4 Things You Can Do To Get The Job

It’s officially the season of graduation parties and cookouts. Who doesn’t like free food? For the grad, there are a lot of unknowns in the world and it doesn’t usually hit them until all the balloons deflate and the leftover pulled pork is scraped from the bottom of the pan.… READ THE REST

My Lesbian Neighbors

I live in a nice upper class community. The type of place where you can go for long walks and wave to Randy while he throws ribeyes on the barbie.

 

In my neighborhood is a lesbian couple. At least I assume them to be lesbians.… READ THE REST

How Could You?

How did I learn to forgive?

 

This question has been the bane of my existence for 3 years now. Every event I speak at, I get asked that question and I truly can’t answer it. I am very good at beating around the bush.… READ THE REST

You Won’t Find Happiness


My husband failed his entire first year of college. Straight F’s. Even in gym. He was grieving the loss of his older brother who should have been raging in that dorm life with him but was instead in a casket. Sometimes you can make plans for yourself, and then life throws a wrench in the tricycle you’ve been building.… READ THE REST

The Lucifer Effect

I am your token millennial. I was born in 1987, (you can check my driver’s license should you feel skeptical). I am young enough to use google as a verb, but old enough to have owned mix tapes. I refuse to shop at Walmart because of the labor conditions in their Asian factories, and yet I will admit I have no idea who my state representatives are.… READ THE REST

I’m Afraid

What are you most afraid of?

Stop Planning Your Life For A Second


I’m a planner. I like to know exactly what’s going to happen and the exact time the events will unfold. Once I decide I want something the wheels are set in motion and it’s off to the races. There will be hell to pay if you’re in my way and not on board with what I’ve decided is the right move.… READ THE REST

I Can’t Say No

My life is crazy. When people ask “how are you doing?” I used to respond with “busy” but I think busy is a common response; so I say “life is crazy.” Ask my husband, he will confirm it. For some reason I picked three careers that have to be the most inconsistent.… READ THE REST

You Are Not Pretty

I received a short message in my inbox last weekend and I can’t get it out of my head. The message read, “I wish I looked like you…”

 

I waited days to respond because I didn’t know how. What do you say to that?… READ THE REST

This is Why We Aren’t Pregnant

When everyone asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up it was an exciting question to explore. “The sky is the limit,” my teacher used to say. Well…. If that was the case I wanted to be a singer and “sing for Jesus.” Unfortunately Jesus didn’t give me the vocal cords so that didn’t happen.… READ THE REST
