What a car is and isn’t: Regina Brett

The first car I ever owned was a 1978 Ford Fiesta, a bright orange car that glowed like a jack-o-lantern. I drove it until it was held together by duct tape and gutter seal that my dad applied to keep the back window from falling out. I’m not into luxury. For me, the purpose of a...

My wish for my former dogs: Regina Brett

I have to confess, I have never owned a dog. Growing up, we had dogs but they weren’t pets.  They guarded our home.  They’re names: Chipper, Parseghan, Holmes. They protected us but lived their lives on a length of rope in the driveway and could only dream of a real dog’s...

It’s never too late to soak up summer. There’s still time. Summer is one grand permission slip to be lazy, to count the stars, to study the clouds, to do absolutely nothing but listen to life and be present for the grand show it offers moment by precious moment. Too many of us...

Regina’s 17 Lessons from 17 years of Marriage

Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus are more than victims; they’re powerful women who never gave up.

Last Monday night, I was sitting at a restaurant with friends when my husband checked his cell phone and whispered to me. “They found Amanda Berry. Alive.” What?! “Gina DeJesus, too,” he said. I nearly fell out of my chair. “And a third one.” I couldn’t believe it. I...

Fail forward. That’s what my husband taught me. He’s an entrepreneur. Me, I want to get paid every Friday by someone else. I don’t mind signing the back of my paycheck. He loves signing the front of the paychecks. I’ve learned a lot being married to the owner of a small...

Cancer is scary. The day you get the diagnosis, it’s like someone tossed the game of Life in the air and all the pieces go flying. You don’t know where they’ll land. But cancer isn’t a death sentence. Far from it. Millions of people have survived cancer. Millions of people...
