    Last night I went to Friday night serves at Beit T’Shuvah in Los Angeles. The choir was killing it, and I was with my pal Rachel and her fiancé Luke, whose dad is in town, so it was a good night.  My son opted to stay home as he was preparing for a test and the rest of his weekend... read on

    Meredith Kercher was 21 years old when she was murdered.  As a mother, I find her death especially heartbreaking.  As my son inches towards college, I imagine I will want him to call me everyday and let me know he is safely in his room so I can go to sleep.  Meredith was safely in... read on
