Washington Kids Need Your Help!

Posted May 6, 2015 by Lauren Hipp

My son is on a 2 year wait list for childcare that meets my family's needs, but he can't wait -- little minds like his are growing at the fastest rate and these first few years of life are critical in building a foundation for success in school and life. Kids and families like mine [...]

4 Ways to Protect Your Family from Illness

Posted May 5, 2015 by Anya Vanecek

Food should be safe; that ought to go without saying. Yet, the recent string of food-related illness outbreaks has made it clear that you can’t take food safety for granted.    Blue Bell ice cream, Sabra Hummus, Trader Joe's chicken sausage... the list goes on. The worst thing, in my mind, is that I had to [...]

National Teacher Week: Women and the Teaching Brain

Posted May 5, 2015 by Vanessa Rodriguez

In celebration of National Teacher Week I’d like to talk about the many women in teaching.  It is of no surprise that teaching is a female dominated profession.  Back in September the New York Times published an article “Why don’t more men go into teaching?” citing that more than 75% of all teachers K-12 are [...]

Are you over-managing your life?

Posted May 5, 2015 by Renee Trudeau

"Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on." ― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose A few year ago, I led a telecourse on how to let go and go with the flow (available for download now). I was motivated to facilitate this [...]

All members of the U.S. Senate actually agreed on something... and that something was the fact that pregnant workers shouldn't be discriminated against.* You’re unstoppable! In the [...]

A Dangerous Trend: North Carolina Considers Weaker Gun Lawss

Posted May 4, 2015 by Anon

Growing evidence is proving what seems self-evident: Regulation of firearms saves lives. Stated another way, it’s becoming increasingly clear that looser gun regulations are associated with gun-related injuries and death. Unfortunately, some states--like my beloved state of North Carolina—are moving in a more dangerous direction each year. For the third year in a row, a [...]

Why I unplugged on my busiest day ever

Posted May 4, 2015 by Renee Trudeau

Last Monday morning I returned to mountains of work having been off for a week with my family for spring break (when we go on vacation we generally go "off the grid"). In addition to hundreds of emails, phone messages and requests for my time, I received several big, timely work opportunities for consideration. By Tuesday [...]

7 reasons to choose love over fear

Posted May 4, 2015 by Renee Trudeau

After a sweet early morning Easter meditation yesterday, I left my husband asleep and headed downstairs to see my 13 year-old. Reading on the couch in his pajamas, he looked up and begged me for raspberries and blueberry waffles for breakfast. I was feeling loving and had the time and bandwidth for this, so I said, [...]
