Wake-Up Call

Hi There! About a month and a half ago I woke up with serious chest pains that worsened when I breathed in the cold air. I was scheduled to speak the next day, so I was a little worried the pain wouldn’t go away before the event. To be on the safe side, I went… Read more »

Sharing YOUR Story

Hi There! I’m coming off of a mountain top kind of week after an incredible speaking event in Florida for Keller Williams. The uplifting experience couldn’t have come at a better time. Prior to last week, I’d received some harsh criticism on social media and was feeling a little discouraged. As strong as I may… Read more »

The Shack

This past weekend I went to see the movie, The Shack. It’s one of my all-time favorite books. I remember exactly where I was when I first read it. I was on a cruise with my late husband, Andrew, and his family, and I couldn’t put it down. If you haven’t read the book or… Read more »

I once read a quote that said, “Laughter is the best medicine.” Being able to laugh with my late husband, Andrew, even during the most difficult seasons of life, helped me get through some painful moments.

Happy 6th Birthday Ellie!

Hi There! Today, my baby girl turns 6 and it’s blowing my mind how fast time flies. It’s true what they say, the days are long and the years are short. The first couple years of sleepless nights, combined with the constant crying from her colic tummy, seemed to make time creep by and I… Read more »

Letting go of Expectations

  Hello! Letting go of the way we think life should be is not easy. My daughter, Ellie, likes to remind me daily, “That’s not fair.” And I often respond with, “Life’s not fair.” I remember the moment when I realized my future would not look the way I had planned. My family was gathered… Read more »

TEDx

Hi There! Recently, someone encouraged me to take a risk and apply for a new opportunity. An opportunity that, if I got selected, would make me pee my pants with fear and excitement. Deep down, I was unsure if I had what it takes, but the thought that someone believed in me enough pushed me… Read more »
