Reviewing Finding Me by Michele Knight

 I just finished reading Michele Knight's book , Finding Me, about her survival from 11 years of rape and torture in captivity. Her voice is very direct and clear. She descibes her abuse but leaves some things private, which I applaud her for doing.  She lets us know some of how she struggled and survived. Her abuse was horrendous beyond imagining.

How Disney's movie Frozen Can Help Promote Mental Health Awareness

Disney’s newly beloved movie, Frozen is one of the best Disney movies I have seen. It’s right up there with the classics such as The Little Mermaid and The Beauty and The Beast. You all know the tale, as I’m assuming you’ve watched the movie already since it’s already won Best Song “Let It Go” and with the world knowing Kristen Bell has some serious vocal chords (total girl crush over here!) that can stand next to Idina Menzel (I mean, Adele Dazeem.)...more
