Don’t Worry, Be Happy…Yeah, RIGHT.

Unfortunately, “Where’s MY happy ending?” is a question too women are asking these days. And it starts really young. I met with a 17 year old girl recently who told me she found the question, “What is love?” really confusing. “Disney’s told me one thing, the church has told me another, and I have no […]

Got Help?

There were three periods in my life where I prayed consistently for patience for several weeks at a time. I don’t know about you, but I can be a little slow in learning. It took me nearly six years to figure out that every time I prayed for patience, I got pregnant. I stopped asking. […]
