Soul

The other night, my very precocious 6 year old rolled over and said ... "Mommy, where is Great Grandma?" My grandmother died over the summer in 2018 and we've talked a little about death since then. So, I reminded him that we'd talked about Great Grandma being in heaven. We talked a little about who … Continue reading Soul

Book Review: Waking up the Karma Fairy: Life Lessons and Holy Adventures

Have you ever read a book and thought, that author and I just get one another; if only we could meet in real life, we'd be besties. Yet, the people who act on such a thought are usually considered stalkers, so you just keep this thought in a special part of your brain that doesn't … Continue reading Book Review: Waking up the Karma Fairy: Life Lessons and Holy Adventures

It’s Not About You

What a great title!! The author, Tom Rath, has also been involved with writing about Strength Finders, which was a great asset to me and my law firm when I was practicing. Beyond personality, Strength Finders focuses on those traits that serve you personally well in the workplace. Super helpful, especially in a work place … Continue reading It’s Not About You

Book Review: The Vagina Bible

"Power and health are inseparably linked." Dr Jennifer Gunter didn't say the above quote until the end of the book, but it sums up all of the nitty gritty details she reviews, debunks and explains in exquisite detail.

The author talks about the mainstream menopause authors and how each falls prey to the traditionally male conclusion that aging women must take hormone replacement therapy … Continue reading Book Review: Flash Count Diary; Menopause and the Vindication of Natural Life

Book Review: And it was Beautiful

I recently discovered the books written by Kara Tippetts, a metster like me, who passed away in March of 2015. Like many of us, she began blogging while writing one of her other books (there are three) and her last book, "And it was Beautiful", is a compilation of her blog posts while going through … Continue reading Book Review: And it was Beautiful

Book Review: The Cure for Sorrow

I recently discovered Jan Richardson and her blessings resonate with so many things, but this book especially has touched me in the midst of the treatment I'm enduring for stage IV metastatic breast cancer. She wrote this particular book in the middle of and as she lived her life in the aftermath of her husband's … Continue reading Book Review: The Cure for Sorrow

Book Review: Breakthrough

My dear friend, Emily Garnett, had the author of Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer, Charles Graeber, on her podcast earlier this year and if you aren't already listening to her podcast, The Intersection of Cancer and Life, you should start immediately. 😉. It's available through the podcast application on my iPhone and … Continue reading Book Review: Breakthrough
