Thankful for Autism

November 29, 2016 | 0 Comments

I’m thankful for Autism, because it makes the best teachers. Autism has been stigmatized by so many, as being something wrong, dis-abled and dis-ordered.

November 22, 2016 | 0 Comments

How can you use your strengths to serve those in need? Here is a way that I did it and why I did it. I was finding that many entrepreneurs and small business owners in my city were  unaware of how to use blogging to expand their business. My generation did not have computers in...

I have a confession. I purposefully keep my girls from getting involved in the American Girl craze. There are several reasons I could offer to explain myself, but I won’t make excuses.

Make This Your Year to Leap Forward

October 24, 2016 | 0 Comments

Happy Monday beautiful people! I had a conversation with a friend the other day and she was saying how this leap year (and apparently most leap years) is full of births and deaths.

Is It Time for a Mental Health Makeover?

I lived two different lives in high school. My public life consisted of excelling in AP classes, serving as student government president for three years, and...
