Stepping Back after a Toxic Relationship

I shared a post a while back saying that sometimes it is necessary to take a break from people. At the time, my thoughts were to make sure you don’t deplete your energy trying to be there for everyone but yourself. Oftentimes, those of us who care deeply feel guilty when we cannot do for

MCBD 2019 – Charles Meets a Fire Marshal

Multicultural Children’s Book Day is January 25th this year, and I’m participating! Follow the hashtag #ReadYourWorld for updates, to learn about books you may want to add to your library, and for a chance to win a book during the twitter party Friday (01/25/2019) evening!

Level Up – Part 2

I’m guessing that the majority of you laughed at the QPark video because he was dancing alone, only he could hear music in his headphones, and people were pointing and laughing at him.

Indie Author Day 2017

I attended my first Indie Author Day this past Saturday. Well, technically, I attended. I had already promised to attend another event first, so I planned to catch the second half of the day at the library. I had never heard of “Indie Author Day,” so I was a little excited to meet authors who

Prayer Talk

I find that many people who are requesting prayer are doing so because, on some level, they feel like they won’t get their prayers answered. I see a lot of “pray for me” posts that are not specific (ex. surgery goes well, will find a job to support family, etc.), and many of those are
