I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Spiritual Quote: On Making Decisions

The possibilities we consider when we make decisions come from God. God orders these possibilities, urging us, or to use more process language, luring or persuading us, to choose those options that lead to a vision of the common good. (54, Monica A. Coleman, Making a Way Out of No Way)

I really want to learn more about process theology. The next book I order from paperbackswap.com is going to be by Alfred North Whitehead, who was a leading process theologian heavily referenced in Coleman's book. (So order one of my books!) Making a Way Out of No Way inspired me to read Octavia E. Butler and she turned out to be my new favorite science fiction writer, so I figure I cannot go wrong with investigating another author mentioned in the book.

  1. I don't really read science fiction, but Octavia Butler is really good!
