What would be possible if you felt utterly safe and free to live from the core of who you are?
After working with thousands of women and families from around the world, I find my clients universally journeying through these three revelations:
- When you release the cultural conditioning of "who you should be" and journey back home to who you truly are, you will find yourself empowered to live in a sacred manner, where joy and truth emanate from you. When you're living in this radiant space of your own truth, you naturally and effortlessly inspire others to connect to their authentic core, too.
- In order to come home, you must first remember that you are safe, you belong, and you are here to be fully expressed, just like any other living thing on earth. The acorn is here to become the mighty oak; You are here to become the brightest and boldest version of YOU.
- When you first heal what's holding you back, you become the medicine that our planet needs to heal and thrive.
The more we are each activated in our full potential, the greater opportunity we have to collectively shape our world through the lens of love, inclusion, stewardship, and peace.
I believe we've been given the collective assignment and great responsibility to cultivate a more Nourished Home for our people and planet in the 21st century. From the world we create for our children to the ways we're relating in community and environment; the time is now.

The past year has been beautiful, intense, sometimes challenging, and oftentimes joyful. My dear Mary Kate was born December 2017 and I found myself called to be quiet in the online space.
My days have been filled with the work of motherhood and with the circle of 16 women I've led through the experience of Journey Home to YOU (JHTY) this year. After Mary Kate was born I found myself listening to the inner voice within, asking me to keep it simple, do my best work, and honor my energy and wellbeing by focusing on family life and this one beautiful circle of women.
As my baby's due date approaches, I feel the thrill and nerves that come with knowing she could arrive any day now. What an adventure it is to bring new life into this world!
I am fully switching gears into the quiet days that lead up to the birth of my baby girl and I'm also excited to deepen into the sacred joy of the upcoming holiday season.
I took this picture of the sun shining down on my 10-year-old daughter's final soccer game of the season on Saturday. The girls truly radiated in that glow as they ran up and down the field.
As I prepare for the birth of my third daughter, my devotion to helping all beings feel free to shine and thrive is stronger than ever.
When you were born you did not come into this world questioning your worth. You did not arrive here asking, "Am I enough?"
Just as the sun is here to burn and shine, you are here to live from the fullness of all that you are.
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.
