Should I be a working mom? Four questions to ask…

Best-selling Christian author Jen Hatmaker probably meant well when she said, “You will never have this day with your children again, tomorrow they’ll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift, breathe and notice, smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, mama.

What to do when opposition strikes

It’s not a matter of if it will get you, but when and how often. Unlike the Headless Horseman or other ghoulish tales this time of year, opposition is not a myth.

When to breathe new life into a dream (and when to let it die)

We often hear “dream big” or “reach for the stars” as adages on how we should set goals and plan our lives. Walt Disney simply put it: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” That’s all wonderful advice, until it’s not. What if Disney was wrong? Can all dreams really come true? We don’t live in a fairytale, and sometimes the big dreams we hold dear to our heart — the ones we’ve been working toward for so long — don’t come to fruition — and it’s not always because we lacked...
