My daughter was incredibly excited about graduating from elementary school. A budding artist, she even drew a portrait of herself and her friends with the words "We're middle schoolers now!" above it in bold print. But the beginning of the year was a disaster.
The bus route confused her. The school pace was intimidating. And then, in gym, she hesitated before passing a sheet of paper to her partner. "Give it to me, you retard," the girl said. My daughter looked back to see…Continue

Watching three girls go from womb to now, I have had the privilege of learning/realizing that yes indeed, some things do just come to us girls naturally. It's like a code of honor that Mother Nature plants in
their heads while they're being created. Here are a few that I find

I am so inspired by my daughters desire, and actual action, of playing Volleyball this year. I've spent so many years on the sidelines, wishing that I had the nerve to get out there and play. Most of my life I've had severe anxiety and couldn't make myself take that first step. But, if I had the nerve, I would have loved to be a…Continue

The Boy is about to turn 12. I’m baffled as to how that happened. I can’t possibly be old enough to have a 12 year old. Of course, a birthday means a birthday party.

Certainly that was HIS plan. However, being the…Continue

Back when I was a teenager (in prehistoric times), girls did not have nearly the pressures they have today. Without cell phones and the Internet, there was no need to be constantly on, so there was more time

had problems, and there were very few resources…
