I became a marriage counsellor between my body and brain

There was a time I dreaded going out. I would do anything I could to come up with a reason to avoid it. Every time I went out I had to deal with the anxiety of not knowing how my guts would behave. It was a bad relationship I had with my body. I have […]

Why kids need to learn to cook (PSA from a junior high kid)

I have a guest blogger today! My son, Liam. He wrote a mini essay/speech for school on the importance of kids learning how to cook. He did really well on the project and so I asked him if he’d like to turn it into a blog. So here it is, his very first blog on […]
