My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Why Do You Blog?

Cris asks, "Why do you Blog?"

  • I have a website, but I like the ability to express myself instantly and spontaneously. With the website I need to send it to the web editor. Not only did I have to write it, but I had to explain how to lay it out. I also wanted to be more personal and passionate about my subjects than the practice website accommodates for (and I can do this without additional business cost).
  • I wanted to let everyone know I have a new book and make announcements about related activities.
  • Creating a blog gave me something constructive to do while waiting what seemed likes month for the printer to get the book set.
  • I like writing daily. I like sharing what I am learning. A blog keeps my creativity and grammar sharp.
  • A more efficient way to keep up with friends and family. Ironically, I have made new relationships. I don't know that the blog influenced existing friendships and daily contacts much. I need a lot of socialization and interaction. A blog allows me to get that interaction when I have small chunks of time. It will be "here" for you without clogging your inbox whenever you have a chance to visit and read and what's on my mind.
  • I found a blog to keep me very accountable. I have high standards and I achieve a lot by setting goals, writing about them and finding resources and wisdom amongst other bloggers. I feel in control of some of my more difficult goals.
  • Now that I have an established blog, I like that I can refer clientele to it for further information or reinforcement.
  • A sequel to Permission to Mother may unfold from amongst all my blog posts.

I enjoy my blog and plan to keep it up!
