I’ve Been A Poser

I have been MIA for awhile now. Well not completely. I’ve been posting online fairly regularly, but I have checked out somewhat as well. I sat last week while being down flat with the sickness when suddenly the past ten months replayed every scene before me. Until that moment I hadn’t fully realized the weight Read more about I’ve Been A Poser[…]






Existing vs Living

Why are you here? Why are you here on this earth, at this time in history? Have you ever asked yourself that question? Why not a 100 years ago, or a hundred years from now? Surely there must be a purpose, right? Why do we exist right now? Which begs another question I ask myself Read more about Existing vs Living[…]






Time Brings Change, Change Takes Time

Rolling River God by Nichole Nordeman has been a favorite song of mine for years. You can listen to it here and quickly understand why I love it so much.

A Crisis?

I am not a fan of referring to the abortion-minded woman as being in a “crisis pregnancy.” There-I-said-it.

Victim Or Survivor?

Recently, after sharing my story with a small group of ladies one of them asked me, “Do you ever want to erase all the bad memories from your mind?” Without hesitation I answered… No. I’ve never once wanted to forget all the things I have gone through. Even the super-duper tough and ugly stuff, the moments Read more about Victim Or Survivor?[…]






I May Have Just Simplified The Importance Of Life.

I was asked a very complex, yet simple, question last week during an interview. At first I tensed up then I exhaled and realized, this is far more simple than we are making it out to be. Tam… What do you think it will take to end abortion? [Insert that tension quickly followed by a Read more about I May Have Just Simplified The Importance Of Life.[…]






Dear Nicki Minaj…

“I thought I was going to die. . . It was the hardest thing I have ever gone through. . . It has haunted me all my life.” Nicki Minaj on her teen abortion.  I have to admit, reading this surprised me. Not the abortion part, but her remorse.
