This morning, I’m journaling in my usual spot—the left end of my couch where the springs are so well worn I sink easily into it in the early hours of the morning, draping my grandmother’s holy quilt (I use the word holy intentionally—while it is full of holes, it’s als...

LIFELINE’s launch is just around the corner (May 8th—just TWO weeks away!), and I could not be more excited.

The past two weeks have been “bru-tiful” (a term coined from author Glennon Doyle, meaning brutal and beautiful) as I’ve grappled with an increase in seizures an...

I had a seizure a little over a week ago.

If you’ve followed my writing for a while, you know that I have suffered from periodic seizures since my oldest daughter was born almost twelve years ago.

I’ve been very lucky in that four years have passed since my last seizure,...

Over the past few weeks, I've interviewed several musicians and artists who've shared about their own creative lifelines and the impact those lifelines have had on their broader communities.
