Can we please stop asking why? It's such a powerful word but only if the answer can be trusted. Any news story today is crafted to fit into a targeted audience. If you don't agree with the story then you'll find someone you trust. I listen to Rush Limbaugh and Chris Cuomo. Why? I love their completely opposite and points of view. I love talking with preachers and atheists. Two completely different walks of life....

I’m not one to air my dirty laundry. Yet I find the methods of madness that we’re all wading through during this season of 2020 to be nearly next to being scrap metal. Not a Debbie Downer! Over the past six to seven months, during these days of safe distance and working from home we’ve forgotten how to properly communicate. To play nice. Not be a Know It All or a chaser of keeping up with the Jones’. No day ...

Teressa’s sergeant father brings his military life to their already unstable home, meeting each of his daughters’ infractions with extreme punishment while their mother remains unsupportive and silent. Aided only by the solace of books, music, and a few kind figures, Teressa finds an eventua...

Those songs! The tunes we hear while dreaming. They play so vibrantly without skipping like an old fashioned CD. Those songs are endlessly playing and all we’re trying to do is get some sleep. I’m shocked that the music industry hasn’t figured out a way to monetize this connection we have with their beats and lyrics. I’m not talking about streaming on your smart phone or chumming up with your old iPod. Nope....

I've become the type of person that doesn't want to celebrate a good thing. It's the fear of potential negatives. It keeps your gifts and skills from being crafted into the success story you've dedicated your life to. Gaining courage is what you find in self help books. Activating courage means becoming the path maker. Allow the silent steps to be fuel for the imagination. Know you are endlessly touching other...

I love being a daily writer. I get to put anything on paper without feeling the pressure of being judged until the thoughts are set free. Kids aren’t the only ones saying the darndest things. If we took more time to listen to those around us we’d be totally entertained and inspired. I laugh incredibly loud when standing inside circles of free form thinkers who aren’t afraid of failing with their words. It remi...

A new study released reports that married couples aren't as close as they used to be. The pressure of working from home, children doing classwork and the daily pressure of everything that feels really bad. The divorce rate is up especially with newlyweds. The thought of there being intimacy is the furthest thing on our minds. How will it reshape what we assume is a human need? Are married couples building new walls? Maybe...
