  We ALL face loneliness in this life. Whether you are an 8 year old girl in a neighborhood with very few children (like our daughter), or a middle school student anxious to find a group of friends, or the “new student” in your high school, or going away to college and not knowing anyone, […]

Our daughter and I watched a show with a cat behaviorist, Jackson Galaxy, together last week. The cat owner was a famous young woman who often tweeted about her cat and used some dreadful names for him in her tweets. Galaxy said something so profound: Words have power.

This week, on my blog http://www.peacefulwife.com, we are examining a topic that is VERY difficult for many wives – giving space to their husbands. I think that is pretty counterintuitive to a lot of us as women, because many of us get married because we DON’T want to have space. We want constant emotional/spiritual/verbal connection. […]

But, it makes […]
