I grew up in the midwest in the midst of the great bible belt and submerged within the thicket of Christianity. While I see many great things that can be used when it comes to raising children I began to question many aspects and while seeking later on in my adult life begun to understand the authentic self and the idea of unconditional love. I am currently practicing mindfulness in attempts to break old thinking habits and fully embrace who I am. I am currently living in Chicago and trying to adapt to the new environment and way of life here. For me the change has been drastic in comparison to my home town of Wichita Kansas. If anything I am learning to be more patient and embrace all aspect of this new environment.
