I had a life changing moment recently. I've written a book been featured on major news outlets like the Business Insider, Wall Street Journal and more. I've been very blessed. I coach an amazing group of women who want to make money with their blog and they are writing books and doing great.
But in spite of all those accomplishments nothing filled my heart as much as the though of helping this young boy. I was a volunteer recently at an event and this was my experience.

I leave the room and sit in the lobby for them to finish my paperwork. While I’m waiting, I send Jason a text saying, “I just wanted to let you know that I’m at Planned Parenthood. They confirm that I am pregnant and due in November.”

Stunned by this reply, I’m at a loss for how to respond. How does he not know what to say to me? Last I knew, it takes two for this result to happen.
He sends a follow-up…Continue

For Thanksgiving, we go to my husband’s parents house each year. I haven’t had to cook a turkey in a long time, which I kinda miss because my turkey always came out very moist and juicy. In fact, many years ago I would cook the turkey on the BBQ grill (charcoal). I loved cooking on the BBQ grill because that meant that I had more room in my oven for cooking the side dishes. However, you can still make my awesome turkey in the oven. For the recipe for a moist and juicy turkey learn…Continue
