Ripples of Grace – A New Perspective on the Mommy Wars

The internet has been all a flutter recently over the arrival of the new royal baby. You would be hard pressed to visit any news website or social media outlet and not see something about the big news.

The Woman on the Corner

I see her sitting there everyday. Rain, shine, snow, wind, she’s there. Her skin is dark, weathered, worn. Wisps of black-grey hair peek out from underneath her near thread-bare scarf, her long skirts gathered around her legs as she sits criss cross on the sidewalk under the tree. That big tree that leafs large in… Continue reading The Woman on the Corner

And Even if He Doesn’t…

I stand at the sink, sleeves rolled, heart heavy.

Most of the things you all had to say were along the lines of “I’ve been thinking/feeling the exact same things!” “I really… Continue reading What If….We Really Did It?

What If…

If you’ve spent any time here poking around through past posts, you’ve likely seen me write about faith, joy, depression, community, fear and how going it alone not only stinks, it’s not the way things were meant to be. (side note: I really, really wanted to put a comma after “fear”, but I’m told we… Continue reading What If…
