Suit Up...It's Summertime!

What is the deal with women and bathing suits?  (That was a rhetorical question.)  Why are we SO embarrassed to be seen in one in front of our friends?  Guys could not care less and are the first ones in the pool after the kids jump in.  Yet we sit in the heat, covered, knowing our swim suit will never see the light of day,…

WTH, ABC Family??!!

My kids have always LOVED commercials.  Maybe it's because their dad works in advertising, or maybe it's because, unlike me, they never ever get tired of hearing the "Flipeez" theme song that seems to play on repeat between shows.  Whatever the case, when an ad pops up on the screen, my twins are completely riveted.  So when a totally inappropriate commercial was shown during a KID movie on…

Who HE Sees - A Sunday Thought

Life can be a bit discouraging! It is hard. It is rough. We ALL have bad days that sometimes turn into bad weeks, bad months and even bad years.

This week I ran into several different people, all going through completely different trials, but all struggling with one thing exactly the same – their self worth. A young friend struggling with the overwhelming amout of homework she had to get done, a young mom trying to find balance between her job and children, a wife going through a…

No Filter

We all know that kids really don't have any kind of a filter when it comes to speaking their minds.  The thoughts just tumble out of their mouths like the trash rolls out of my purse when it falls over.  They don't mean to hurt your feelings -- they just call it like they see it.  For example, when they say I have a…

How Media Can Have an Effect on Your Teen’s Body Image

Society plays a huge role on how people perceive themselves, especially in terms of physical appearance. Men are judged heavily if they are not tall and muscular enough. Women are perceived ugly if they don’t have a buxom or ultra-thin model body. It is a sad reality because the media plays a huge role on how society perceives the ideal body image.

No Justice When It Comes to Tween Body Image

No Justice When It Comes to Tween Body Image

Like most 10-year-old girls, my daughter loves to shop at Justice. So I was flipping through the latest Justice catalog that came in the mail, and I noticed a disturbing trend. Before I point out the obvious, see if you can see what's wrong with the following…

What Celebs Have Taught Me About a Size 6

I'm a rag mag reader. Yep, I am. I picked up one today that caught my attention because it had Kelly Clarkson and Khloe Kardashian on the front, and supposedly their weight loss secrets were on the inside.



I was curious. Don't judge me.



I read that Khloe Kardashian is claiming to be a size 6. Okay, that number seems to be very popular with celebrities when they lose weight. They all end up at a size 6, don't they? Seems to ring bells all over the place, doesn't it?…

Mirror Mirror: Keys To Gaining Self Confidence

As women, we can be really hard on ourselves and each other. I know every time I go out in public, I get more stares from women than men. Not necessarily because they're trying to hit on me or anything like that, but because women can be so such critics of other women and how they look.

"Girl, what she got on," "Honey she think she cute," "She think she…

Hey Society – Get Your Opinions Off My Body

Did you see this article? I saw it late last night and LOVED it. Even posted it to my Facebook page. In the spread, size 12 model Katya Zharkova poses nude next to a “straight size” model to show the differences between them.

I loved it… thought it was a beautiful spread, truer words were…

Man Up?

The identity of the American man, has it changed over time? I think it has. My grandfather talked about his duty to his family with his military work in Alaska and working on the railroad. His identity as a man was how hard he worked with his hands and how much he provided for his family. Today its a bit hazy. Is the identity of a man the CEO of a multimillion dollar company? Or is it the guy pushing his child down the street in a stroller while his wife is…

Measure Me, If You Must

Measure Me . . .

Not by the dimensions of my waist.
Not by the cup of my bra.
Not by the width of my behind.
Not by my age.
Not by the color of my skin.
Not by the unruliness of my hair.

Measure Me . . .

I Promise Not To Say The F Word

 There are a few things in life that get me heated instantly, and our society’s misogynistic view of what woman should look like is one of them. I hate to think that my daughters are growing up in a society with such distorted views of what a woman’s figure is. We come in different shapes, sizes and colors and that’s beautiful. I don’t want my daughters to think that the plastic they…

Padded Bras and Breast Obsession

Do you hate it when men look at your breasts when they first meet you, rather than your eyes or your smile? My newest blog post is just about that -- how female breasts went from being revered maternal objects of survival to sexualized and caricatured versions of femininity.


Check it out...leave your mark, and I will follow you right back on twitter, on FB, on blogs! MomBlogger's Honor!

THIS IS MY BATTLEFIELD. MAYBE IT'S YOURS.

I had been losing this battle since I was 8. The battle's location? My mind. The battle's name? Heather against Herself (i.e., poor self esteem, low self image). I finally got ticked & sick of being defenseless on this battlefield--and worse--losing. So I sought God on how I could be a better warrior when this battle flares. And with endless love… Continue
