I was interviewed on Moms Who Know Podcast about Shining in Life and Caregiving. It is a great interview with a very real perspective about caregiving. I also talk about my new project at the end of the podcast, a Living Unfrozen Women’s Retreat! Follow the link below for a great way to boost you […]
Category: Keeping It Real
Adversity in life magnifies what is truly important.
With our kids heading back to school today and I am always filled with such mixed emotions. I LOVE our summers together and the fun memories that we make. Especially after this summer’s Chair The Hope ride that brought our family closer together but also covered most of July, I have been longing for a […]
TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY WE RIDE!
It’s 2:15am and I am obviously awake. Nate hit the pillow tonight and was out! My mind usually decides to go through the “to do” list just after the clock strikes midnight and tonight I am filled with so much emotion, love, overwhelming gratitude, as well as a bit of stress, and I wanted to […]
Comfort Zone? Left There Long Ago!
We are running fast and furious towards our goal of raising money for wheelchairs for the beautiful people in developing countries that need mobility. Each step of this process has taught us so much about how to go after goals, where to get assistance, who you can count on to jump in and believe in you, […]
A few years back, while laying on our tan recliner bundled in with blankets, I felt an overwhelming feeling that crippled me to tears. My lower back writhed in pain, my neck and shoulder were seized from whiplash, and my brain felt so confused. Nate and I were on our way home from a date […]

I looked at her and said, “Did you say namaste?” Looking puzzled she shook her head and said, “No. It’s Momma Stay.” I fell over laughing at the innocence and irony of the humor. Later […]
Sore Bum or the Diaper Look?
It is time to stop beating around the bush and start talking about the real problems in my life. The struggle is real and it is unavoidable! My keister is so sore from my first week of training for our Coos Bay to LA event that I had to take matters into my own hands. […]
Twig of Faith – Finding Strength
Being sick stinks! I have definitely been worn down these last 3 weeks with less sleep, congested head, exhausted body, and foggy mind. I just wanted to scream out, “I am done with this darn illness!” and then put myself in bed, again. On Saturday night, I had a breakthrough. Of course it had to […]
Sore Muscles Hurt So Good
Since moving back from Virginia, I have not gone to the gym, done yoga, barre, or anything to keep my muscles and cardio in a healthy zone. I decided that it was time to take back another side of me, and so I am making it a priority to take a few classes a week, go […]
Ignite your Flame- Vision Board
Each morning as I am picking out my clothes for the day I see my VISION BOARD. I placed my goals in an area that would set my morning intentions, helping me to live into them more fully. At a recent conference I learned some valuable lessons from James “Iron Cowboy” Lawrence. He is an […]
