Trusting Ourselves and Our Audience

I want to talk about something called trust. Not the usual kind though, I want to talk about trusting ourselves, our content, and our audience. Trust is often hard to come by as many of us deal with instances in our lives where trust can and does become an issue. Perhaps we're let down one …

Making this House a Home

Do you ever feel like your house isn't your own? That there is still so much to do to get it perfect? That the list of tasks grows as quick as it lessens? As much as I'm not a very "hands-on" kind of person, I've never been crafty, strong, or dexterous with my hands, I'm …
