Finding my Way to Shore

Finding my way to Shore  A letter to my sisters… The truth has been weighing heavily on me recently and I am left wondering: Why is it so difficult to live from our truth? Perhaps it is based in the judgment, vulnerability, and exposure we might encounter… In my journey I have discovered it takes…

Forgive

To Move Forward, Forgive What is Behind I recently went on a road trip by bus with a group of parents. I had just settled down in my seat and organized my belongings, when I was interrupted by an urgent whisper. “Danielle!” I turned to my left to see who was trying to get my…
