While the increase and severity of environmental disasters is nearly impossible to deny, there is hope on the horizon. It seems that every insurmountable problem mankind has created is finding a new and innovative solution. All over our planet, efforts are being made to reduce the impact of human activity in fascinating ways. MORE >Speaking about the environment can be heart breaking. So many problems exist, that it can seem pointless to even try to solve them. Yet, all over the world bright minds are coming together, often crossing incredible boundaries of geography, language, and culture, to work to save our Earth.
Addressing painful topics, loss of life, suffering, sickness, tragedy, can be difficult, but reaching those who can effect change the most is critical. I am proud to do my part to recognize the serious issues we face, as well as the myriad ways we can all work to overcome them. Speaking on environmental issues is one way I chip in.
Ask anyone today if truth exists, or if it can be defined, and see how fascinating and edgy the conversation will get in a second. Ironically, we live in a pluralistic post-modern world where truth is subjectively recognized, widely suppressed, and regularly denied. You have probably heard someone tell you "I have my own truth and you have yours” or “all religions are true.” MORE >The problem with these types of statements is that they are opposing and mutually exclusive by nature. If they can't logically be both true, for they are self –defeating, how do we define truth and find out what is the truth?
If I asked you to draw a picture of a table, a tree, or a car, it would be relatively easy for you to do so. What if I asked you to draw something like gravity? What would you draw? Although you are aware that gravity exists, you just don’t know what it looks like since you can’t see it. How then can you draw it? What if I challenged you to sketch a picture of an object that is immaterial, that cannot be observed or seen, does not have any sides, angles, shapes, or any measurements, but you know exists, and is out there somewhere? What would you sketch? MORE >Basically, what I am asking you to do is draw God. Could you do it? It’s far more complex because you know that God exists, but that you just can’t observe or measure him. How can you draw something that you can’t observe, measure, or visualize, but you know exists? What do you do? How can anyone define a being that is outside of every known dimension? We can’t know what or who God is. That’s a fact! What we can do as finite humans is, point out several characteristics about God that He made it possible for us to observe and understand.
As we witness the unprecedented presence of women in positions of prominence, it seems that fifty-one percent of the world's population has come into their own in a very big way. We see women and girls making a stunning impact on our world and our perception of possibility. It is an exciting time to be around these women, to be a part of an explosion of equality and smashing of stereotypes. MORE >This rise of women touches all aspects of our lives, to speak of powerful women and girls is to be a part of a shift the world over. Lysistrata put her foot down in 411 B.C. and Malala Yousafzai put her pen to paper in 2014, between the two moments, a fascinating history has been made. I enjoy speaking on all topics female, including LGBTQ, reproduction, education, aging, body and self-image, marriage, divorce, and singlehood.
