Slowing Down in a Speed Up World

“Time. It goes by so fast. SO FAST.” I distinctly remember these words that my Grandma Ruby spoke often throughout my childhood and even early adulthood. Looking upon her head of snow-white hair, I always thought that she looked not only prestigious, but wise. After...

When You Feel Like You HAVE To

“Do you think it’s okay that I feel like I HAVE to do this, not that I WANT to do this?” A friend asked me this recently, and I thought it was a great question to reflect upon. If we’re being honest with ourselves and others, I think we’ve all been there, or maybe...

Extending Grace…To Yourself

A funny thing happened when I turned 41. It’s probably not what you think…. I started to take naps when I’m on the road (or skies). Sometimes, I even take one every once in awhile at home. Eeeekkkk. Anyone who knows me well knows that’s something I NEVER used to do....

Readjusting Your Normal

I’m just readjusting my normal. Life happens. Unexpected things occur, circumstances continuously change. Our children grow, we age, we lose people we love, we leave places where we had laid down roots. The list of how life happens and seemingly at breakneck speed,...

Victim to Victor

We hear a lot about victims in our society. Yes, there are victims of horrible circumstances and experiences, including sexual assault, domestic violence, childhood abuse and neglect, just to name a few. We also often describe the children who are aborted as victims...

Mercy and My Abortionist

Dr. Kelberg. The abortionist who should have taken my life. Hardly a day has gone by in the last two decades that I haven’t thought about him. Wondered about him. What led him to become an abortionist? How did he feel about his dual career as both an abortionist and...

Speaking Life

Have you ever read or used a quote, perceiving it to have one meaning, but over time, experienced its meaning change? I realized this recently when I looked at this picture: Speak Life. I’ve used the term frequently over the years. And I’ve meant what I’ve said when...

An even greater appreciation for Mother’s Day

Originally published at National Right to Life News and Views on May 6, 2020. The celebration of Mother’s Day is rife with heart-warming tributes to the women who make our world go around—the mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and mother figures who sacrificially pour into...

That’s Okay!

There’s a handful of phrases you will hear frequently at our house. “I love you,” of course, is one of them. “Lexi, off,” is another, thanks to our rather energetic dog. “I got it,” is another, compliments of the stage of development our five-year-old is in, which has...
