Candida and What It Could Mean For You

Candida is an over-infestation of yeast in the body. It can invade every tissue in the body including the brain, and it grows and lives on what you eat. It makes you crave what it needs to grow, and rampages until you eat it. I call it the awakened dragon that roars until you give it attention by …

It was a beautiful blue-sky, sunny day. As I approached the entryway of Our Lady of Calvary retreat house, a clean, fresh breeze brushed my checks. I slowed down for a second or two to just enjoy the beauty and serenity that surrounded me. As I stepped into the foyer, the aroma of something delicious baking in the …

Part of My Journey

My journey of crawling out from a life of abuse continued with a homework assignment I received. The assignment: to consider what I wanted and to put it on paper.

Where Does It All Start?

Where does it all start? In the womb? The first month? The first year? Perhaps the first time you were dismissed or ignored. Maybe your story begins with the first slap or the first beating.
