  I really liked the interview. JK seems very grounded for a celebrity billionaire. Authentic, too.   My favorite part was actually hearing that her first book tour was very hit or miss. That gives me comfort.   Usually, promotional events on my calendar turn out pretty well....

Tonight I went to my women on mission bible group and as always I enjoyed being in the presence of like-minded women.

Many parents make the mistake of NOT discussing the topic of sexuality with teens. Keeping silent will not keep teens from experimenting with heterosexual activities and even homosexual activities. Studies show that more teens are questioning their sexuality and most likely parents will be the last...

First day of school is always exciting, at least for me. The minty smell of new school paste, pencil shavings as I shove virgin pencils into the grinder, chalk dust and, in 1969, going to high school are the highlights of the new school year.

I love that Red Room gives writers on the space prompts.  This is the first time I've rolled with it.   In high school I thought I was so ugly and fat.  Two years ago a friend of mine from my high school days posted a picture of me on their facebook page and tagged me.  I was immediately...
