Book Review: Free of Me

I was truly excited and honor to be a part of the Free of Me launch team. Sharon Hodde Miller is such a gifted writer, and her blog has truly encouraged, challenged, and uplifted me over the past year. I had the expectations that her book would be just as good (if not better), and … Continue reading Book Review: Free of Me


No Man’s Land

When you're less than 5 miles from the White House, you can't help but get patriotic over here. There are lots of reasons I'm not proud of our country right now, but when I see stories of Americans being captured in other countries and the legal processes in those places (or lack thereof), I am … Continue reading No Man’s Land

I've been waiting for this particular superhero movie … Continue reading If We Could All Be Wonderful

I feel rich that my heart gets to beat slow and breathe deep as I … Continue reading Perspective is My Friend

Verse by verse he paints the dark and torrid picture of the state of Israel. The people were so wise in doing what was wrong, they didn't even know how … Continue reading Grief within Solidarity

No Mother is an Island

When I think about celebrating Mother's Day this weekend, I cringe at thinking it'll be all about me. I know that I really couldn't survive as a mother without the village that has surrounded me, and the new people that are gently supporting me in a new environment. About 5 months ago, my husband, son, and … Continue reading No Mother is an Island
