Lost On Your Path? You’ve Got This

I very often find myself getting caught up in the questions, Who am I? What do I want to do/be? What do I love? This is the ultimate question isn’t i? To find what we truly love to do and be happy doing it? But I find it does not always help to get asked this same question by friends, family, and colleagues as well on a regular basis.

Embracing Our Feminine Nature

Women have the ability to create and foster life. When you stop and actually think about that, it is absolutely miraculous. Too often are women compared to, and try to compete with men.

Creamy Millet Porridge

Growing up, I was never too crazy about oatmeal and porridge. Perhaps because it was always made quite bland and ended up being weirdly thick and slimy. Only recently has my love for breakfast propelled me to experiment with all different kinds of recipes. This millet porridge is a wonderful option, not only because it has a rich and creamy consistency, but because it is made of an ancient grain that holds a host of […]
