All wives Are Warriors

Yep, all wives. We are designed to e warriors, alongside our husbands. Remember that crazy verse in Genesis? “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18 A suitable helper? Seriously? In the garden, charged with caring for and having dominion over… everything? A […]


Another Role Emerges

Business owner/operator. It’s in the very early planning stages, but our new kombucha brewery and tea house is coming to life in my head. The name “Bella” has captured my imagination. Italian for “beautiful,” it was perfect for our new chihuahua puppy. And now it is perfect for a company name, featuring our adorable Bella […]


Friday Readers’ Grab-bag

Happy Friday! This post is a bit premature, but I’m setting it and sending it anyway. I’m kind of weird like that. It’s in my head and I want it out to make room for more stuff. Moving forward, as I earn my way into more inboxes and create ever more useful content and products […]


Center-punched Sideways Again!

How do I keep getting knocked so far off track that I’m not even sure I’m still on the same internet as my readers? By now, I’m sure my readers recognize the signs and the pattern. Yep, when I step away and get quiet, it means that I’m questioning (again?!) my purpose, mission, goals, and […]


2016 CDF: Warrior-Strong

Several years ago, one of the books or blogs I was reading about feminine identity discussed the use of military language in success and business literature. It identified the terms as appealing more to men, of being “masculine” in nature. It suggested that the use of words like “battle,” “strategy,” “weapons,” along with a focus […]


Scattered Focus = Weakness

Sorry, this is a day late, but I’m getting back on track… slowly… Lately, it seems like all of the tasks completed and the goals set take far longer to finish than the time allotted for them. But it’s not a new phenomenon in my life. While people close to me accuse me of procrastination, […]


The Strong Minds Mission

I was talking with one of my amazing stepdaughters a while back and, as usual, she said something that lodged in my brain permanently. She is an incredible, strong, talented and inspirational songwriter and performer, who said, “I work hard every day to be the very best version of “me” that I can be. I […]


Summer Distractions

When the idea struck me for this post, it was loaded with the intention of writing about strategies for dealing with distractions. And now 5 days have gone by in which I’ve gotten nearly ZERO writing done, proving beyond a doubt that I don’t have any effective strategies for beating distractions. Then this morning on […]


17,200 Days and Counting

That’s how many days I’ve been alive. How many days have you lived so far? Go to www.therobertd.com and use the calculator on the home page to find out. Go ahead! I’ll play a game of Freecell while I’m waiting… Oh good, you’re back! You probably noticed Robert D’s book while you were visiting the website, […]


Creating Routines

What an oxymoron the title of today’s post is! As an obsessively creative person who gets bored easily, routine is the last thing I want to create. Or use. Or even think about! But without a minimal amount of routine in my life, everything becomes unmanageable. So, what to do? Establish routines that meet 2 […]
