  A chieving peace is often an abstract desire. It is sometimes taken for granted — because you can’t touch it like a physical object that sits on your coffee table waiting to be picked up when you need it. But we all know that it is real, because you can feel it; it may be in spurts, but it can be […]

  I have often asked myself, “How do I find peace when there is no peace?” Many of us find the peace we seek by going to church or simply connecting with the higher power through prayer and the study of scripture. But when surrounded by obstacles in day-to-day life, it is sometimes very hard to reclaim our “in motion” peace. The peace […]

Run the dishwasher only when full and at night — that’s more efficient and reduces the carbon footprint. […]

More than half the deaths nationally were opioid-related, and that number has increased an astounding 137 percent since 2000, according to the Centers for Disease Control […]

I called my mother during my lunchtime and asked her to please press my hair — something she hasn’t done for me since I was a little girl. I went to my mother yesterday because I needed something familiar — a safe place. I needed her hands on me. I needed to be reminded that although I am growing in a different […]
