am I an empath? what it means to feel too much

If there is one thing I see among my age group that really bothers me, it is a trend toward making apathy seem “cool.” It’s becoming the norm to just drop people from your life willy-nilly, to not care about anything, to exude a hard outer shell to avoid getting hurt. I’ve tried to understand, …

get goods AND do good? easy charitable shopping

Every dollar is a vote. What you pay for, you support. Too often as consumers, we focus on the end product. We go into a store or shop online, and we willingly research into every review, every detail we can find on a product, but how much do we know about where these products come …

We spend so much of our time and energy working on our relationship with the Father…what about the mother?

finding positive summer body image

What a relief to finally be experiencing sunshine and warm weather. Winter is so last season. The long winter has left me especially appreciative of spring and summer, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still have hesitant feelings.
