Teen Alcoholism

Written by Yolanda F.
When I was a kid, my parents had what might be considered a European approach to alcohol when it came to raising my brother and me. In other words, they didn’t make it the forbidden fruit. Looking back on it, I thought it was smart and proceeded to do the same with my kids because it worked for me. By the time I was of legal drinking age, I didn’t treat drinking like a hobby, unlike so many of my peers. I was allowed to sip wine with dinner and…

A Bird’s Eye View

Written by Lori R.
When I was 14, I took a vacation with my Dad and step-Mom to Marco Island, FL. I will never forget swimming with dolphins, sightseeing and sunbathing for that week. But I also had an experience that made a profound impact on me that I still think about often. Heights terrified me as a child. It was so out of character for me to ask my Dad to allow me to go parasailing. And I’m shocked that my conservative, doomsday-prepping father allowed me to do it! Once I had approval,…

Leek and Asparagus Strudel

Written by Yolanda F.
Strudel doesn’t need apples to make a splash. This take on strudel, for instance, is a burst of springtime flavor. The filling is savory rather than sweet, with vegetables and cheese enveloped by delicate, flaky pastry, which makes the perfect addition to breakfast, brunch or any buffet table. Not only is it delicious, but it’s packed with nutrients thanks to the asparagus, which is a good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, and chromium, a trace mineral that helps insulin transport glucose from the bloodstream into…

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Written by Yolanda F.
It’s terrible to think that a divine act of love can be contorted into an act of violence by changing its intention. Unfortunately, it’s a fact of life. If you have ever been a victim of such a crime committed by either a stranger or someone who has professed to care about you, you may be aware that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). SAAM officially began in 2001, but was years in the making. In the late 1980s, the National Coalition Against Sexual Assault began promoting awareness by…

Out on a Limb

Written by Yolanda F.
Imagine being born without arms and legs. Do you think it could lead to depression? How about anxiety? Do you think you’d have a remarkable sense of humor? I’m not so sure I would. I actually never gave it a thought until I saw a video of Nick Vujicic, a motivational speaker, who has needed little more than his head, torso and a great big positive attitude to make a splash on humankind. For this, among other things, I am grateful for because I may never have gotten…

Self-Care: Honey Lavender Lip Scrub

Written by Yolanda F.
There is so much yummy goodness and healing aspects of this lip scrub it makes you wonder if a lip scrub should taste so good you want to eat it. But who wants to smear something on your lips that tastes like medicine or is loaded with toxic chemicals? Not I! I say skip the petroleum products and try this recipe using local raw honey, which is great if you have allergies. The scent of lavender has many benefits in addition to what your nose has to say about it.…

Vitamin D

Written by Lori R.
An elderly woman, who had a near death experience, once told me that the cure for every human ailment on the earth exists naturally on the earth. This statement came to mind today as I was reading about Vitamin D. There must be 4 or 5 random combinations of multivitamins in my cabinet at home but I always forget to take them. Perhaps I should search the cabinet for Vitamin D and be more diligent! We’ve always heard that we need the Vitamin D provided by sunlight to promote calcium…
