Moments of Mindfulness: Everybody has one, many of us are.

Moments of Mindfulness: Everybody has one, many of us are.

Although motherhood related celebrations have existed for thousands of years, it was President Woodrow Wilson in 1914 who officially designated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day in the United States. Mother is our first intimate relationship, first friend, and teacher. She is created with special powers. She has eyes in the back of her head, can hear through walls, and can catch us before we fall. Her love is the launchpad for all kinds of promise. “Super-her-o” mother understands what her children do not say, makes a scraped knee better with a kiss, and gives hugs that last…

She Believes in Me: Encourage, Empower, Inspire with Founder Rene Gorman and Michelle Galliano

She Believes in Me: Encourage, Empower, Inspire with Founder Rene Gorman and Michelle Galliano

Contrary to the belief that this is a male-dominated world, women provide the foundation of power, grace, wisdom, justice, creativity, and hope. Throughout history, the world has witnessed many great women of strength who managed to tap into their Everyday Power to leave an indelible mark on society. However, it is important that there is a transfer of empowerment to the next generations. Actress Audrey Hepburn said, “I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.” The…

Sowing Seeds of Service above Self with Tonia Oldham

Sowing Seeds of Service above Self with Tonia Oldham

I love it when I get together, courageous enough to look and walk beyond words. Giving each other permission to expose gifts of imperfection without judgment. Frankly Speaking is our time and space to help, heal, educate, and encourage each other into the best version of ourselves no matter where we are in our journey. Our spiritual doggie bag this week includes a note from LOVE also known as God and as offered by author Glennon Doyle Melton and I quote: “Stop holding your breath. Breathe. There is enough.

Thank you for your service with Sandra Gregory and Sylvia’s Lights

Thank you for your service with Sandra Gregory and Sylvia's Lights

I turn to our author and life coach, Iyanla Vansant to create our common thought space while we are together today. It was published in 2000 in her book Until Today. She begins with these questions: Do you go the extra mile? Do you do more than what is expected? Do you expect the best? These questions pertain not only to your relationship with the world but also 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? There are people who believe that…

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.

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…

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…
