The Reason for the Season

The Reason for the Season

Christmastime should be a joyful time of year. That’s why there’s something I feel called to clear up: it's not about the gifts. It is, however, about so much more… For me, Christmas traditions have become more “because I have to” than “because I want to.” We send the...

A Worthy Cause

A Worthy Cause

How do you take part in the season of giving? Maybe you donate toys to charity or sponsor a family for the holidays... For Laurel and me, we are focused on helping victims of human trafficking through our collaboration with the nonprofit MoviesMakingADifference. Click...

Create Your Vision to Find Purpose

Create Your Vision to Find Purpose

I am on a mission to help you and everybody you want to impact find their vision and purpose because we need to disrupt the patterns in this world. The sadness, the scarcity mentality, feeling stuck, feeling anxious ­­– all the things that I know people are struggling...

Choosing Joy

Choosing Joy

We are in the season of joy. And I think this year, it's been more challenging than ever for people to choose joy every day. I've had a lot of loss. I've lost both my husband and my son to suicide in the past six years. One of the biggest things we tend to attach joy...

The Importance of Being Grateful

The Importance of Being Grateful

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect. It’s the perfect chance to thank the people in your life for the benefits that they bring. For many people, they think back on the past year and come up with an answer for what they’re most grateful for when they’re asked at the...

Create Order in the Chaos

The Importance of Patience and Faith

The Importance of Patience and Faith

I’m truly not a very patient person. I like to get things done and I like to see the results right away. Life just doesn't work that way, unfortunately. As a result, I’ve had to learn to have a whole lot more patience, especially with myself. Some of the projects that...

How to Stay Focused

How to Stay Focused

We are a country that is just holding our breath. I can feel that in the universe. Many people are feeling so distracted right now, not knowing how to reel it in.  I've become quite adept at staying focused no matter what's going on around me, regardless of what's...

Getting Past Fear

Getting Past Fear

I help people look forward. When you sit down with me (or at home) and write out your vision, we specifically look forward three years. That’s because we need to have a target date of what YOU want your life to look like. We start with age. How old will you be in...

Letting Go of the Baggage

Letting Go of the Baggage

I have a confession to make: I am a chronic over-packer. Yes, I have been known to pack almost my entire closet for trips ­– especially the long trips where I’m gone for several days or even weeks. When I spent almost a month in Oklahoma when my daughter gave birth to...
