Fathers play a critical role in the healthy development of children and families. This is why it's important to address structural and systemic barriers that prevent Black men from being fully present in their children's lives—so that all families have a chance to thrive.
My wife and I have been married since 2019, but we’ve known each other since we were 14-year-olds. We are raising a blended family. She has a daughter who is 9 and a 7-year-old son. I ha...Read Full Post »

Forgive and forget!
By Betsy Rodríguez MSN, DCES
Many people view forgiveness as an offshoot of love -- a gift given freely to those who have hurt you.
Forgiveness, however, may bring enormous benefits to the person who gives that gift. If you can bring yourself to forgive and forget, you are likely to enjoy lower blood pressure, a stronger immune system, and a drop in the stress hormones circulating in your blood. Back pain, stomach problems, and headaches may disappea...Read Full Post »

Unsettled by issues at work and at home, Matt decided to take a walk. The evening spring air beckoned. As the infinite sky deepened from blue to black, a thickening fog spilled slowly over the marsh. Starts began to glimmer, heralding the full moon rising in the east. The moment, for Matt, was deeply spiritual. He’s there, he thought, God is there, and He’s got this.

Many Americans have lost loved ones to COVID and other diseases this year, many are un or underemployed, some are now homeless, even more are depending ...Read Full Post »

November a Time of Thanksgiving
Guest Writer: Stasea Austin
November is a busy month: National Diabetes Month, Thanksgiving, and even my birthday. So, it was difficult for me to decide what to focus on for this blog.
