A love letter to my mom

Every once in a while my mom will pick up the phone to find me on the other end saying, “I owe you an apology.”

Her response is usually a stammering, “Oh….uh….okay……..?”

One such conversation happened a couple years ago – it was in the early days of The Miracle Journal, and things were opening …

A book proposal update

How is it possible that a whole WEEK has gone by since I’ve written?  That just doesn’t seem right.  And the truth is that things are likely to be a bit spotty this week as well because I’ve got a big deadline at work and I’m a bit behind.

But I did want to give …

With this ring…

This weekend I had an adventure that I thought would be very solemn and meditative, but ended up being hysterically funny in the best possible way.  And I came out of it with a ring.  But perhaps I should back up a bit and tell you the story from the beginning… 

The final assignment …

The book proposal

If you had told me four days ago that I was going to write this miracle, I would have told you that you were flippin’ crazy! And yet…it’s funny how life works.

As you know, I submitted a book proposal to Hay House Publishing in March. It’s a highly competitive opportunity given to people who …

How not winning is a win

not-winning

A few weeks ago, I talked about a six-week class that I had decided to take with KC Baker, who helps “Unleash the brilliance of women’s voices.”  The course started two weeks ago and so far it has been A-MA-ZING.  I have met some incredible women and the community that we are creating is really …

The divine cuddle

woman-sleeping

This beautiful miracle – and important reminder – comes from reader Lisa:

Any parent who has ever had a toddler creep into their bed in the wee hours of the night know . . . there is little to no rest from that point on.

This was the case for my …

When grandparents come to visit

KPMe

A quick note before I get to tonight’s guest post – I just ran into a woman who I know, but rarely see.  I was so touched when she made a point to ask me how my book proposal going – she could only know about it through this Journal and Facebook.  It reminded me …

Finding our humanity

Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance

I had a couple of profound experiences during presentations at this weekend’s newspaper conference.  One of them came in a luncheon about covering mass shootings, particularly school shootings.

It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  At the front of the room two unlikely men sat together: John Voket, the associate editor of the Newtown Bee (the weekly …
