Real, messy, honest relationships. One note: Pay attention at the beginning of the book because you will be introduced … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty

BOOK REVIEW: Informed Consent: Critical Truths Essential to Your Health and to the Health of Future Generations by Michele Stanford, M.Ed., CHC

I began to read Michele’s story and as a woman, my heart was filled with compassion and empathy for her and the situation she was in.

Book Review: What on Earth am I Doing Here?

I have read extensively about this topic, watched movies (okay, with my glasses off for most of them-and I am extremely nearsighted), visited memorials, and discussed it in classes. I thought I was done.   And … Continue reading Book Review: What on Earth am I Doing Here?
