Only Human

I type this after I repaired a few broken links on the main Christian Childbirth website — links which have been broken since the debut of the new style several months ago. Cringe-worthy mistakes that make me wonder how I can continue to think I can balancing a PhD program and my hobby websites is […]

Building Community

I cannot share details yet – I don’t have time to make the full plan until spring break – but I will be hosting a training this summer you might find interesting.  It is about helping communities make change. Although I will be sharing this information from the standpoint of making changes in childbirth, the actual uses […]

I attended a conference for school today – working with victims of trauma.  What a powerful message I heard, I couldn’t begin to do justice to it in a blog post.  But the main take-home point is one question: “What happened to you?” A simple question to ask, but not such a simple question to […]
