I always enjoyed preparing for starting the school year. I so enjoyed the “back to school” shopping with my mother. It was not often we got to shop with my

What if there was a place where brides could go to search for vendors who giveback in a million different ways? Guess what? There is! The Black Sheep Bride community is the answer for all brides longing to make sure that their bridal purchases help improve the lives of others in the United States and around the globe.

My Dad's birthday is today. Happy Birthday, Daddy! Around Father’s Day, social media usually asks us, "What’s the best advice your father has ever given you?” I’d like to answer that question.
Although, my Dad gave me much advice and typical cliché’ sayings, the most important thing he ever taught me wasn’t through words - it was through action. COMMITMENT. It was the way he lived out loving my mother. That’s what my Dad showed me.
My parents were high school sweethearts. Married young,

Mothers. We all have that in common. Everyone has a mother. Whether we’ve had a good experience or a bad experience, we all have one. Some of our mothers brought us up, some of them let us down.

Thankfully, there is grace!
It has been my experience that motherhood brings connection. Connection between women
