Best-selling author Marianne Williamson came to Charleston recently as part of her Love America tour, and I had the opportunity to attend her Friday night talk. What a firecracker! She is an amazing woman, chock full of spunk! Although there were lots of great nuggets peppered throughout her presentation, one thing really hit home. She was describing the state…

I’m probably in the minority, but I’ve never watched an episode of The Walking Dead. In fact, I never really bought into the whole Zombie apocalypse thing. But, after listening to the Bad Wolves’ cover of Zombie (originally recorded by the Cranberries), I’m having second thoughts. I think we might actually be in the middle of The Zombie Apocalypse…I…

I met Dr. Allison Brown at a grand opening party of a local community center.  When I learned that she was looking for Reiki volunteers for a program called Reiki for Vets, I quickly signed on.  I now share this amazing healing experience with others, including disabled military veterans and their families in the Charleston, SC area. For those…

Corey’s beliefs fall, in his words, primarily within the tenets of the Anabaptist network. One of their core beliefs is that the western Christendom era…

In my last blog post, I let you in on a little secret. I admitted that I am often afraid. Wait, what? Yes, I realize that my tagline is “Living Your Life’s Purpose Through Love, Not Fear.” But, actually, I’m on this journey right along with you. My goal is to live my tagline – every day. And, no,…

If you’ve been following my blog, you may have noticed a bit of a theme. Two weeks ago, I wrote about my penchant for asking “why” and how this sometimes leads me to (respectfully) challenge authority – or at least the status quo.
