Suffering and The Mind/Body Connection in Mental Illness  | Mere Breath

Over the last month or so, I’ve felt debilitatingly sad and overwhelmed. A feeling that was reinforced every time I learned more about Planned Parenthood, saw the orange, hazy smoke outside my window from the fires and every time I visited with my dear (incarcerated) sister online.

Babysteps | Mere Breath

I don’t know how to start into this and I’m not sure if what I am experiencing will bless anyone. God works in mysterious ways. We’ve been really busy. All four of the kids are back in school for the year. They absolutely love it. My boys anxiously await the three days a week they [Read More...]

My Sign

Recently, I watched the videos that The Center for Medical Progress released exposing hard evidence of Planned Parenthood’s questionable ethics and their clear violation of federal law. As a 31-year-old mom to four young children, I cried. The videos were undeniably difficult to view but necessary. This is going on in our cities and towns. When we [Read More...]

Missing a Compassion Component | Mere Breath

Written by AMG I am in my mid-forties and approaching an anniversary date from 25 years ago that turned my life on a completely different trajectory—though few know about it.

My Specimen | Mere Breath

I have two sons. Because I was so sick with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, I had a 14 week ultrasound — at which time, the tech informed me and my husband Ben, that we were having our very first son (third child).
