You may be thinking: Is that her real name?

Aloha! I’m Kristina God.

Yes, it’s my real name! As an employee at Maui Airport stated, ‘apparently God is from Germany and she’s a woman.’😉

My life’s motto is: ‘In love with inspiring stories’💕, since my writing journey started early in my childhood. As soon as I could hold a pencil, I started writing short stories.

As an adult, I’ve fueled my creative hunger by studying journalism, comms, and marketing. I became a consultant, and later on, worked as a Brand Manager.

A few months ago, my husband recommended a Medium story. Immediately I fell in love with the inspiring community and I said to myself: Let’s give it a try.

Since I’m multi-passionate and play many roles, I write about parenting, love, life, & storytelling✍️.

Thanks for making my words a part of your day!

It’s not sex…

Recently, I read an article about early motherhood and sex drive. The essence from Laura Fox’s post: there is more to a deep relationship than sex. You can connect with your partner in many ways that don’t include sex. But with humans, sex seems to be on their minds all the time. Our society is almost obsessed with it.

Sex is the instrument of life

As the famous yogi Sadhguru says in his book ‘Inner Engineering’ regarding animals, ‘the urge is present in their body at certain times; otherwise they are free from it’. His plea: human beings should accept their biology for what it is…

The ‘maternal instinct’ in dads drives them berserk.

We always write about maternal instinct, but we read less about paternal instinct. Although, the medium community shows that there are obviously many loving and caring fathers of today who play a vital role in the lives of their children, e.g., Ryan Glenn Christopher Robin Paulo Costeri Tom Fenske Carlos Garbiras ScienceDuuude Sylvia Emokpae’s husband Ashley Sole, who seem to have a deep and powerful attachment to their children. But does ‘paternal instinct’ exist?

Fathers of today can feel this undeniable bond too

Yes, it’s a fact: fathers can‘t feel their baby growing inside their womb or enjoy the experience of breastfeeding. However, this doesn’t prevent them from feeling…

Research shows it improves memory

You should let your children try things out and not let your fear hold them back from doing things. For instance climbing trees.

Specifically climbing trees is ridiculously good for our brains. Who would have thought? A study by the Department of Psychology at the University of North Florida showed a 50 percent boost in working memory. Dr. Ross Alloway, researcher from the University of North Florida, states that the research ‘has wide-ranging implications for everyone from kids to adults.’

Working memory is a crucial mental skill

Working memory is a basic mental skill. It’s like a temporary sticky note and important for learning everything — from…

From strangers exclaiming: ‘Excuse me Miss, your left breast is sticking out!’ To my baby thinking: ‘What do you mean, you just fed me?’ Or a shop assistant: ‘Unfortunately, we don’t sell XXXXL bras!’

I’m not a mum who keeps mum about how feeding actually plays out.

For a long time, the life of my husband, a new father, was all about boobs. Boobs were omnipresent. They were everywhere. First, they were soft and normal-sized, then wonderfully plump and filled to the brim with milk, and sometimes they were inflamed or injured. But they were always there — the center of attention Unfortunately for my husband, he had nothing to do with them. Our baby hogged them from the first breath, especially the very sensitive area of the nipples. …

Why walk when you can dance? Baby dances in mommy’s womb.

Classical music has been in our family for generations. When I was a little girl I used to play the violin. I even took ballet lessons and danced to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker.

There are also babies in utero who can’t help but slip on their dancing shoes when hearing Mozart or Beethoven. Indeed, if you let your baby listen to classical music in utero this could be the start of a wonderful life-long bond.

This baby for example is dancing and kicking in mommy’s womb💃👶:

But what about the so-called Mozart effect? …

Simply follow your heart and become a creator, like this 6-year-old

Instead of dealing with all the ‘what ifs’, ‘shoulds’ and ‘cannot dos’, we ‘should’ simply do what we want! Don’t you think?

In my latest article, I tell the inspiring story of a monster enthusiast. His name is Elia. At the age of six, the explorative child is already an entrepreneur. He draws monster pictures and sells them on the internet. You can buy drawings of monsters, ninjas, and ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ from him on his online shop.

He had a dream and didn’t ask himself whether he could implement it. He simply did it — with passion and energy!

If your mother-in-law wants to be a mate, better be cautious.

The metamorphosis of my cool mother-in-law was slow but steady. I didn’t see it coming.

In 2018, my husband and I got married. This event turned my former cool and casual MIL into a monster. Although we wanted a small wedding my monster-in-law insisted on inviting a whole host of unknown relatives.

On a regular basis, she shares various pieces of unsolicited advice about how to manage my marriage. To be honest, each one is a slap in my face.

My husband and I talked with a therapist and he explained the psychological reason for her behavior. …

Baby in utero can’t help but slip on their dancing shoes when hearing Beethoven. But will it become more intelligent too?

You’ve probably heard of the ‘Mozart effect’. It’s the idea that if you let your baby listen to classical music it will become more intelligent.

That’s why mothers put headphones on their bellies, so that their unborn children can already benefit from this amazing discovery.

Amazing, but unfortunately not true.

How the myth of the ‘Mozart effect’ was born

When it comes to scientific evidence on this ‘phenomenon’, there was a study from the University of California in the early 90s. But this study was conducted on students, not children, and wasn’t even about higher IQs.

According to the original paper, the researchers saw a temporary improvement of the…
