be clear – 5 steps to identifying your innateness
20 Oct

Ever have times when you think to yourself, “I want to be so many things and so many different people all at once, but I only have one life. How do I choose?”

I know I sure have those moments. Sometimes they come as a contemplative thought, other times as a slap in the face in the middle of the night. Don’t even ask where my mind goes then.

Courage = Heart
13 Oct

Most of the time we think courage is a big emotion we muster up in times of need, when the clouds descend and life collapses around us with loud booming noises.

Reflections on womanhood and courage
05 Oct

It is hard to find words for how much I love Terry Sidford’s One Hundred Hearts; not just the stories, but also the process it took to create such an insightful book.

Not only is this book an inspiration, it’s also a wonderful guide for men, specifically husbands, fathers, and sons. The more clearly men understand our…..

“You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind … but you can change yourself.” – Jim Rohn Looking out my living room window recently, I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the first bright streaks of yellow in the trees. Could fall be here so soon? The day before, I had put my youngest son on an airplane heading to Asia to experience a year of adventures he’d been dreaming about his whole life. I, however, was entirely…..

The Many Faces of Courage
22 Sep

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” Anais Nin

As most of you know, I recently finished writing a book on women’s courage (it’s in the publisher’s hands and due out any day!) One of the numerous lessons I learned during this process is that courage is expressed in as many forms as there are people who feel it.
