One letter short of the empty nest

A letter to my Baby Girl:
Remember that time when I poured my heart out about you leaving for your freshman year of college? Four years ago it seemed like such a monumental change, with your sister already living in Philadelphia and you heading to a campus nine hours away. Now we’ve reached the end of this summer - possibly the last summer you’ll spend here - and it’s a much bigger adjustment than that of four years ago.…

What I Learned after Four Years of Surrounding Myself with Girl Hate

No one wants to believe that a life can be ruined by a few tweets.



I try to tell them, but they won’t believe me. They won’t believe that 120 characters could do real harm. They are so wrong. Girl hate is real and powerful and I’ve lived in it.



I spent my entire college career living in an all-female dorm as a Resident Assistant. Each year, I saw young women being victimized and victimizing other women. Sometimes, all it took was a single tweet and a resident would pack up… Continue

All I could think about was being home.
I learned a lot about prayer in those days.
It got me through.
