    I’ve found myself a little quieter recently. Not just wanting to write for writing’s sake but to have something to say when I do. Something meaningful to me and to you. It’s not as if I haven’t ceased being busy. The kids are still home even if it has just turned Summer. At least I […]

    For two years, in both the Spring and Fall, I’ve hosted this Soul Selfie Challenge.

    This week I’m in the midst of hosting my fourth Soul Selfie Challenge meant to spur and spark people to dig a little deeper and do some self-inquiry on what they believe about themselves or their lives or life in general.
