Little girl screaming outdoors on clear winter day

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of being cold.  I’m sitting here in my office with a space heater, a heated throw blanket on my legs, and a regular throw blanket around my shoulders.  I get cold, and I stay cold, easily, and I DON’T LIKE IT!  Thankfully, I’m not alone and in…

It’s only the second month of 2018 and most of us are still probably getting into our groove after the start of a new year. I’m sure I am not alone in trying to stick with New Year’s resolutions, by regularly giving thought to what I can do to make myself and my life better….

CHANGE: The Ebb and Flow of Life

C-H-A-N-G-E.  Why does that word cause dread in many of us?  Is it because it implies: a new situation, another decision to be made, a detour, rerouting, recalibration, etc.?  Should we really perceive change with such consternation?

Underneath the shocking stories of harassment emerging nearly daily, we read of patriarchy’s more devastating effects – sky-rocketing rates of maternal and infant mortality that place Texas on a par with Africa. How can that be happening in 21st century America? Haven’t we put all that behind…

Change – What’s the Point?

Our lives transition at regular intervals. In the same way rearranging the furniture transforms the room, learning to embrace change and transitions can usher in beautiful transformation. Birthdays, New Year’s Day, the first day of school, earning a driver’s license are moments we celebrate transitions — transitions that are bringing much needed transformation. When my…

A Change is Gonna Come

In light of last month’s celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the explosive comments spoken recently by another leader, the word “change” is weighing heavy on me today. I am old enough to remember the times of Dr. King and the change he dreamed of bringing to people of color…

Speak Life

There is so much power in what we say that we often change the course of our lives without even knowing it. “I don’t see myself ever getting there” or “If I just looked like…” or “I can’t because I am a woman” are common phrases that are not only negative but prophetic. We must…
