REWIND: A courageous conversation about the opioid crisis with Lucy Caldwell

REWIND: A courageous conversation about the opioid crisis 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…

REWIND: A Voice From the Future with Tommi Crump and Tommi’s Tales

REWIND: A Voice From the Future with Tommi Crump and Tommi's Tales

How do YOU spell Legacy? Ray Bradbury believes, “Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built, or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way, so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you are there. It does not matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into…

REWINDING Courageous Conversations: Surviving Human Trafficking Featuring Susan Young.

REWINDING Courageous Conversations: Surviving Human Trafficking Featuring Susan Young.

Our theme these two months is Courageous Conversations. It’s Big! And sometimes uncomfortable. To get a return on our investment, we must invest in our authenticity and vulnerability. We will have to be perfectly imperfect and receive, in love, information about issues that may be uncomfortable to think about, deal with, anticipate, and forgive. We will contemplate, evaluate, learn about, be surprised by, and celebrate. We discovered during previous shows that the ability to have a courageous conversation is often a process, a journey, not an event. It does not always just happen when it logically should; sometimes, one must…

Building a legacy through The High Tea Society featuring Mariessa Terrell, Esq.

Building a legacy through The High Tea Society featuring Mariessa Terrell, Esq.

“Little girls learn a lot from the women they grow up around, whether they are related or not. Older women are like midwives who assist in the birth of a young woman’s consciousness. It is not just what they do. It’s who they are and how they demonstrate who they are that provides young women with “womanhood training.” Young women and girls learn about themselves and what it means to be a woman by watching older women in their lives. They watch how and what (and if) they cook. They care what they wear, how they carry themselves, and how…

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 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…

Unwrapping your Gifts: Daddy Jay Little and Daughter Gia build a gift of legacy together.

Author Kahlil Gibran in his 1962 book The Prophet says, “And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children. And he said: Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even…
