12 Things I Learned in My First 12 Months of Motherhood

It's been 12 months since my life changed forever... But I still remember the day like it was yesterday. After seventeen hours of labor with one final push I felt a release as my daughter came into the world. They handed her to me and with shaky hands I kissed her all over her little body. She was my sun, my moon, my stars and I felt a new kind of love spark in my…

[VIDEO] What Stories Are You Holding Onto?

https://youtu.be/69ZSOA9fn6c Today on my YouTube channel I talk about our stories and how we can re-write the stories of our lives.  Think about the stories that you are living in right now - the story of your childhood, the story from the past, or the story of the fear, or the story that is holding you back? Are you allowing those stories to define you? Did you know that you can redefine your life? Did…

4 Lessons I Learned From Oprah’s Life You Want Weekend

October was a rough month. I broke electronics, my car got hit in the parking lot, and when my laptop was stolen- my words, words that I had spent countless hours perfecting, a book that I was in the middle of writing, poems that had poured from my heart- were gone in an instant. It was like losing someone. Losing a part of me. Slumped into a mini-depression, I tried to tell myself it had…

How am I going to be an Optimist about this?

I have a problem. I am an eternal optimist. Many would say that's not exactly a problem, but it is when you are trying the wrestle with the problems that plague our Earth.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

I am losing my hair. I kid you not. Once upon a time I had so much hair I did not know what to do with it. My mother would chase me around the house with a comb and I would scream, "No." Finally, she would wrestle me down and comb through knot after knot of glorious, big, bouncy, black curls. It's ironic really as I was born with not a single hair on my…

Why I Don’t Believe in Perfection

My math teacher in middle school said if you can draw a perfect circle free-handed, you might be a little crazy. That's when he busted out the compass and showed us this nifty tool you can use to draw a perfect circle. I could never draw a circle anywhere close to perfect. I also colored, but never perfectly in the lines. In art class, my art teacher always admired by ability to paint abstract art,…

On Parting the Red Sea

Today I was speaking to my father on the telephone and we were having a conversation about God. Over the past few weeks, I have had a strong spiritual calling that I can't explain. Every time I try to turn to writing or my blog to explain the phenomena that have surrounded me, and the feelings that I have felt, it is like my heart is too full and the words just don't form. I'm…

An Ode to Thanks-Giving

Many of the poorest people I know are actually the happiest. Their days may be filled with strife of how to put a warm meal on the table, but once they settle down for dinner, they always give thanks. They know the value of that meal and the value of their family. That's because money doesn't feed the soul. This Thanksgiving, I have been thinking very much about the soul and how it should be…
