E7: Drawing and Photography as Therapy With Dr. Ayomide Adebayo, Part 3 of 3

Still with Dr. Ayomide Adebayo, they pick up from where they left off in this third part of their special series by discussing how drawing and photography allow us to process...

E3: Stereotypes, Pivoting, Healthy Discussions, and More With Casey Li, Part 2 of 3

We live in a society where changing direction in the face of insurmountable odds is seen as quitting or being a failure. But when you come to think about it, isn’t that a smart move?

As Casey Juanxi Li says, “There is no point in beating your head against a wall or going up the path of most resistance.” Continuing with this conversation, Samantha Postman...

Right? If this was true, I would be dead a million times over. I am one of the most curious people you will ever encounter. As a child, my mother had a full-time job trying to cater to my curiosities. Our family was poor, like relying on food & clothing banks and social...

Lessons Learned From Being One of the Children Missing in Montana

The most terrifying experiences are when we are children and when the world is so big to us. For a short time, when I was 8, we lived in the vast countryside of northern Montana, where I was schooled in a one-room schoolhouse. The adults were visiting together in a country building nestled inside a large area with rolling hills. It was midafternoon, and a group of us children explored the countryside. It was glorious, hiking for miles in what we believed was previously uncharted territory. We...

2 Essential Questions to Ask Yourself Before Reacting to Adversity

Self-assessment is the beginning of wise choices. Before regrettably responding in anger, try this method I taught my daughter. May her lesson be ours. When she was 11, I found her vehemently flipping through her Bible to find verses to “aim & fire” at a bus seatmate who had been quite nasty to her. I’d never seen her burn with such vengeful anger before. Normally she is very patient, gentle, easy-going, and sweet. Personally, I’ve been through hell and back with school...
