Is This Thing On? Next Week, on SisterWives…

Addicts. Enablers. Toxic relationships. Labels can sometimes make us forget that there are people behind them, and that there are two sides to every story. Sometimes those stories fit together perfectly. Join us next week.             Advertisements

Getting you back to YOU

We’ve had a spate of posts lately where there has been discussion about the best way to go about life, or the best way to be. There has been huge encouragement both in the writing and in the Sisterwives community – our readers and supporters have demonstrated that ‘together we’re stronger’, and to observe the […]

Castles in the air

Did you ever read a piece which resonated so deeply you felt your soul begin to resonate, shivering at the edges as though a bell had been struck in the midst of silence. Have you ever sat as the words flow into your mind, create neural pathways of new thoughts, like trees growing at high […]

You Told Me Not to Tell

In the wake of a news week where we hear yet another story of abuse and violence in the form of molestation against young girls, words were written that stopped a whole lot of people in their tracks. A friend and fellow blogger wrote a post that brought people to their feet, asking us to shout with our […]

Is This Thing On? Next week on Sisterwives

The current culture dive-bombing The waters of your mind A media hall of mirrors Leaves you rough and undefined “You’re never, ever good enough” – The message oft opined What peace from this damnation Could you ever hope to find? The casualty of your own life is…you? Two writers next week – one brand new, […]

Time…..See What’s Become of Me….

Monday, Michelle responded to a letter from a lovely young woman named Sarah who was looking for guidance. That post turned into a much-needed reminder of why we are here. Then, we wondered – what if we could do the same for our twenty-three year old selves? What would we change? What advice would we give? We decided to […]

Can I Avoid Disaster?

It is too easy to get caught up in the process, sometimes, of what we do. We forget why we started in the first place. This letter, from Sarah, arrived for us one day, and we all wondered what we might have to say to someone who was so earnestly seeking advice. Quite a bit, […]

Is This Thing on? Next Week on SisterWives …

“When you’re older, you’ll understand.” Well. We’re older. Some of us more than others. We weren’t told that there would be a quiz. But there was – in the form of an unexpected letter from 23 year-old Sarah, asking us if we had advice on how to be “beautiful, strong, and kind,” and also – […]

The Picture is Only Perfect in Her Head

I could tell you today’s post was written by a woman named Sharon. Or I could tell you her name is Veronica. It doesn’t matter because her identity is an alias so she can write free and not suffer what would no doubt be undesirable consequences. You will read her story and know she’s a […]

The Phone Call

The Sister Wives struggled with the decision to make this piece anonymous, but ultimately decided is was more important to protect the identity and integrity of family members. The fact remains, this could be written by any one of us because mental illness hits from every direction, scattering its pellets of suffering among families and […]

The Man(di) Cave

It’s not every day that we get to have three men on our blog at the same time. Actually, it’s not every day, it’s once a month, and this month, I’m happy to introduce you (as if you don’t already know them) to three of our favorite guys here at SisterWives. You’ve most likely seen […]

More Than Meets the Eye

I can’t tell you how excited I am about our guest today. It’s her first time on any blog, so please be kind to her. Instead of a traditional introduction, I’ll let her take the stage herself, so without further ado … please help me welcome our guest writer today, and be sure and give […]

Is This Thing on? Next Week on SisterWives …

Next week I’m in charge! Uh oh. There might be trouble. There might be laughs. There will probably be men, and most definitely, you’re not going to want to miss it. On Monday, I have something special to share with you, something very close to my heart. Then on Thursday, three new men (that’s right: […]
