Love is love is love.

  It was 2013. I'd just opened my private practice as a therapist after working as a substance abuse counselor for a couple of years. My practice was in a conservative part of Texas and I was one of the few therapists who specifically and openly welcomed in members of the LGBTQ community. My practice [...]

Wild + Holy Weekend

I was sitting in some quiet reflection this morning before Brax woke up reading the Desire Map and three things occurred to me: I really need to start getting up before he does because - peace + quiet feeds this ambivert's soul I'm craving time with like minded soul-sisters like nobody's business so what can I do [...]

Operation Feel Good Naked

(and the difference between intentions and goals) It's the New Year and along with that comes dreams and desires for what we want to see manifest in the next 365 days around the sun.   In the past, I've done vision boards, created goal lists, chosen my Core Desired Feelings, gotten clear on the habits, [...]

Do You Have Fighting Rules?

I'm working with one amazing couple right now on rebuilding trust and making sure they're both being seen and heard in their relationship.  They started their coaching process with a solid foundation and did what I wish every couple would do, which is reach out for help before things get too far gone.   They're [...]

The Rumbling

I have complete and utter faith that God speaks to us with signs.  He/She holds up a mirror for reflection.  He/She puts people and events in our path that pulls at pieces of our hearts that we've heard whispering for some time, but for whatever reason we have not yet heeded. Being in that vulnerable [...]

The God I Know

I feel like I have white hot truth coursing through my veins this morning. In the midst of dreams, powerful thoughts came through my mind as always happens the morning before I’m set to write my heart out. It’s almost as if my heart tells my head all the words it’s been holding and my [...]

Go Where the Pain Is

There will be a vulnerability hangover tomorrow for sharing this- but that's the price of truth. *********** There's a rumbling and I don't know if I even have words to describe it yet, but I know I need to share where I am and what I'm feeling because I know someone else might be feeling [...]

Breck and I went and had some family photos done this past weekend and I'm absolutely thrilled with how they turned out.  As I look at this picture of me holding Brax, I stop and stare at that woman.  Who is she?   I see her there holding this little angel, taking in all his [...]

As I was preparing today's Motivational Monday podcast episode, I decided to reread a bit of Brene Brown's latest book, Rising Strong. There are many, many powerful passages in there in regards to bravery. I share one of them on today's episode. But one thing that really got me thinking having just read Love Warrior by [...]

Love Warrior Made Me Do It

  About once in a decade, a book comes around that inspires women to dig deeper and be more courageous within their soul. In 2006, that book was Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. In 2016, that book is Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton. I just found Glennon about six weeks before Love Warrior [...]
