1 Woman, 7 Jobs: Keeping Your Identity in a Do-It-All World

 

Woman PondersClarksville, TN – I do a lot of stuff. I am a wife, a mother of 2 (fantastic boys!), a student, a business owner/manager, a writer, a jail mentoring coordinator, a volunteer church leader, and budding lover of fitness (I didn’t count that last one as a job, by the way).

Now I’m not bragging. That would be foolish. Most people think I am crazy to do so much, and I wouldn’t be ashamed to agree with them. But quantity is not what I aim to talk about; quality is.

Here’s the issue: Expectations vary. Confusion ensues. Insecurities compound. A very wise man once said, “It’s not easy being green.” I say, it’s easier to be green, than it is to be me sometimes. Green is green, all the time. «Read the rest of this article»

Book Review: “Grace Among the Leavings” by Beverly Fisher

 

Clarksville Book ReviewClarksville, TN – “Ms. Grace, you ask hard questions.”

The little girl living on a farm in rural Sumner County, Tennessee does ask hard questions.  Innocent and inquisitive, Grace lives in a world where the Civil War has just ended and the devastated South is entering Reconstruction.  Grace directly questions why she is surrounded by death and suffering.

Her grandmother tells Grace, “I want you to not think of the evil in this world, honey, because there is plenty of that. You don’t have to look too hard or far for that.  Look for the good.  Be the good.”
