They defer only to the words that men intended When the editors of the bible, w … [Read more...]

She facilitates women's circles and is active in Women of Spirit and FaithHow many times have I opened a women’s magazine and read an article about how I should love my body just the way it is, only to flick the page over to another stick thin model with big boobs?  It’s such an obvious contradiction that I hardly notice anymore. It’s just another thing that we put under the title of “Crazy s**t we think is okay”.And how … [Read more...]

I write what I likeLast night I was with a friend of mine who was struggling with a chapter she had been asked to write for a forthcoming book. All day she had been sitting in front of her computer crying. “It actually physically hurt”, she said. We could label this 'writers block' and move on, but as Eckhart Tolle reminds us, to label something is not to understand it, it is simply to label it.I have written all my life, but recently it’s been the last thing I’ve wanted to do. I don’t wa … [Read more...]
