We’re Back!

We are back! We had an awesome time in Italy, Greece, and Turkey! We had a few days in Rome and then took a 12 day cruise and visited many ancient empires and discovered many beautiful places and people. We visited cities that where once powerful and influential and now are only ruins, as well [...]

I Love You!

To all my LGBTQ friends... I love you! I love you for you. I love your strength and your resilience. I love your heart for authenticity. I am so sorry for the mistreatments, the discrimination, and the abuse over the years, and unfortunately we still have so much more to learn. I am sorry some [...]

Being a girl…

For many years to make a boy feel bad you would call him a girl, or you would say he is weak like a girl, runs like a girl, emotional like a girl, sensitive like a girl, or clueless like a girl. It’s as if to say that being a girl was not a good [...]

God will never try to control you, confine you or limit you. He will never force you to do anything you don’t want to do. He will never manipulate you into doing only what He wants. He will never enchain you with guilt or burden you with remorse and shame. He will never accuse you [...]

Don’t be Afraid…

Don’t be afraid to be all He created you to be. Don’t be afraid to make a difference in this world. Don’t be afraid to love the unlovable, the unworthy, the forgotten. Don’t be afraid to push the limits and step outside that man made box. Don’t be afraid to pursue your dreams and make [...]

Juneteenth

Yesterday I asked my oldest son if he knew what Juneteenth was because I wanted him to know, and to my surprise, he already knew what it meant... a day to celebrate freedom and the ending of slavery. He also said many people celebrate July 4th but don’t celebrate June 19th when they should and [...]

Grateful

Being grateful helps you be aware of what you have, who you are, and what is really important in life. It helps you realize the importance of embracing and enjoying each moment with those around you because time is uncertain and tomorrow is unknown. Make the most of your time and be intentional with your [...]

Not made to fit in

You are not made to fit in. Fitting in means you have to change who you are, adapt to your surroundings, and pretend you are like those around you. 💕 Fitting in requires you to ignore your uniqueness and mold yourself to conform to the standards of those you are trying to fit in with. [...]

You are someone special!

Don’t fall into the trap of believing you are just an average and regular Joe/Jane. 💕 Remember... You are not a nobody. You are not average. You are not ordinary. You are not like everybody else. You are not a lifeless body with nothing to give. You are not hopeless. You are not worthless. 💕 [...]
