Simply Beverley woman.

TaMaR means Telling Accurate Memorable Accounts of Relationships. It is a work in progress of Story Telling – ‘Women in the Bible‘. These stories include background information relating to true stories of these historical women.

Simply Family…

I was married and raised two daughters in a  big house in a northside Brisbane suburb. Then I was divorced and lived in a small house in a small country town 1 hour west of Brisbane. Now I am re-married with extended family, including grandkids, that live up and down the East Coast of Australia. I am loving life, home alone with my hubby, in a small unit close to the city centre of Brisbane.

Simply Career….

I started my working life in banking. Then studied Beauty Therapy. I enjoyed working in my networking Skincare and Makeup business for many years.  Now as a qualified Finance and Mortgage Broker I join my husband in his business of 15 years.

Simply studying….

At present I am also training to be a Prison Chaplain. I love to study God’s truth in the Bible – Give me the facts, show me the proof, let me examine the results.

Simply Hobbies….

I am always reading books on Psychology and Christian Theology . I Write book summaries. I compose poetry. I take and appreciate photography. I like to keep fit, but I am not a fitness freak. I love listening to my favourite music.

Simply Social…

Peter and I go on a date night every week to see a latest movie release. We enjoy dining out at our favourite Indian Restaurant and relaxing over a late night coffee and chai tea.
