Is Your Love Big Enough? The Syrian Refugee Crisis

Photo Credit – Freedom House We at the Sisterwives have had the Syrian refugees on our hearts very much this week. The opinion war waging in our country has weighed on us and has prompted a number of us to speak out. In light of this, we decided to link those posts together here. We […]

Fear and Loathing in the Man(di) Cave

Happy October. Since cobwebs fill the corners of our homes and scary dolls habitat our kitchen windows, we decided it might be best to add a little bit of a fear factor to the Man(di) Cave this month. We’ve asked three men some very dark and twisted questions, and they obliged by offering some even […]

Straddling Jesus – The Sisterwives Do Dallas

You know those experiences that you look forward to and create such enormous expectations of,┬áthat the actual event doesn’t stand a chance? The Sisterwives meet up was NOT one of those. It began when Lizzi, our beautiful Brit, hatched her plan to travel to ‘Murica and meet dozens of beloved online friends. We formed a […]

Getting To Know Her

The SisterWives have had something huge happen. We’ve expanded. We’ve added to our crazy little family. Chrissy of QuirkyChrissy has agreed to join the love fest that is being a SisterWife. Some of you may have seen her gorgeous yoga pics on Instagram that make some of us a tiny bit envious of her flexibility. […]

IS THIS THING ON? Next week on Sisterwives

*taps mic and finds it utterly dead* *blows into it, says “Testing, 1, 2, 3…” and hopes that mic magically works* *catches foot in wire, nearly falls down, and realises mic was never plugged in*   *plugs in mic, switches on, and continues as though nothing happened*   SO…last week we had a look at […]

Is This Thing On? Next Week On the SisterWives

We will be pushing boundaries and pushing buttons next week on the SisterWives. Sexual exploration and experimentation, religious guilt, the purity movement. No holding back. No holds barred. Hang on, it might get bumpy…

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Compassion and racism – a #1000Speak post

Sometimes you have the good fortune to make a friend who isn’t afraid to hold strong, valid opinions, and voice them. Frequently; Out There and Unapologetically. It is inspiring to see someone who is absolutely determined that people should think aright, and who is willing to run the risk of ending up in confrontation with […]

IS THIS THING ON? Next week on The Sisterwives

    When I was reminded that it’s my turn to have charge of the Sisterwives blog next week, my eyes lit up with glee (eventually, once I realised the serendipity of the timing) because next week I’m going to be diving back into the world of 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion. March 20th marks […]

Everything Does NOT Happen For a Reason

“Everything happens for a reason.” Bullshit. “It was all part of the plan. His plan. God’s plan.” Bullshit. I know. It’s what people say. They just want to help, to make you feel better, to make it easier, to try to justify…injustice. “Only the good die young.” Truth. “Gone too soon.” Truth. “Life is short.” […]

A Letter to My Sister’s Murderer

Before the Sisterwives came about, I was unaware of the beauty which is Kim Sisto Robinson. But when I started reading her words, I was absolutely floored. More than anyone I’d read previously, I could relate to her writing. I too know the pain of a sister’s murder and I felt a kinship with her […]

Gracias, Danke, Merci, Grazie, Thank You

This place began with a group of women who found each other online and enjoyed sharing little quips throughout the day, most of which involved boobs and #DickPunchThursday. Eventually though, the quips grew into conversations, which grew into friendships. One of us suggested we start a blog, that our little secret world of support should […]
