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.

I went through a lot in this little town growing up, like you did in your own hometown.
Coming home with my family has been so beautiful, so healing, and also forced me to confront a lot of the stories from my childhood that still impact me today.
It's an unfolding and I must be patient and kind to myself.
When you imagine the children of our world growing up, do you want them to feel safe and even thrilled to let their unique brilliances be fully seen, received, and appreciated by those they love and serve?
If you want your children to feel free and full and alive in these ways then you must give yourself these very gifts NOW.
If you want to live in a world where all children feel safe to be fully expressed, living lives of purpose and impact as they grow, then you must give yourself these very gifts NOW.
What I have learned is that the inner revolution of your own healing is the very medicine that ripples out and changes legacies in family, community, and our global consciousness.
Whatever you are preparing to birth right now -- a baby, a creative project, a mission-driven business, or the next offering on your service path, it's time to feel reverence and awe because what you are doing is sacred.
And whenever you're birthing something substantive into the world you're going to be afraid.
You're likely going to have a moment (or two) where you don't think you can do it anymore.
Giving birth is messy. Powerful energy surges through you. It can hurt. It can feel ecstatic.
Many women ask me, "How do I take that first leap forward with my calling? What if I'm not clear on where to begin? What if I fail? How will I know I'm ready?"
I know that I haven't felt "ready" or "enough" or "prepared" or "clear" when I've taken that first step with any of my own callings.
Think back to anything big that you've done in your life. Were you really ready when you started?
Do the trees feel fear about growing their leaves again each spring? No.
Do the flowers fear sprouting up through the ground and blossoming as the earth warms every year? No.
Do the bees who are called to drink sweet nectar from the flowers and pollinate our world fear their calling? No.
Every living thing on earth is designed to bloom into it's full expression, to follow the path of it's particular calling.
And of all the living things on earth, we humans are the only ones that question our full expression, our deepest potential.
It's International Women's Day today. And tonight is also the New Moon for our next Lunar Cycle. Why is is this important and how is it all connected to you?
You've heard me say before that when you align yourself with nature your align yourself with YOUR nature.
And when we, as women, collectively align ourselves with the the rhythms and cycles of the natural world we're a part of, we are able to more deeply access our truths, our joy, our creativity, our integrity, and our power as Mamas on a Mission.
I seem to forget every year that although I love the dynamic seasons I get to experience in Maine, winter is really hard for me. I'm understanding this in a way I haven't before and I hope and pray I remember the wisdom coming through this time next year.
I went on a walk in my beloved woods this morning and got this message from my Inner Wise Woman.
If you are to do one thing today let it be this.
Let your feet feel the earth beneath them.
Crunchy white snow. Soft silky sand. Gentle blades of grass.
Wherever you are in the world step outside and align your being with nature.
Those first few years of being a Mama rocked my whole world. I was totally enraptured by these girls. I was wildly devoted to understanding how to be the very best mother I could be for them.
I'll be enraptured by these girls until the day I die. I'll always be devoted to being all that I can for them. But over the past nine years of parenting (this month!!!!) I've experienced many shifts in HOW I practice my devotion to my girls, my family, and our journey together.
I woke up and pulled back the shade from my bedroom window to this view. The moon peaking through the trees in my backyard. The promise of sun on the horizon. And lots of darkness.
I sat there in quiet meditation for just a few moments and whispered to myself,
"Let me be awake to all of this."
