helping our young adults live in fullness

This morning another full moon filled our skies— at 1 am MST to be precise. Some of the full moons in 2024 are named Wolf Moon, Hunter's Moon, and Cold Moon... but this one is named Worm Moon... not exactly an inspiring name, if you ask me, but perfect for the topic...

It’s hard to miss the controversy surrounding the Oscar nominations this year in regard to the movie, Barbie. Or should I say lack of nominations for lead actress Margo Robbie and director Greta Gerwig. Like many others, I was pissed when I heard the news. How is it...

he’s just not that into u

Most of us have heard of the book He's Just Not That Into You, and to this day, I can hear Oprah talking about it on her show. Sometimes there comes a time in your relationship where you take stock of it... why you're hurt, why you're upset, and you realize he or she...

I was married almost fifteen years when I met the man I left the marriage for, and pursuing a new relationship with this man began in the midst of swirling turmoil. Add my two kids to the mix and now we’re talking compounded angst, failed expectations, and...
