If you’ve heard my story, you know that I spent 24 years in an emotionally abusive marriage. My fairytale marriage turned into a nightmare. Now I am taking steps toward a brighter future with renewed energy, strength, and focus. I spent years in my marriage accommodating everyone else’s needs over my own. You may as well have called me the go “fetch it girl” because if anyone had a need, small or large, I dropped everything Read More

Fear stops all of us, but once we face our fear we can release its hold on us. In my private coaching programs, I teach clients how to shift their fears so they can confidently move forward on their dreams. It’s the most inspiring part of the work I do. This month, I am celebrating 17 years in business for myself, and I have had to move through many fears to make it this long. So, Read More

Are you religious? Most of the stay-at-home moms I know are. I’m not surprised because so many of us see stay-at-home motherhood as a divine calling. Although religion can be a great help, religious rituals alone don’t guarantee happiness, especially if you’re only going through the motions. I can say from experience, you will never feel real joy until you experience God’s presence. Besides, if your religion boils down to passed down routines, traditions, and Read More

Have you ever mistaken an insult for a compliment? It sounds nice but it really isn’t meant to be flattering at all. I overheard him say it, “Oh man, she is really low maintenance.” I thought he meant I was humble… next to Godliness. Nope. What he was actually saying was that I did not value myself and it showed in the way I presented myself to others. His opinion was that I did not Read More

In last week’s post, I shared the importance of connecting with divine guidance to live your life purposefully. To receive your next big blessing, the first thing to do is position yourself to hear the wisdom within you and be open to the answer coming in a different way. You may receive a vision, a word, an instruction, a dream, or a new perspective. In whatever way the answer comes, you will know how to move Read More

Are you correctly positioned for a blessing in your life? That’s not for me to answer for you, but if you’re still standing in the same spot you were yesterday doing what you’ve always done, chances are you’re not in position for something new. Why? Because you have to do something different to get what you’ve never had. The good news is, over the next few weeks, I am going to tell you four ways Read More

Imagine this. You do all the right things. You finish college. You stay in church and follow all the advice the church mothers teach you. One day, you find your Prince Charming. He may not be riding a white horse, but he is willing to follow the church rules with you – regularly attending church service (dancing like David every Sunday), showing you kindness and affection, and (the big one!) willing to remain celibate until Read More

That figure considers a base salary of a 40-hour work week and overtime equating to about 52 hours. According to this estimate, being a SAHM is invaluable; yet many moms struggle with self-worth.

Are you lying on a nail? Odd question, right? Why would you or anyone for that matter be lying on a nail? I read this story several years ago told by Les Brown, a well-known motivational speaker. As you read it today, see if you can recognize yourself in the old couple’s dog. One day, a man walked past a house and saw a little old lady rocking in her chair, a little old man Read More
