Namaah by Jami Amerine

Consider This: Namaah, the Wife of Noah

Consider This: Namaah, the Wife of Noah Namaah woke with a startle. It took only seconds to reconnect with her dolorous existence. In a breath, the familiar companion of nausea ran circles around her. She would have vomited, again, but there was nothing left to purge. Her throat burned from the last episode. She squeezed her eyes shut, desperate to stabilize herself. With her eyes closed, her nose was forced to stimulate. The putrid stench of her atmosphere was magnified. …

Intimacy: Infidelitly, Infertility, & Grief with Melissa Radke

Y’all. I am still so giddy from this conversation with Melissa Radke. Melissa Radke and I have quite a bit in common.  But it wasn’t until I listened to her bestselling book, Eat Cake and Be Brave, that I knew… I just had to have her on the podcast.  We both live in Texas and we both got hit by a big storm.  There were a few glitches, luckily just on my end.  Melissa is loud and clear and well, …

The Mom Car: Where Coolness and Life Collide

The Mom Car:  Where Coolness and Life Collide Remember, remember the deep unquenchable need, the need for speed?  Truthfully, there was only .000005% of the population of teenage girls that were granted that most coveted of wishes, a pink Camaro with vanity plates, secretly staged in the driveway. We imagined a big red bow, for the overly exaggerated birthday that would, somehow, magically enlarge our breasts and give us a little plastic card that simply said, “you can drive now.” …

Jesus be all over you

Jesus Be All Over You, and You Too

The first time I said, “Jesus be all over you,” in public, I think I was on a Facebook live. Actually, I have said it to my kids for years. And my mom always said, “Lord be with you.” Truth be told, I always answered back, “Thanks.” And my family answers back the same, “Thanks.” I guess it is only polite to acknowledge a blessing on your way out the door with a “thank you.” But today as Justin, my …
