Some children are very calm, cool and collected. Every two-year-old has their tantrums, but some kids are less concerned about getting their way. Casual children are laidback and tend to go with the flow. It may seem, at times, that they simply don’t care but in reality, the Natural Clothing Personality has a gift for … Continue reading Do You Have a Laid-back, Casual Kid?
Every child wants to be loved. Little girls long to be seen and heard and to belong to something greater than themselves. We need to know we are valued. Boys do, too. They need adventure and challenge. They long to be strong and courageous and to be needed. Yet we all have image issues at … Continue reading The Secret to Confidence: Understanding Yourself
This could be a story about you. Perhaps your losing your hair, have a major skin problem, are cross-eyed or confined to a wheelchair.

After more than three decades in cosmetology, I’ve learned a few “tricks of the trade” but my makeovers, and the confidence they seemed to offer, wear off. Supreme MakeOvers don’t. Don’t we all want to be beautiful? Yet very few women feel they are. In fact, I’d dare say that we all wish we could … Continue reading What is a Supreme MakeOver?
It’s the life-lessons that we struggle with the most that hold the deepest meaning–and make us most qualified to teach.

The Covid-19 stay-at-home-order has put us all in casual dress mode. I can’t remember the last time I dressed up–even our Easter photo opt. proved to be casual (at least from the waist down!). My daughter didn’t even have dress shoes since she left college during her spring break, unprepared to come home for the … Continue reading The Most Common Question
“Favor is deceitful, beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31:30 As a young church girl, I thought this scripture meant that it was wrong to be beautiful, that I shouldn’t want the favor of anyone, and that I should be afraid of God. Wow was I off! Many other … Continue reading Favor is Deceitful and Beauty is Vain
There is a secret battle that wages in every human heart. Secret because we don’t want to talk about it. And secret because the silence makes us feel so alone in the fight. But we are not alone!
