In response to the speculation that becoming a grandmother could deter Hillary Clinton from running, Stewart said, “For god sakes, Mitt Romney has a litter of grandchildren…the guy added 3 grandchildren while campaigning…my point is he got crushed in the election by someone with no grandchildren, yet somehow the grandchild factor never came up in the race between Obama and Romney.”  → Read More
The 3 Best Reasons to Make Yourself a Priority
At one point in my life, I was a full-time college administrator, a full-time student pursuing a Ph.D., a wife, a mother of two small children, a church member, a community volunteer, a member of five boards—and oh yes—I was also running a part-time consulting practice.

There are three pictures on my cell phone from April 15th 2013 that show the order in which things happened. Photo one is mid-way through the marathon— Allie (my daughter) running, joyous and free.
