This Is Us featuring author, coach, and entrepreneur Sharon Kelly discussing blended families.

Per the U.S. Bureau of Census, 1300 new stepfamilies are formed each day. Forty percent of families in the U.S. are blended with at least one partner having a child from a previous relationship before marriage. The number of kids living in blended families has been stable for nearly thirty years. Children of Hispanic, Black, and white backgrounds are equally likely to live in this type of family. A little over a generation. You will increase your chances of successfully bonding with your new stepchildren by thinking about what they need. Age, gender, and personality are not irrelevant, but all children…

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 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,…

Womens History Month, the origins, and the fight for the right to vote.

Womens History Month, the origins, and the fight for the right to vote.

Women’s History Month in the United States grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history, and the society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa. Did you know? To coincide with Women’s History Month 2011, the White House issued a 50-year progress report on the status of women in the United States. It found that younger women are now more likely than their male counterparts to hold…

Black History Month salutes “Love in Action” with the late Congressman John Lewis and NPR’s Krista Tippett

Black History Month salutes "Love in Action" with the late Congressman John Lewis and NPR's Krista Tippett

First  Corinthians 13: 4-8 says “Love is patient and kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing but rejoices in the truth. … Love never ends”. Wikipedia says, “Love is considered to be a positive and negative: with its virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”; and its vice representing human moral flaw, akin to vanity, selfishness, and egotism, Author Glennon Doyle Melton expresses love as a message from God, and I quote:  “When you were born, I put a piece of me in…

Black History Month Celebrates a Kaleidoscope of African Americans

Black History Month Celebrates a Kaleidoscope of African Americans

Did you know? The NAACP was founded on February 12, 1909, the centennial anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln? In the decades that followed, mayors of cities across the country began issuing yearly proclamations recognizing Negro History Week. 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 Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of…

“THIS IS US” featuring Cape Cod Entrepreneur Sandy Wycoff.

"THIS IS US" featuring Cape Cod Entrepreneur Sandy Wycoff.

Life will accommodate you in any way that you choose. Life is always listening to the silent requests of your heart and mind. Life is always surveying the landscape of your heart, gathering the bits and pieces of the emotions buried there. Life can be an open book through which you can learn about great mysteries and wonders. Or life can be a mysterious and frightening pit through which you fear to tread. Or life can be a basket into which you can place your treasures, in which you carry abundant blessings. Until today, you may not have realized that…

NEW YEAR MOMENTS OF MINDFULNESS featuring Tyra G

NEW YEAR MOMENTS OF MINDFULNESS featuring Tyra G

What’s so special about celebrating the New Year? “Why does the start of the new year carry such special symbolism? And why is its celebration so common around the world, as it has been for at least as long as there have been calendars? Behavior this universal must surely be tied to something basic in the human animal, something profoundly meaningful and important, given all the energy and resources we invest not just in the celebration but also in our efforts to make good on a fresh set of resolutions, even though we mostly fail to keep them. It’s fascinating…
