  • The Virtue of Gratitude

    The Virtue of Gratitude

    On this Thanksgiving weekend, I want to remind you that gratitude is a virtue that is essential to our happiness. It requires nothing from us to have good things in our lives but it does require something from us to acknowledge and appreciate the good things in our lives.  It takes a willingness to see life as it actually is to take in and savor the good things we enjoy. To live is to suffer. It is true. In life, there will always be pain and loss. We cannot live without experiencing the often disappointing incongruence between our hopes and the realities we live in. However to be alive at all...

    Boundaries - Facebook Live Transcript

    We're going to talk a little bit about boundaries today, and I am going to be drawing on some questions that people wrote. First, I'm going to just give you some ideas about boundaries, and then I will look at specific questions that people have written in and just kind of think through some of these pieces.

  • Sex and Motherhood - Podcast Transcript

    Sex and Motherhood - Podcast Transcript

    This is a topic that sometimes comes up when groups of moms are together. We joke about our sex life and bemoan the fact that having little children has killed all flickers of desire in us. In fact, one of the listeners who heard that I was going to be addressing this topic on the podcast sent me this meme, and I will admit I laughed out loud when I read it: "You can thank your dad that you were born because chances are pretty good your mom was not in the mood." But all laughing and stereotypes aside, this is a really tender, sensitive topic for many women.
