What is your core calling?
Women come to me with big ideas and core callings that they think are too bold, edgy, or out there. They fear they aren't enough to live up to their dreams of making a big impact. I guide them through their fears and into their brilliance so that they can achieve success and impact as leaders, activists, and change makers.
It's time for you to bring more harmony, joy, and peace to your own Nourished Home. And it's time for you to step up and into leadership as a Mama on a Mission, doing your part to create a more nourishing home for our planet and the whole human family.
Together, let's look at the whole of your life and help you achieve wild success, healing, and joy at home and as a leader in your community.
We are the Mama on a Mission Movement™. When you first heal what's holding you back, you become the medicine that our planet needs to heal and thrive.

My baby is coming in a month now.
I know my call right now is to surround myself with positive, loving energy. To harness that place within that is both powerful and peaceful. So I ask the universe, my friends, and family for love, courage, and positivity.
I call on the strength and wisdom of all the mothers who came before me.
I don’t know why I am alive
but I know what I want to live for
I don’t know why I am here now
but I know I am called to be
May we remember that we are part of a great universal web
May we mothers remember
That we are all linked through the journey of
May we all remember that not a one of us is alone.
May we take comfort in remembering
We are the ones who give life to the entire human race
May we honor our profound and sacred power as women
We are the mothers of all.
When I feel most overwhelmed with my own stuff, there is one thing I do that always brings me relief. And that is writing to you, dear reader.
Why does writing to you bring me relief?
Connecting with you reminds me that I'm simply a part of our larger human family.
And this brings me so much peace.
This is the third installment of my series on how to reclaim peace, courage and clarity to serve in a way that nourishes you and our planet. Today I share why being of service is a fundamental part of healing yourself and finding peaceful perspective on the complexities we are all facing on the collective scale.
Here I am on the morning of the Total Solar Eclipse that spanned the entire United States on August 21st, 2017. I felt such peace, awe, and wonder.
How freeing it is to remember that there are grand rhythms, cycles, and transitions continuously unfolding in the cosmos.
Man, does that perspective make the rhythms, cycles, and transitions of my own life feel so miraculously manageable.
Although it's liberating to remember that my daily life is but a speck in the grand scheme of things here on earth, I also feel the gravity of how precious and fleeting my time is.
So I'm devoted to owning my relationship with time. I'm devoted to spending my time on the stuff that matters most to me.
It's easy to feel helpless, scared and small in times like these.
Yet I know that one of the most important things you and I can do is remember our power and believe in our purpose and impact.
Stay awake to why it's so important for you to work through fear and claim your courage in every facet of your life right now.
When you feel small, afraid, overwhelmed and exhausted it's near impossible to be an effective leader in your family, community, or career.
And what we need right now is for all conscious, soulful Mamas on a Mission to be in the fullness of our power and gifts.
I've been so grateful to watch the sunset the last two nights from these chairs with my daughter, Laila. We've been on a special mama-daughter getaway at a rustic cabin in Maine before school begins next week. I promised her a few years back that when she's ten we'd do something like this, just the two of us. And somehow my first baby is already 10 so here we are. These last two days have been so, so good.
While we've been savoring this quiet time together my spirit has called on me to write what I share below. I'm nervous to share this. It isn't comfortable to speak from my heart and soul in this way. But I believe we are capable of creating a Nourished Home for all and I am doing my best to be of service to that mission. Thank you for journeying with me, and for doing your part to contribute to a more Nourishing Home for your children and all of our children.
As a mama I don't have hours a day set aside to find my truth on a mountain somewhere.
My magic, my joy, and the ways I refuel are simple. They don't take a ton of time.
But the more I choose to create magic in every moment, the easier it becomes for me to be a powerful leader and change maker.
I’ve found myself up a little later at night this past week thinking about where we’re headed as a planet. The tweets, the rhetoric, the back and forth posturing and threats that unfolded between the U.S. president and North Korea have had my mind racing.
And what took place at the white supremicist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend sickened me. Hundreds of white men from around the country held tiki torches they likely bought at Walmart and raged against all those who are not just like them.
They chanted against people of color, women, Jews, Muslims. They spoke of “taking their country back”. Back from whom? Back from what? Who has oppressed and subjugated white men in the United States? Ever?
And then there were the courageous souls who chose to stand for equality, peace, and racial harmony.
I was 27 years old when my husband and I felt the call to have our first child.
Although the call was strong I felt such fear and uncertainty. One thing I knew for sure was that I had no idea what I was doing when it came to birthing and raising a baby.
So how did I choose to dive into such a massive endeavor?
