by Erin McNeely This past Sunday the world watched as the talented Lupita Nyong’o accepted an Oscar for her powerful performance as Patsey in ’12 Years a Slave.’ Just days before her win she gave this empowering speech on beauty, adequacy and compassion.

by Christina Stolaas Photo Via See More I am really good at wearing masks. Smiling and replying “I’m great”, when truly, great hasn’t even been in the weeks vocabulary. These days it’s easier then ever to mask what’s going on in our personal lives. We can use social media to carefully draw an illusion with posed and rehearsed smiles; we share the good, hide the ugly,...

by Erin McNeely Photo Via Brand & Coffee If you are anything like me then there are times that God has to teach you the same lesson not once, not twice, but again and again. (And again and again and again.) Lately, it’s been the all too familiar lesson about His Grace and how my human nature tries so hard to earn it rather than...

by Mandy den Dekker Photo Via Brand & Coffee Nowadays there are A LOT of things that ‘define us’. We’re sisters, daughters, mothers, friends, lovers. In this world we’re also defined, by ourselves and by others, by the things that we do and like. We’re artists, doctors, social workers, accountants. We’re kind, funny, social. We define ourselves. Everybody does. Not all in the same way, but...

In our hurried lives we crave disposable items as we move through life “on the go” day to day at an increased pace. Passionate voices behind the recycle and reuse movements have presented catchy campaigns, hard data, and persuasive reasons for us...

By Allie Marie Smith As girls we love attention from guys. But we have to be careful not to let the wrong guy in. Remember, just because a guy is into you it doesn’t mean he’s good for you. It’s a basic truth, but one that’s easy to forget when our emotions get the best of us. Have you ever forgotten this simple, important truth?

by Coleen York Image Via Of Hearth and Home When something is wrong I have the tendency to keep to myself. I hole up in my room, close the door, and create my very own personal pain closet.

by Brianna Deutsch Image Via Grace Adams Love has never been an easy concept for me. I’ve wrestled with that fact that love doesn’t have to be earned like a prized trophy, instead I can just rest in it’s warm embrace. Throughout my life I’ve played various roles hoping that it would evoke a sense of approval from others, while all it did was push them away. Yet throughout...

by Erin McNeely Sometimes the world we live in can get a bit overwhelming, can’t it? We balance careers, homemaking and never-ending to-do lists. We’re students, mothers, daughters, sisters, girlfriends, wives and friends. We’re busy. And let’s be honest, as women we maybe tend to say, “yes” maybe a little more often then we should. We try to do it all. A coffee date in...
