About the Author

Welcome, Friend. I am excited that you stopped by my blog.

The purpose of Love is Stronger is to help bring more love into our relationship with ourselves and with each other.

About Me: I have my PhD in philosophy, with a specialty in ethics and social and political philosophy. I also have a masters degree in Educational Leadership.

I teach a variety of classes at a local college including ethics, logic, feminist philosophy, and theories of economic justice.

I am the author of three logic and critical thinking textbooks for middle and high school students, which are published by Classical Academic Press: Argument Builder, Discovery of Deduction (co-author), and Everyday Debate.

A lot of the artwork on my blog is my own. I think art is one of the ways we share love with the world, and it often also helps us and others better understand the concepts we are trying to communicate.
