Last of the Monogamous Couples
Last of the Monogamous Couples

As I lay in bed with my husband, I asked the question. “Are we the last monogamous couple?” He laughs: “It’s starting to seem that way.” My husband works in a testosterone-polluted environment. He works with all men and they are always doing what we secretly think men ... read more

Adopting A New Dream

I always planned on being a mom, but I never planned on being 32, single and on the phone with a pregnant teenager who wanted to give me her baby.

Fatherless Daughter

When I hear my friends talk about their dads and what a great relationship they have, it’s very hard for me to identify with them. I love my dad, but he has been a source of pain in my life due to the choices he has made as a father. Growing up, I was ... read more

Give Me Your Personality and I’ll Give You Mine
Give Me Your Personality and I’ll Give You Mine

When I first met my future-husband back in college, I thought he was cute – Then he spoke and I thought, “Oh man, I’m in trouble!” He was from England and his accent made me damn near swoon in the UCLA dining hall. He being a Brit, and I being a native Californian, I natu... read more

Want to Be Spiritual? Let Yourself Be Human!
Want to Be Spiritual? Let Yourself Be Human!

One of my favorite things about The Conversation is that Amanda and friends talk about REAL THINGS. Divorce, sex, aging, hardship, rock bottom and challenges. In the self-help world, there can be so much fluff and pretending to be happy that we seem to cease to interact with human beings and instead... read more
