What Do We Do?

May I state the obvious? I am not black. Quite the opposite. I am white, but may I state something that isn’t quite so obvious? That isn’t stopping me from being in tears after reading about Alton Sterling and Philando Castile –  two black men with loving families, who were brutally killed by police officers this week.  …

Live in the Light

Say the word house to yourself. Now say the word home. The words feel different, don’t they? A house is a roof over your head, but a home is so much more. To me, home is a very special word. It indicates a place of belonging, a place of love, a place of safety, a…

Who will live within your walls?

To all the women out there who have chosen not to have children, I am writing to you as a wife and a mother. You may expect me to judge you, and to tell you what you have probably heard many times – that you are selfish or must not value family. It may be…
