A new lease on…everything

You Are Not Alone : Stories from the front lines of womanhood

Once again, I am surprised at how long it has been since I’ve met you here on The Miracle Journal.  These last nine months have been anything but predictable.  But that unpredictability has, in its own way, worked very much in my favor.

My name is Leah and I’m a classaholic

penumbra

It’s time to come clean.  I need to unburden my soul.  I’ve had an intervention with myself and here’s the cold, hard truth:

I’m a class-aholic.

Yes, it’s true.  In the past three months, I’ve registered for five classes.  FIVE.  All business/professional development classes.  All running at roughly the same time.  And all getting ready …

From second language to first book

It took me two years to write my first book.

Thanks to The Miracle Journal, it took me two days to write my second book.

The miracle of getting to the end of the day

It’s been a hell of a day.  I woke up suddenly to the sound of thunder cracking this morning, and the rest of the day felt just as unexpected and jarring. This morning was filled with small and large fires that needed to my attention. This afternoon I was pulled in several different directions and …
