I was working in my office with the TV on this past Friday when I heard an anchor passionately raising her voice. It turned out the all-women panel was discussing actress Candace Cameron Bure’s recent comments on HuffPost Live about her decision to live out biblical submission in her 17-year marriage to NHL hockey player […]

Can Laid Back Men Lead?

| December 30, 2013

I got married as I was completing my doctorate in clinical psychology. I was one driven, serious woman on a mission to save the world. My husband, Mike, on the other hand, was far more laid-back.
