Confessions Of A Grown Woman

I have a confession to make. It is severely humbling to admit. It is terrifying to permanently pen to paper. It is one of the most exposing bit of information I have ever shared about myself here. I craved validation. As much as I was stubborn, I sought a stamp of approval. I yearned for …

Self-care

Self-care can not be defined or described with just one aspect as I formerly thought. I thought adequate self-care for me was to get out once or twice a month with my husband or girlfriends.

The Priesthood: Modern Day Levite

Years ago, a friend of ours, stopped us on our way out of the church parking lot.  We were previously discussing my husband's increasing role at our place of worship. I said something like "I am a slouch because I don't do much of anything compared to him." It was then, our friend said, "I …
