By Renee Williams   For decades, children have been dressing up as superheroes. Our children find comfort, even hope, in superheroes. Recently, Wonder Woman earned $600 million at the box office worldwide and after 75 years of heroics (aside from her lasso of truth, bullet proof bracelets and boomerang tiara) Wonder Woman’s true superhero power is her ability to inspire. Another part of Wonder Woman’s success story is the common narrative of “the hero’s journey,” a story that has been told in a thousand different ways with a thousand different faces. It is the story of Star Wars, The...

By Renee Williams   Traveling is fun! Although our family has some travel tales of woe to tell like Third Degree Sunburns, Four Flight Delays in Denver and the hilarious Grandma is a Beach tale (Happy Mother’s Day, Mom), I’ll tell you some of my most precious memories have been traveling with my family, especially with my boys Zakk and Dylan. While I was growing up, we traveled the East coast frequently. A lot of these trips were made in my mom’s 1978 Pontiac Firebird, complete with a CB radio, t-tops and no seat belts. My mom has always...

By Renee Williams   On endings and new beginning: Inaugural editor’s notes are always difficult to write and writing them on the heels of my predecessor, Karin Calloway fuels the difficulty, of course. It is a poignant experience and there is inevitably some sadness involved but there is also a greater sense among us that the change is timely and rewarding.

Editor’s Notes

By Karin Calloway   I got new furniture. This might not seem like much to you, but we were “blessed” (I’m trying to be sweet here) with quite a few hand-me-downs from our families when we married in the ‘80s. This table, that chair, these pictures, etc. Actually, I know that I am supremely blessed to have so many things at our disposal, but I never have been able to make my home “my own” until the past year. Last fall, I passed kidney stone. Yep, not fun. You moms get it because this was like labor contractions, but only...
