#ManEnough #redefinemasculinity

Last post, I spoke about “boys will be boys” and our need to change the culture of men. Interestingly enough, I have had women come out of the woodwork, needing sessions because watching news on Harvey Weinstein and constantly hearing #metoo stories have triggered them back into PTSD. I could write forever on this topic, […]

Boys Will Be Boys

When my son was younger and even now that he is a teenager, I would often times ask my husband why the heck my son was doing whatever it was he was doing. I simply didn’t understand – why is he eating like a neanderthal? Why is he constantly joking about bodily functions as he […]

Do Not Judge Me Based on Who I Vote For

It would be an understatement to say that people’s convictions, thoughts, and feelings are intensely passionate regarding this upcoming election. Now that both National Conventions have aired, it is safe to say that people are more opinionated than ever. My blog has never been a platform for political accountability and I do not plan on […]

In a World of Darkness, Let Us Show Each Other Hope.

With all that is occuring in our world today, it is easy to be passionately opinionated, convictedly judgemental, and overall, uncompassionate due to fears and anxiety or where our world may venture to as our children grow older in a world of darkness and despair. As we try to commemorate a day dedicated to Martin […]

Why Do People Do Bad Things?

I was having a crap day. I was feeling sad, angry, and disappointed. I was feeling frustrated that people couldn’t care enough about others to make them feel safe, protected, and mostly loved. And then……I come home to the news of what occured in Paris. As my emotions began to rise, I could not help […]

Our Obsession with Celebrity Addicts

Tatum O’Neal. Ozzy Osbourne. Richard Pryor. Charlie Sheen. The list could continue to occupy my entire blog post. There is a celebrity addict who struggles every day… This is […]

I Challenge You to Speak Up to Your Religious Community or Church!

Thank you to all my readers who read last week’s post and for all those who emailed me and contacted me with positive words of affirmations. I can only hope when I write posts that garner deep feelings of conflict, that we always find the humanity in situations to respect and love others, despite the […]

Enough is Enough

Let’s be clear. I am Christian. And, a practicing Christian at that. I attend church weekly, and when possible, even daily. I pray everyday. All day. I believe in the Bible and teach my children the theology I believe. I follow the Ten Commandments to the best of my ability. Most of my library contains […]

If We Focused on Modesty in the Fashion World, Where Would the Self-Respecting Women Go?

Let me start off by admitting that yes, I love fashion. I love clothes. I remember at a young age being conscientious of what I wore and how exactly I presented myself. I take pride in being well-dressed. You will rarely see me leave my home in sweats, despite being a mother of four and […]
