That Damn Girl Stuff:

     A Mother's Truth

Determined to give her daughter tools necessary to reduce the risk of saying #MeToo, Strawder shares her series of "Sex Talks" with her daughter. In That Damn Girl Stuff: A Mother’s Truth, Strawder goes beyond "birds and bees" to surprisingly revealing truths about herself, including one truth she never told.


The sex talk. It has to be one of the hardest conversations a parent could have with a child. No parent, even the most liberal, wants to imagine their baby one day having sex. Likewise, no child wants the image of how they were created etched in their brain. How is it that something so beautiful and pleasurable can be so taboo?


This book goes beyond the mechanics and gets to the heart of the matter. 

Morgan Mischief:

     @ the end of the day

I don’t remember how I got the name Mischief but here it is. I’m a 10-year old girl with a dog, no siblings, and all my first cousins live in another city or state. My parents have their own business, so even when they’re working.


It’s not that I mean to get into trouble, it just seems to find me. Maybe that’s why my parents call me mischievous. I say I’m just having fun. I don’t think it’s my fault that stuff happens when I least expect it. Believe it or not, I’m trying to stay out of trouble.


I hate being bored and somehow this time it ended up with me having an intruder in my room, a foggy cruise and of course it wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t get lost int he woods. 

Finding Life Balance

Too often we go through life unbalanced and agitated because we can't figure out what to fix or how to fix it. We think there is something wrong with us that isn't wrong with the rest of the world. The truth is if we can somehow stumble into an unbalanced life, that means we can purposefully work to balance our life.

This guide and workbook focus on 7 life areas to help with balance. This is not a one time fix but a lifestyle because we can so easily slide back into unbalance again.

The key areas we will look at are:

  • Social & Family Relationships

  • Career & Educational Aspirations

  • Money & Personal Finances

  • Physical Health, Recreation & Leisure

  • Life's Routine Responsibilities

  • Giving Back to Society & Contribution

  • Mental, Emotional & Inner Well-being
