Women to Watch AZ – Lori DiGuardi

The Business of Truth

I was introduced to Lori DiGuardi at this time last year and knew right away she was a woman of substance, love and inspiration.  We met on New Year’s Eve at my friend Linda Joy’s celebration on the last day of 2017 and I was excited to learn of her new book soon to be published.

The first event we all participated in was the Woman’s March Tucson, a very exciting time of strength and momentum with 5,000 people marching through the historic downtown with high positive energy. We gathered and raised our voices in unison above the turmoil and chaos soon to manifest in the year of firestorms beyond our knowing at the time.

As soon as I held Lori’s new book in my hands this year on New Year’s Eve 2018,  I was ready to read her story of a spiraling upward journey to knowing her truth. The reality of a real yellow brick road and hero’s alchemy titled “Anger 101: The Healthy Approach to Being a Bitch”. The timing could not be more perfect.

“Join me in celebrating the inner truth of anger together.” – Lori DiGuardi

I highly suggest every woman read this book and…

Kase Takes on Theology – Cynthia A. Kase

I am completely inspired by reading the wisdom of the magnificent women I know. Having several blogs and websites is like having different styles of homes in different locals, I can express the variety of themes that excite me.

One of the themes I care about is theology and spirituality. My Doctor of Divinity degree is inspired by my long family history of Episcopalian and Lutheran ministry and how the study of the Unitarian Universalist Church Faith aligns with my heart.

I met Cynthia at a Tucson Women’s Blogger gatherimg and felt her strong, heartfelt need to express her expertise in understanding why spiritual history is important.

“We create spirituality and community beyond boundaries, working for more justice and more love in our own lives and in the world. Unitarian Universalism affirms and promotes seven Principles, grounded in the humanistic teachings of the world’s religions. Our spirituality is unbounded, drawing from scripture and science, …” uua.org/beliefs

Thanks and Welcome…

This blog is not about the study of theology, or an apologetic, or an explication of dogma. It’s about my life, coming to faith in God, discovering truth, learning lessons. So, by definition, it’s autobiographical, and contains my observation about life and my own ideas about how things are – my “take” on what might be called theology, plus a lot more. {Image: The blogger dressed for New England weather, circa 1955.}

Remembering Mom – Pam Varner

When I met Pam, I was inspired by her “lets get it done” attitude towards finding her passion. Since we met she has blossomed into an amazing businesswoman, taking charge of her life and meeting new people everywhere by helping them create their dreams while growing hers and supporting her family.

Read how her Mom inspired her…

I have vivid memories of my mom at the sewing machine when I was a child. I watched in awe as she turned pieces of fabric into clothes for my sister and I. She studied fashion design at The Art Institute of Chicago where she learned to draft her own patterns and produce clothing that looked store bought. My sister was taking Home EC and from my view was on her way to fashion freedom. I desperately wanted to learn too. I begged my mom to teach me to sew and eventually she relented.

My mother had many talents; teaching was not one of them. A combined lack of talent and patience led to frustration on steroids. The blue overall pants, I so desperately wanted to sew myself,  were constructed beautifully by her. I hated wearing those pants; a symbol of my failure.

I never lost my desire to learn and eventually…
