This is Us, featuring Author and Ted Talk speaker about Leaving Large, Ms. Michelle Piettes Part 1

I quote “Life will work for me when I accept … The labels placed on me don’t always fit. With its structures, expectations, and divisions, society has fostered certain ideas about women that are not always flattering. Many people believe that strong women are not feminine and that assertive women cannot be trusted. My all-time favorite is that women who exhibit any degree of clarity about who they are and what they want are dangerous. Do not forget that a bossy woman is domineering, making her the B word. We won’t bother to mention the myths that women are not…

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

In her own words, “We had music growing up, 78RPM’s that evolved into 45RPM’s and, always, the radio.  The radio in my day, Black and white, played everything.  Gospel Spirituals, even some opera when Leontyne Price came along.  You could listen to R & B late at night or you could go to the other station and listen to popular music.  There was also jazz if the wind was right.  I feel so sorry for the kids who only hear one kind of music.  Where do your dreams come from? My dream was not to publish or to even be…

Women’s History Month Celebrates Michelle Obama

Women's History Month Celebrates Michelle Obama

It’s March, National Women’s History Month when we intentionally recognize the ongoing great contributions women have made to our nation. Frankly Speaking with Tyra G is celebrating this month with a twist. We are looking at phenomenal women and how we embrace and manage our universal experiences, our rainbows and clouds, and our courage and resolve. We are a journey, not a destination; a process, not an event. Even when we are still, we are motion; loving, serving, nurturing, encouraging, and empowering. We are love and love does. But sometimes, sometimes we get stuck between our no longer the familiar,…

Women's History Month salutes women daring greatly, featuring Helenia Bragg and Kari Galloway and the story of Friends of Guest House

We begin Women’s History and Appreciation Month celebrating phenomenal women who walk into this space through many doors. They willingly share their stories authentically and often vulnerably in order to pay forward what they have learned and to celebrate each other.  Thank you, ladies! Irish author C.S. Lewis says, “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You Too? I thought I was the only one.” As a result of the women who have agreed to join me at the table, many friendships, although virtual will be forged. Author and life coach Iyanla Vanzant says,…

Women’s History Month Celebrates Service Women of the Vietnam War

Women's History Month Celebrates Service Women of the Vietnam War

Women’s History Month is celebrating veterans and active-duty military who keep us and have kept us out of constant harm’s way, often at great costs. Considering this is the year after the 101st year anniversary of WWI, we are reminded that war is a part of human history. My goal is to share diverse war stories across the spectrum of age, gender, and race to include family impact and cultural legacies. The Vietnam war was my coming-of-age war. I became immersed in and confused by the concurrent war at home, about the necessity of US involvement, while at the same time grieving…

Women’s History Month recognizes Brig. Gen USAF Retired Sandra Gregory for her service then and now.

Women's History Month recognizes Brig. Gen USAF Retired Sandra Gregory for her service then and now.

Do you go the extra mile? Do you do more Than what is expected? Do you expect the best? These questions pertain to your relationship with the world and how you treat yourself. Do you go the extra mile when it comes to you, or do you think that the least is enough for you? Some people believe that struggle, servitude, and sacrifice are the best they can hope for. They look for ways and reasons to be okay with the things they believe are not okay with your lives. Other people believe they must constantly be on the giving end.…

Black History Month: Stories that need telling with guest Colonel Arthur Nick Nicolson Retired, and current president of the Mt.Olive Cemetery Historical Preservation Society

Black History Month: Stories that need telling with guest Colonel Arthur Nick Nicolson Retired, and current president of the Mt.Olive Cemetery Historical Preservation Society

The story of Black History Month begins in 1915, half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States. That September, the Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson, and the prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by black Americans and other peoples of African descent. By the late 1960s, thanks in part to the Civil Rights Movement and a growing awareness of black identity, Negro History Week had evolved into Black History Month on many college campuses. President Gerald…

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Healing the Wreakage with Dr. Sarah A. John in Haiti

“It’s true that, depending upon which community to ultimately decide to call a second home, you might just be the only medical professional available to meet the needs of multitudes.  The more remote the community in a developing country, the less likely it is to have a Western-trained medical professional.  You are likely to be very welcomed in your new community, but you should also expect to be viewed as an outsider and treated as such until you’ve established yourself and proven your abilities.  You’ll need to work with the community’s healers and find common ground in the provision of patient…

Hope Reflected, Restored, and Repositoned with Meesh Peters and Tijani Musa.

Rob Bell in his 2016 book How to Be Here, reflects, “That question the blinking line in your mind or on your mobile device asks is: Who are you to do this? It can keep you locked up for years, living in fear and doubt, looking over your fence or your shoulder, and comparing yourself with the people around you. But the first word about you is a gift, and you’re here, breathing, and you get to participate in the world’s ongoing creation. Creation is exhausting, exhilarating, draining, and invigorating, and it’s also a mystery because everybody sits down to…

REWIND: Sweep in a new season with the courage to be vulnerable with Dr. Brene Brown and Krista Tippett from NPR

REWIND: Sweep in a new season with the courage to be vulnerable with Dr. Brene Brown and Krista Tippett from NPR

Spring is the season during which the natural world revives and reinvigorates after the colder winter months. During spring, dormant plants begin to grow again, new seedlings sprout out of the ground and hibernating animals awake. What are you doing to revive and reinvigorate your dreams, your soul, your mind? What script are you creating? Does it contain thoughts like “I am not enough!” or “I am more than enough!”? Are you stuck between your no longer and you not yet? Or are you willing to take new risks and experience the vulnerability that comes with it? Do you understand that…
