There are some things we just don’t talk about. . . with Angela Peabody and F A Cole

There are some things we just don't talk about. . . with Angela Peabody and F A Cole

Author Susan Taylor says, “Loving is our strongest human need. In our effort to satisfy our deepest craving, we regularly look outside ourselves to find a person to love. Don’t you love being in love? I know I do. I’ve invested more time and energy in love relationships than I have in most other things. But a relationship with another person will never satisfy our hunger for love. Each of us is created in and of love. God loves us. God is love in us. Each of us is the very activity of love. We have all the love we…

Author Richard Kearney says in his book On Stories “Telling stories is as basic to human beings as eating. More so, in fact, for while food makes us live, stories are what make our lives worth living.” Isak Dinesen says, “To be a person is to have a story to tell. —” Author  David Denborough, Ph.D., writes  “Who we are and what we do are influenced by the stories that we tell ourselves…There are many different events in our lives, but only some of them get formed into the storylines of our identities.

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,…

A courageous conversation about opioids with Lucy Caldwell

A courageous conversation about opioids with Lucy Caldwell

I want to open the door to a common thought space with some quotes from people who have walked into dark places and come up with dark solutions or who have loved others who have done so. I don’t know anyone who wakes up and say, “I want to be a criminal, I want to be homeless, or I want to be an addict. And yet sometimes the unlikely happens… Anonymous from Birmingham Alabama says: “I’m a good person. I’m a contributing member of society. I’m educated. I have a good job, make good money, have wonderful relationships with my…

In sickness and in health with Dr. Gloria Ivey Crowe.

In sickness and in health with Dr. Gloria Ivey Crowe.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says, “Women, who are key in maintaining healthy families, access the health system more than men, both for themselves and on behalf of their children. Many become pregnant and give birth, a significant health event, then typically become their child’s primary caregiver, a role that greatly influences household health overall. Elder and long-term care issues affect women more often because they live longer; have higher rates of disability and chronic health problems; and lower incomes than men on average, which puts them at the greater need for state and community resources, such as Medicaid.…

This is Us Chapter One: You can count on me with Jaleh Moslehi.

This is Us Chapter One: You can count on me with Jaleh Moslehi.

We don’t usually spend time considering the impacts of human choice unless our power to choose for ourselves is taken away. But for many young women, the right to choose how their lives unfold was never an option. Whether dictated by culture, circumstance, family, or poverty, their paths are often already set. It’s all too common for women to surrender their chance for education and career. But self-determination is a dream that many young women hold onto. And for the women who receive scholarships each year from schools in the United States,  choosing education over old cultural norms allows them…

Surviving human trafficking with Susan Young

Surviving human trafficking with Susan Young

Danielle Douglas was 17 years old, a freshman at Northeastern University, when she met the trafficker who forced her into two years of sex slavery. Her mother Jamie spoke with UNICEF USA about the factors that made her daughter vulnerable — and what parents need to know about trafficking in the United States. Jamie Chesman: We definitely had some mother-daughter angst. She didn’t always give me a lot of information about her life or interests. I think that a lot of our daughters feel like they’re ready before they’re ready — she definitely felt that way. We dropped her off, carloads full of things from Bed…
