My sophomore year of high school I made the decision to join the track team.  My depression was starting to consume me and some of my teachers had started expressing concern over how withdrawn I seemed.  I'll never forget the day one of my teachers asked me to stay for a few minutes after class.  "I'm worried about you.  Is everything okay at home?" she asked.  "Somethings's going on with you like you're always sad."

20 Life Lessons Proverbs Taught Me

When it comes to life lessons and wisdom, Proverbs is like the ultimate roadmap.  It's filled with so many life lessons to help us tackle some of life's everyday challenges and to help build great character.   King Soloman prayed to God for wisdom and God granted his request.  Soloman then compiled some of that wisdom into the book that is Proverbs.

Summer Break is finally here!!  I wanted to make a special dessert/snack to help us celebrate the end of another successful school year.  When I was a kid my mom used to let us pop our own popcorn as a treat for special moments like getting a good grade on a test or family movie night.  So it's only seemed fitting that I introduce this tradition to my kids.  Of course, we put our own twist on it by ditching the canola oil for Malaysian Red Palm Oil and kicked things up a notch by turning our popcorn into tropical fruit popcorn bars.

"It is not light that we need, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder.  We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake." -Frederick Douglass


Sometimes we're forced into darkness not to find light but find fuel for our inner fire.  My light went out about two months ago when I woke and found on my inner right breast.  At first, I wasn't overly concerned about it.  I thought it might have been more a bump caused by the bra had worn and accidentally fell asleep in.  I did start to worry when said lump doubled in size and started to be very painful and tender to the touch.

The first day of summer might still be a month away, but down here in the Carolinas, things have already started to heat up.   We have officially crossed over into the 90 degrees and above territory.  If you're already looking for something to help you beat the heat, you're in luck today.  I'm sharing a recipe for one of the most delicious and easiest ice-cold milkshakes to make using Once Again Nut Butter's hazelnut spread.

There are few things that I love more than experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen.  Sometimes the recipes work out, sometimes they don't.  Thankfully, it worked it out this time around.  I kept this recipe super simple using only three ingredients - chicken breasts, cheddar flavored Cheese Duck Crackers from Brandless and an egg.

How To Create Beautiful Custom Graduation Cards

Spring is here!  This means that graduation season is officially upon us.  Parents, I'm sure talks of graduation announcements, party invitations, and thank you cards have already started at the dinner table.


Graduation stationery was a huge deal when I was high school and is an even bigger deal today.  I remember wanting to have customized photo graduation cards for my graduation announcements and customized graduation thank you cards for my high school graduation.  The only problem was that it was too expensive to hire a graphic designer to design the announcements and matching thank you cards I really wanted.
