Creative Salvation: In Sickness

This week, Dustin and I talk about our marriage and what makes us work. We take you behind the scenes during our courtship, talk about what went into our wedding and the process of blending our families -- and then we get into the nitty gritty of what it...

Creative Salvation: Finding Faith

This week, I bring my sister in to chat with me about growing up Catholic and where our faith journeys have taken us. I loved this conversation because we touched on so many important points! And my little sister is pretty rad, so any excuse we get to spend a day...

Creative Salvation: Growth Mindset + Creativity

In this episode of our podcast, Creative Salvation, Dustin and I chat about the difference between a fixed mindset versus a growth mindset, and things get pretty deep. I share some of my insight from the world of creativity, and why I think we all need to be...

Creative Salvation: Being in the Wilderness

In this episode of Creative Salvation, I get to chat with my awesome friend Caiti Spiess! She and I have had a LOT of conversations over the past year about being in the wilderness, and what that means for our growth and our relationship with God. Give it a listen,...

Creative Salvation: A Hundred Obedient Steps

In episode 3 of Creative Salvation, we start to get personal. Give it a listen, and we would LOVE to hear your feedback on it! What other conversations do you want to hear? Who else should I talk to? What topics should we tackle? We would love it if you'd take a...

Creative Salvation: Ennea…what now?

In our second podcast episode, we chat about the Enneagram! Give it a listen, and we would LOVE to hear your feedback on it! What other conversations do you want to hear? Who else should I talk to? What topics should we tackle? We would love it if you'd take a moment...

Creative Salvation: Launching a NEW Podcast!

We are launching an ALL NEW podcast, and we're crazy excited about it! Creative Salvation is a series of conversations. Since becoming sick, some of the greatest treasures I've received are the conversations I've gotten to have -- times I've gotten to share what God...

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...
