The sad truth is that we are losing our kids, friends. Losing them. We will never, ever get them back. We must stop this now, today. We must start the conversation in our homes, our schools, our youth groups. We must look our kids in the eyes and see them...

For all the kiddos heading back to school, this post is for you. Feel those butterflies in your stomach? Use them. Those butterflies are energy just waiting to be applied. You can put them to good work today as you brave the ‘first day’ back to school. New teachers. New...

I heard an amazing song by Alanis Morissette today and was so struck by the lyrics that I immediately downloaded it and played it on repeat for the next hour. I love to dissect the lyrics to really hear what the artist is communicating in the song. Music can express...

On a day dedicated to celebrating love, I wanted to throw my heart into the mix and write a love letter. It’s no secret my love affair with construction paper hearts and glitter. It’s well known my affinity for chocolate and wine and kisses. This year, I’m embracing something new....
