    Ann Kirsten has been a writer since kindergarten. Married, with three adult “kids” and two adorable grandkids, she has a lot to write about.

She also believes that chocolate should be consumed daily and tiaras should be worn at all possible times.

 

What does Easter look like for you?

What do your holidays look like? Have you mastered the happy medium between driving-yourself-crazy and doing-absolutely-nothing? Do you have more ideas pinned on Pinterest than you could ever hope to accomplish? Or, do you make reservations at a local restaurant and call it good? Read more...

Thelma

We’ve all heard the mother-in-law jokes. They’ve been a mainstay in comics’ routines for decades. Young wives would also write into “Dear Abby” complaining about their mothers-in-law who bossed them around and made them feel inferior. Read more...

A Visit with Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey came in third place during the 2008 season of American Idol. His voice was (and is) amazing, but it was his story that touched the audience.
