2018-12-08T09:28:12+00:00December 8th, 2018|It is well with my soul.|

A friend recently suggested a book title I might be interested in. I love to read. I read one if not two books a week; reading is a staple in my day. The content of what I read varies; for awhile I read almost exclusively books regarding early childhood, an area that is important to [...]

Waiting On Why

A good percentage of this week’s media coverage has been on Kavanaugh’s character. Rightly, so. The Supreme Court is a lifelong appointment. The Me Too Movement has created a space for those who have experienced unwanted advances or sexual assault to come forward; to feel less alone. I will admit that when I turned on [...]
