UIO Releases Special Episode on Sex

On Sex and Sexuality

Yes, you read that right. But don’t expect anything out of the ordinary from this podcaster. Episode 8: On Sex and Sexuality is done in a similar style as the other podcasts and rightly so. A highly complex and sometimes contentious topic, it is one that can’t be ignored in any relationship.  And as teenagers…

Don’t Worry: Be Happy!

Easier Said Than Done

Great advise, if you ask me. But it is much easier said than done! In my latest Huff Post blog, I explore why worrying incessantly is futile. In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus says: ‘Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own’ (Matt. 6: 34)….

What Really Matters to Teen Girls

UIO: Your Values Inside Out

Reflecting upon my own teenage years, I remember valuing what I wore to school, the condition of my hair and its length, and what car my parents would use to collect me after cheerleader practice.

Holding Hands Today For A Better Tomorrow

I didn’t sleep at all Election night, though I went to bed about 4 a.m. GMT still praying for a miracle for Hillary Clinton. And at 5.22 when I couldn’t help searching out my I-pad in the dark and checking the BBC’s website, I still had this hope. But around 7 a.m. when my I-phone’s…

TAKE A WORLD VIEW: VOTE for Peace and Quiet

Who can keep quiet on this election day, certainly not the candidates. And I certainly cannot.  But speaking out encouragingly and peacefully to friends and family about getting out to vote is not be the only thing you can do to participate in America’s political process.  Though it is important, your vote is equally as…

Paying Tribute to Gloria Naylor: My Muse

A friend sent me a Facebook message asking if I had heard of the death of award winning author Gloria Naylor on September 28, one day before my birthday. I had not. Feeling a bit out of the loop, I went online and met all the condolences head on, reflecting for a good while. After…
