My name is Rebekah Chodoff Kuschmider and I’m the brains behind this blog.

I hold a masters degree in arts policy from The Ohio State University and worked for many years in the non-profit sector. My early work was in fundraising, where I did development writing for non-profit arts organizations. Later, I moved into non-profit advocacy, managing Congressional communications and volunteer lobbying events for the federal relations team at The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network.

Since, 2011 I have been a stay-at-home-parent and freelance writer, creating online content for parenting publications, political commentary sites, women’s interest sites, and at my own blog.

    I stumbled, quite literally, upon our blog. I really enjoyed it. I started blogging too, in an attempt to avoid what you said as reason #1. My husband has cancer. Im not even 30 yet. He might die (it is stage IV colon only the 2nd most deadly form of cancer) but I will never stop fighting for him to LIVE. Thanks for allowing me some good reads today. 🙂

    This seems like a pretty nasty blog. You don’t seem like a very nice person. Not sure why I felt a need to tell you, but I found the articles I read disturbing and highly judgmental. I like Mom blogs because they usually spread some sunshine, but yours a dark, cloudy, rainy day.

    Reading your blog all the time. Thanks for posting the notice about the march on DC for sensible gun control.

    Hi, my name is Regg. I’ve read your article POPE FRANCIS ON RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE: DO GOOD, WE WILL MEET ONE ANOTHER THERE. I am a christian. I believe in every word of scripture. I think the Pope has taught error in that homily. I just wish to put the truth in front of you. As far as doing good, I do not wish to argue that point. I too believe that people can do good(charities, feeding the homeless, etc.) but it doesn’t mean that we are good on the inside. I’m assuming that by meet there the pope meant Heaven. The truth is that Heaven is not based on what you have done; it’s based on what you didn’t do. It’s not a matter of how much bad you’ve done or how much good you’ve done. It’s a matter of putting your faith(trust) in Jesus Christ’s death on the cross. In that he accepted your penalty in place of you.

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been working with?
    I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest site and I
    would like to find something more safeguarded.
    Do you have any recommendations?
