With writing deadlines, exciting work on book proposal #2, and the two weeks worth of Spanish classwork "we" forgot to do and need help with, this space has been seriously lacking. My apologies. I will be re-posting some old favorites for you until the routine here cha...

Ladies, whether we realize it or not, we are facing a battle every day.

We face battles in our homes, in our relationships, and in our cluttered hearts and distracted minds. We want a Pint...

I will be joining a panel of women in a much needed conversation about anxiety.

Are you familiar with anxiety?

Italic calligraphy might not sound like a tactic of the enemy, but trust me it is.

I have attempted to post an Easter message, exciting announcement, and a re-post about Magdalene...but when I hit publish, the font freaks out and morphs itself into italic calligraphy. D...
