Hi There! Monday was Ellie’s 5th birthday! My parents and I brought a cookie cake to her school to celebrate with her class. I loved watching Ellie interact with her friends. You can see the respect and love they have for her because she is so kind to each one of them. It makes me… Read more »

Your Best Life Later

Speaking UP

Gratitude Changes Everything

Then I wrapped my arms around her and said, “It’s OK to miss Daddy.” We had this conversation on Christmas day and it still… Read more »

Forward Momentum

Hi Friend! A couple of weeks ago I found myself in a predicament. A friend of mine, whom I really respect and admire, messaged me to ask if I was still doing a lot of running. She’s always been an incredible athlete. She was four grades ahead of me in school and I always looked… Read more »

Remembering My Worth

Hello! Has someone you loved ever said something to you that caused you to feel like you were not good enough for them or just “less than”?

The Time is NOW
