Preach It! (or, who IS this guy?)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve no doubt heard that there was a very high profile wedding not too long ago. And by high profile, I don’t mean that the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle held any significance for most folks – just that it got a lot of publicity.

Love With Conviction (or, what can we learn from terrorists?)

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.

What’s In Your Head? (or, the zombie apocalypse is here!)

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

The Fear of Risk-Taking (or, mediocrity is bad?)

“The most powerful threat to greatness isn't evil. It's mediocrity.” Mediocre: Of only ordinary or moderate quality; neither good nor bad; barely adequate (dictionary.com). There seems to be a trend towards mediocrity these days. We see it in education, sports, business, and politics. We even succumb to the status quo in our personal lives.

Healing Outside the Box (or, how many pushups can YOU do?)

Have you ever noticed that God has a sense of humor? When She endowed me with a rebellious streak, She probably thought it would be comical to watch the many predicaments I would get myself into. For example, I dropped out of college after my sophomore year and joined the Army….as an MP, no

Happy Anniversary! (or, what does a stovetop have to do with blogging?)

When I started blogging, my goal was one post a week for one year – 52 blog posts. At the time, that sounded like a lot! Fifty-two essays…how would I find that many things to write about? What if I came up empty…lost my source of inspiration? Needless to say, that didn’t happen. I

Can Mindfulness Save Us? (or, my tribe is better than yours)

As I mentioned in a previous post, I started an 8-week mindfulness meditation program on New Year’s Day. You could say that mindfulness has been on my mind lately. One of the major benefits of a mindfulness practice is that it helps us understand that we are not our thoughts. Don’t get me wrong…thinking

The Guest Post That Wasn’t (or, 3 books and 3 blogs)

The following blog post was written as a potential guest post for a fellow blogger, Lorna, over at Gin & Lemonade. She had a segment called “3 books and 3 blogs,” that highlighted, well, books and blogs – guest bloggers could share some of their favorites. As it turns out, I submitted my post

College in the 21st Century (or, is it too late to change my major?)

“College is where liberal professors teach ‘ridiculous’ classes and indoctrinate students who hang out and protest all day long and cry on our dime. They’ve become elitist, politically correct institutions that often fail to provide practical skills for the job market” (Washington Post, 2017). Wow! That’s quite an indictment of American colleges and universities.
