How To Be Fearless in a Frightening World

I have a love-hate relationship with the news. I like to be informed about what’s happening in my community and throughout the world, but with the need-to-know information comes everything else.

I Am You

I see you. The couple going through an infertility battle. Leaving the clinic while my loud, sweet baby waits with me in plain sight in the middle of the lobby. I see her tensed face move into a wide, joyous smile, even if it’s painful to do so; surely it was full of tears a […]
