Women’s Laughing Perspective
Patricia Morgan, Author, Speaker, Councellor
In 1992 John Gray’s runaway best seller, Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus, was published. You’d think that the question “Why can’t a woman be more like a man?” would seldom get a quiet whimper. Surprisingly there are still those who yell “sexist!” if you describe those differences.

Attitude for Greatness
Contributor ,
What is attitude? It is what you think, believe, feel, expect, act, in relation to yourself, life, people, and your goals. Attitude can be positive or it can be negative; it can be limiting or it can be expanding; if you have a positive attitude, you feel alive, well, loved, happy, liked, confident,...you feel good; if you have a negative attitude, you feel angry, resentful, fearful, depressed, anxious, hopeless,... you feel bad. Your feelings are your thermometer to your attitude and, as we will see below, your life is the mirror to your attitude.

Somebody Had to Do It. So I Did
Contributor ,
In rural areas of Honduras, women are so confined that some can't even go to church by themselves. But after land reform in the 1970s, cooperative organizations of campesinos sprang up and they had roles for women: taking notes, pouring coffee, sweeping up after the meetings. I was one of those women until the day the men decided to send a few women to the city, Tegucigalpa, to be trained in leadership and advocacy.

Retirement Hobbies - Remember the Joy of Lifelong Learning
Contributor ,
In September 2007 - at the age of 60 - I enrolled in a 20 week refresher course in Conversational Irish (Ghaeilge Labhartha) at University College Cork. Many of my generation were alienated towards the Irish language, because it was compulsory to learn it in school, where it was often taught in an ineffective and harsh manner.

Is Stress at Work Only If You Lose Your Job?
Darlene Siddons, Author
Stress isn’t only if you are laid off or are let go, stress is in the work place no matter what. Getting laid off and/or your job being eliminated just adds to the stress of it all. Sort of like waiting for the other shoe to drop syndrome.

Darlene Siddons, Author
We stage our life the way we want it to look; how we want to see it and find a design in order for that to happen. Videos are great for mapping out how we want to see things, then when you add affirmations and music, that makes them even more effective as it taps into more of your senses and your whole body can be empowered into making your desires manifest.

My Time
Tami Richards, Contributing Author
As time is a fact of reality which no sane person can deny, I am certain that it is something that we all consider at some point in our lives. There comes a point when one wonders about time and how we, as individuals, fit into it. A time when we wonder a little deeper than how long it takes to drive to work so we can set the alarm clock a few minutes later. When we wonder about more than how much longer until the kids go to bed. There comes a point when we wonder about something a little more involved than how long to cook pasta without overcooking it.

Working Toward 'yes We Did' - Shana McLean Moore
Contributor ,
As a person who goes on record as a passionate advocate for community building, I’m nervous talking politics. I suppose I fear that anything I say on the topic will be as polarizing as inserting myself in the middle of a sibling squabble, with half my audience nodding its head in smug “Hah!-mom’s-on-my-side” superiority while the other rolls its eyes in “Whateverrrr” disgust.

A Blessing in the Frozen Food Section
Meredith Morckel, ARCHIVED
With the book "God Stories" (2008), Editor Jennifer Skiff has compiled an anthology of first-hand accounts by people who have seen God, heard from God, or witnessed something miraculous that they attribute to God. It's a book that asks to be read slowly. I only got through two or three stories at a time before I had to put it down and digest what I'd read. The stories are powerful because they can't be explained by science or dismissed by coincidence. Like the parting of the Red Sea, like Lazarus rising from the dead, like Moses and the burning bush, they are miracles.

Climb To The Top Of The Mountain
lorna darden, Avon Sales Representative
It seems that no matter how much climbing we do it always seems there’s more climbing to do to get to the top. Today times are much harder then it was 20 or 30 years ago. Things were much cheaper, the towns were much safer and the kids were just kids. Now things are not so easy anymore. The richer get richer and the poorer get poorer.

Fearfully & Wonderfully Made.

At the tender age of eleven years a remark made by my mother engraved itself into my memory. It concerned a girl some six or so years older than I.

How humiliated she must have been. My heart aches for her even now.
