In a recent interview with People magazine, Oprah discussed why she never had children. She discussed the “depth of responsibility” that it would take to be a mom. She also talked about the people she spent her time interviewing...
“How you doing?” “Ugh. Busy, but ok!” Six months ago, this was how nearly every conversation would begin for me. As a teacher, wife, and mom with a 2-going-on-13-year-old and newborn with colic, my life was anything but relaxed. I had...

February is American Heart Month and mamas, we are looking at you! Did you know heart disease claims the lives of women more than all cancers combined? Frightening statistic, isn't it? We sat down with Dr. Lori Deemer from...

Would you consider being a Wish Granter? Meet Kayden. He is my son and a Make-A-Wish child for intractable epilepsy.  No, he is not dying. (Read more about our family's story here.) Yes, I use to think that Make-A-Wish was for terminally...
  For the first time since turning 21 (aside from pregnancy), I went 25 days without drinking alcohol. Does that sound shocking to you? Or, does it feel pretty normal? The CDC says that women should have no more than 1...
For nearly a decade of my life, I had the honor of working as a pediatric transplant nurse. I cared for infants born with anatomical abnormalities that caused their tiny livers to fail. I held hands with terrified parents...
  Teens. Tough to crack. Tough to talk to, and they certainly aren’t wanting to spill their personal lives to parents, teachers, or mentors. If they are fortunate to have real, well-meaning, caring friends, they are luckier than most these...
I never thought that I would actually binge-watch Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. I was having one of those moments where I needed some mindless activity. When the television comes on in my house, my children’s eyes are glued to it...
