You’ll See.

The Easter story is a remarkable one. It's also a relatable one. This year, more than any before, it's hitting home for me in a really big way.   Imagine it. You're a disciple, a follower of Jesus, and you've given up your whole life to take a journey with the man...

WOO your strengths: An interview with UnleashStrengths.com

I love to talk. That is no secret. Get me into a discussion about something I'm passionate about (which, let's face it...is pretty much anything), and I can go for daaaays. But focus that chat on something like strengths and authenticity, and it is GAME ON.   I had...

Celebrate Series with The OWN!

If you've chatted with me lately, you know that I am ALL sorts of on board with the mission of this incredible company, The OWN. Located here in Rapid City, South Dakota, The OWN is a co-op for fierce, fearless women business owners. It provides customized support,...

The Creative Process

The creative process is never a tidy one.   When I start to feel the tugs of a new idea, I know I'm in for one helluva ride. It's a cross between giving birth and bull riding -- and can last anywhere between 8 seconds and 9 months. (Or, for those really BIG ideas,...

Dare to Dream the BIG Dream

Confession time: I am mildly obsessed with watching the talent-competition reality shows like America's Got Talent and The Voice -- mostly the auditions and the finales.   Okay, maybe more than mildly. And maybe I find myself moved to tears over and over while...

How far will you go to keep yourself stuck?

We all have our “comfort zone.” But the truth is that for many of us, that so-called comfort zone is actually a very dark, painful place. It’s where all of our limiting beliefs and fears thrive.   It’s our default setting, and for a lot of us, it’s built by years of...

Know Thyself

We embark on this life, undertaking a sacred journey.   We separate from God, from Source, a sprinkle of stardust. We travel to this earthly life and are born with a spark of the divine deep within our souls.   As time passes, we grow further and further distant from...

Create Your Own Sacred Text

"When the pupil is ready, the master appears."   We've all heard this, and many of us have experienced it. But are you READY? Are you taking the steps to show the Universe that you're open to receiving?   When we are on a journey of self discovery, personal growth,...

Let go and Let God. For Reals.

No, really. Let it go.   Would you micromanage your boss? Probably not. So why are you trying to micromanage the Creator of All That Is? What can you possibly do better than the Source of all life? God, the Universal Energy, the Great Divine Being. Whatever your name...

What’s your great work?

What is your great work?   I don't mean your job. I don't even necessarily mean your career. I want to know what work you're doing that is an Act of God?   You can tell when you're doing it. You light up. You shock and awe those around you with your talents and...

Off the Grid: Creating Space

This week, I've found bliss. Again. Every year at the beginning of summer we have a family camping trip. A full week of tent living, away from the rest of the world. No rules. No schedules. No routines. No screens. Just family, fishing, swimming, s'mores and enough...

How to Save your Summer

Structure. Does it make you cringe? Do you feel resistance there?   Structure gives us the support we need to thrive. When we are able to adopt a structure that feels good, and gives us room to breathe, we find that it becomes almost effortless to create and live with...

Beyond the Light of Dawn

Disclaimer: This post is very personal, very painful, very brutal. I am sharing this story in response to #YesAllWomen and the courage of those who have spoken up.   Nobody ever talks about what happens after. When the dark night ends and the shadows retreat, when the...

Simple Truths Behind Common Blocks – Part IV

We all have them. Those pesky excuses that pop up every time we start to whine about why our work isn’t…working. I’m going to dig into a few of the ones I hear most often and show you why they aren’t actually true — and how you can actually obliterate them once and...

You are not special

I’ve noticed a major trend in the world of personal growth lately. The latest buzz word: self-love.   If you’ve jumped on board this self-love train, and you’ve found your way back to finding reasons and ways to love yourself, then bravo. Well done! Fill your own cup,...
