International Women’s Day

In honor of International Women’s Day I thought I would share a few thoughts on the subject. I am blessed to have several very dear sweet women in my life, with whom I have very special relationships. I value these relationships immensely, and honestly can’t imagine how I would function without them. Sure I’d manage to operate at a rather sub par level, but never would I venture to soar, to dream, to be victorious over fear without the strength and love from my community of women. These are the kind of women who build you up, not tear you down, who tell you the truth, not tell you what you want to hear, and who ignite your creativity, not slay your confidence.




A community of women ought to be marked by affirmation, support, unity, and the overwhelming sense that if we do life together, we are much better and stronger as a result. Successful women have a loyal tribe of supportive and honest women behind them. Not girls who compete with each other, but women who empower one another. We raise our children together, we carry our burdens together, we celebrate our triumphs together, and we are free to speak our truth together. I believe there is nothing that a community of women cannot handle. I am so grateful to be a woman, to have beautiful and inspiring women in my life, and to have the opportunity to work with women in my Health Coach practice.


International Women’s Day should be about honoring the remarkable women around the world; strong women with honor, grace and integrity. Let’s strive to know them, to be them, to raise them!


A Moment of Gratitude

Thank you to the amazing women who have acted as mentors and role models, that helped shaped me into the woman I have become. I am grateful for the special friendships that have stood the test of time. I have a special bond with you that cannot easily be broken. You are more like sisters than girlfriends. There’s nothing like the safety and comfort of family. I am also thankful for the beautiful souls that God has put in my life over the last few years. You have been there for me in difficult times, and with me in life’s victories and blessings. Thank you Lord for these strong, passionate, tender, loving, spirited and encouraging women. I am blessed to know them, and a better woman because of them.
