WHERE’S THE JUSTICE…THE OTHER WOMAN

I can think of few things that throw me into a rabid dissertation like ‘the other woman’ scandals.  And here is yet another.

Our revered CIA Director, General David Petraeus, another victim of RDS (restless dick syndrome) will rise above and probably run for public office; check under the bus and you’ll find Paula Broadwell.

There is no masculine word counter-part for ‘mistress’ and I’m wondering why the National Organization for Women hasn’t offered one up to the Urban…

Series/5-15-12/Learn about All the Women of the Bible

Learn about 52 women who changed the course of Bible history.

1. JEZEBEL

Revelation 2:20-23

As we have already dealt with this woman in the portion dealing with named women of the Bible (see Jezebel No. 2), all we need to do at this point is to briefly remind the reader of the way this sinister female is dealt with. Some writers adopt the reading, “thy wife Jezebel” and so regard her as an actual person, a false prophetess who sought to seduce the saints in the church in…

Who Am I?...Rediscovering Yourself after Motherhood and Childhood Trauma

     I had the most insightful conversation with a close friend of mine the other week.  I love her so much. We share common struggles along with some tough mother and relationship issues.  How do you find yourself after losing yourself in motherhood for so long? How do you even begin to figure that out, especially if you were missing part of yourself to begin with due to your less than perfect childhood?

     Many woman wake up…

Woman Conquers Antarctica on Her Own

It’s one thing to accept total responsibility for yourself, but there’s far more self-reliance and strength of character involved when you’ve undertaken an adventure nearly two months long, alone, and trekking nearly blind in the vast, cold region of Antarctica.

Being Authentic - My Inventory and Testimony

  I always take time to do personal inventory.  I'm a big fan of manifestation and creation.It's very important to realise that our outside environment is a manifestation of our inner belief system. So I honestly look at my environment. My home, myself, kids, boyfriend, friends, work......So I start out asking myself... what goals have I reached, what ones are I in the midst of working towards, and what would I like to change…
