Ladies: Don’t Make This Hair Removal Mistake

By | Endometriosis, Health, Rebecca's POV | No Comments

I made this hair removal mistake for years. I’m speaking up about this personal issue, in the hopes that it helps you or a woman you care about. Starting in my early 20s, I began sprouting dark facial hairs. And, being that I have fair skin and dark hair, they were pretty noticeable. It didn’t seem normal — but wasn’t alarming, either.

One of the most sobering moments was…

Not Sure What to Write About? (Mark Twain’s Answer)

By | Devotionals for Writers, Encouragement, Rebecca's POV | No Comments
I confess I've been going through a bit of what the marketing world would consider a "brand-identity crisis." The past four years, in particular, have been a bit disorienting. Especially when I decided to start freelance writing for income, amidst a difficult seasons of under- or unemployment. I took that to mean I needed this site to start pulling its professional weight. Not just be a place for personal burdens. Less play, more work, as I took...
