I while ago I blogged about what my “memorial bench” would say if I cut through my crap and just followed my bliss. I had been hiking with my husband and saw several memorial benches, which inspired a long talk about how we would be remembered upon our deaths. The blog came back to me yesterday as my priest gave a sermon about holding on to the parts of our past that no longer serve us. This got me thinking, what would be on my rubbish heap? What garbage would I prune away an
Do you engage in moments of radical compassion towards your body and soul?
Do you give yourself the space of grace?
Do you engage with people in your lives differently in 2018 than you did 1 year, 5 years, 10 years ago?
Do you find yourself stepping out, taking risks, being vulnerable? OR Are you stuck in the overwhelm?
Are you tired of the buzzy, crazy chatter?
Are you sitting deep in the knowledge that you are a person of calling & purpose but you just don’t know what

Sexuality is not a choice. It is the way we are born. I am a bisexual woman who is married to a man who at one point identified as a lesbian and now mostly identifies as queer.

We are meant to BE – LOVED.
When we talk
Like many of you who use social media, my friend Briana and I connected on Facebook during the 2016 election season when a mutual friend formed a “secret” Facebook group as a safe space for us to talk about our experiences. Although we have never met in person, Briana and I formed a deep bond based on our mutual love of advocacy, politics, and women’s empowerment.
