Two things: 1) I'm working with a group of women to plan a workshop that we will deliver to other women in India. It's going to be phenomenal. It's building, it's brewing, it's developing right now, in each of our hearts and in our discussions. Last week, we discussed a crazy...

Big day in America, the Fourth of July. Fireworks, barbeques, beer, pie, ice cream, tank tops, family, sunburns, and love… lots and lots of love. Smiles so big your face hurts at the end of the day. Sticky fingers on little hands. Popsicles that melt too fast and stain your...

There are moments in life that will send you to your knees, reeling with disbelief, begging for divine intervention. There are moments that will deliver a gut punch so powerful and so precise, that you will struggle to breathe for the rest of your life. There are moments so unbearably cruel, so...

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....

I find myself on a plane quite often these days, which thrills my heart to no end. I’ve been making my escape ever since I was a little girl. Open door? I’m going through it. Open window? I’ll press myself up against the screen. I want out. I want to...

As of mid-August 2015, there have been 15 teenage suicide deaths in Clark County, Nevada. Fifteen! In ALL of 2014, there were fifteen teen suicides here. It is shocking to learn that we reached that number in 2015 before school had even started. This is just the county where the aMasongrace...

As other mothers sent their kiddos off to the first day of school today, I made my way to the place where my son died. I haven’t been there since Mason took his own life. I couldn’t go, couldn’t be there, couldn’t see where our lives ended. Until today. My friend’s...

Sometimes we find ourselves in a tough moment. Maybe we created it; maybe it was imposed upon us. Either way, it’s a bad one. We all have bad moments. Sad moments. Scary moments. Sometimes we land in a good moment. A great moment. A lovely one, a happy one. Moments. Our...
