You Are My Passion
I am passionate about equipping you to thrive.  Too many women are merely 'survive' in their jobs, in their marriages, and in their task of parenting. Until I intentionally set out to become equipped, I too was merely a survivor of whatever life brought me.
I know what it's like to sit in the ash pile like Job. Not just for a year, but literally for more than two decades. Maybe you're there now. I know what it's like to feel hopeless, be filled with despair, be an unwilling participant in circumstances over which you have no control. Struggle with health, in marriage, in parenting. I have so much I want to share with you. Because I can't possibly meet with each in person (especially during this pandemic), I am writing my story, intended to equip you and bring you hope and a future.  Stay tuned for my 2021 book release "From the Ashes I will Rise: Knocked Down, but not Knocked Out". 
My intent is to provide some tools that will better equip you to thrive in your life. I provide tools in several ways: 
*Materials on this website
*Books I write
*Classes I teach
*Conferences I speak at (Virtual/In-Person)
Whatever method you access, I pray you find nuggets that will help you in your journey as a woman, a wife, a mother, an employee. I will do my best to keep up with regular posts, but if I fail-please please reach out to me!!!

Let Me Help You Thrive!

I love people and would love to help you thrive in life. I'm old enough to have been down some roads...some good, some not so good. Coupled with training and education, my experiences have equipped me to equip you! I will only send an email 1x a week, but it will have links and resources, tips and ideas that will help you thrive in your everyday life.
