(Author’s note: This was one of my most challenging pieces to write– inspired by a friend whose teen was making decisions about sex. A year later, I mustered the courage to share it with my own teen who to my surprise said, “Mom you have to put this out there” –and so I did, on International Peace Day.)
“The best way to diminish evil in the world is to bring awareness to our shadows.”
“Sex opens the door to heaven–and to hell.”
I fell in love at 15.
