If a man is poisoned and dying in a restaurant, he won’t sit quietly in the corner of the room. He won’t modestly put his head down while the poison overtakes and kills him. He’ll sputter and froth at the mouth and clutch the arm of the person closest to...

This morning, a friend wrote a very vulnerable, broken post on Facebook. She has recently been diagnosed with cancer and every doctor’s appointment reveals more and more terrifying news. She has the bravest faces I’ve ever seen. She has one for every day, one for every outfit, one for every...

This one is for the girls. It’s not long and every single young woman needs to read this. Maybe even some not-so-young women need to read this. Much of our lives, our worth is directly tied to our looks. Our body image feeds our self esteem. Our sweet, sensitive hearts are...
