Honor Begins at Home

3 Reasons Honor Begins at Home

We all wish to grow healthy, happy relationships with our children. We interact, play and talk with our children to enjoy one another and feel connected. In those moments when we are in conflict with our kids at home, we wonder "What can I do to enhance my…

Domestic Violence and Pregnancy

While it's a hard concept to fathom, the reality is that many women are

abused-both physically and emotionally-while they are pregnant. The most

common reason for abuse during pregnancy is that it is a continuation

of pre-pregnancy abuse. Women who are abused prior to pregnancy are at

increased risk of being abused during the pregnancy. Domestic abuse

during pregnancy is also the result of:

* Stress related to the pregnancy-especially if the pregnancy… Continue

I'm Too Sexy for my Black Lycra Gown

For crying out loud, people, why can’t it be normal to wear gowns as a swimming suit? And if this can’t be normal, then why can’t cellulite and varicose veins be considered beautiful? You may ask, “Why is Kristy ranting so?”

Well, you guessed it.

I did a little swim suit shopping today.

Well, I did a little swim suit shopping in my own home. I ordered a variety of one-pieces with new “magic” sucking-in technology, some with skirts attached, some with detachable… Continue

In some of your low moments have you asked yourself this question; Did I Marry the right Person?

We must realize that our marriage/relationship like all others has a life cycle;

  1. In the Beginning - You fell madly in love with each other, anticipated each others calls and touch and liked each other's peculiarities.
  2. After a few years of…

Get Out of the Do

It's Monday morning and I'm looking at what I accomplished last week. I was SO busy - catching up after big snow storms caused havoc to my work schedule (due to a six days of no school for my son), keeping on top of current client needs, responding to new clients and marketing opportunities, staying on top of email and phone calls, chairing a big volunteer event and taking care of me, the house, my family and meals. Although I did…

The Olympics and March Madness

2010 Olympic Headline news: "Apolo Anton Ohno yawned seconds before his big race." What we can't figure out is why viewers were so stunned. This man should be friggin' exhausted after training like he did to make it this far! Why would yawning…

The Light

The light was so bright I could hardly see,

But the brighter it got the closer it came to me.

I toiled and dispared, I cried and tried to repair,

The life that there was and was no longer there.

I reached and I fought, I crawled and I ran,

But wherever I turned there was nobody there.

Suddenly I found a person who had been there,

Who had been in the dirt, the toil and dispair.

She said "walk on the sand and accept what is…

New to this site, ready to connect, express and be successful!

I just signed up! I am a mother that works full time, married, but still struggling to get by. I am taking a leap of faith and starting a new venture. I am NO sales person, so this will either make or break me. I have a lot of friends that started using and selling a new weightloss/health product. I have seen it work, they are 100% behind it and no one sells it in my state. It hasn't even spread across the country yet! I decided I am just going to go for it and give it a whirl. After all, if…

Over the years, through various outlets, I have come to learn and develop my passion for empowering women to live their best life FEARLESSLY!.

Moms Groups - Round 2...or We Get By With a Little Help From Our Friends

Remember Moms and Tots groups? These playgroups provided many women - including me - with a treasured support of like-minded sister-moms who became woven into the tapestry of our lives.

I was so very lucky to have Kathy, Tracy, Jean, Lisa, Mary, Diana and Justine; all of whom lived within sugar-borrowing proximity. We met weekly, presumably for the kids. However, I know that a huge part of our playgroup was for the moms. We threw baby showers, sang happy…

From Bridesmaids to Bottles

It's amazing how your life can change so drastically in just a few years.

For over 20 years I was a professional stand-up comedian working the road and staying out late. And since 2001 I've also been running my business, Bride's Night Out, Inc. -- a bachelorette party planning company based on my stand-up act with a Party Consultant direct sales program.

Like every project I undertake, I pour myself into getting everything just right. And I love the energy I…

Motherhood and the CV Gap: How to bridge the gap in your resume

One of the most frequently asked questions that I am ever asked, both as a recruiter and as a career coach, is about handling gaps in a CV caused by taking time out to raise a family.

Response: there is no one magic wand answer. Or at least not one that I can think of.

Starting and raising a family is one of the greatest challenges of not just being a woman, but being a woman in the work place. We all handle it differently. There is no right or wrong…

Mamas' Words of Wisdom

Bed rest sucks! No doubt about it. But I am constantly amazed and

humbled at how mamas on bed rest stay focused, stay positive and stay

supportive of one another. I am honored that I get to work with and

support such incredible women. The beauty that I have seen is that

women on bed rest, after the initial shock and anxiety, really pull it

together and make it through. At the same time they support one

another, encourage one another and are invaluable resources for… Continue

“O” or Oh no! The effect of bed rest on sex

During pregnancy intercourse, and more particularly orgasm, can be the most intense a woman has ever experienced. Because of the increase in blood supply during pregnancy, a woman’s perineum and sexual organs are all engorged (filled to the brim) with blood and this engorgement results in heightened sensitivity. Many women report that some of the best sex they’ve ever had was while they were pregnant. And while many may worry about the effects on the growing baby, you’ll be…
