Oh how exactly do we keep our creative selves alive
between the loads of laundry,
the dinner prep,
the schedule-on-steroids that dictate our days,
the work,
and the homework?

And how can we ever really care for ourselves if
we feel disconnected to who we are now
in this season of our lives?

These are the kinds of conversations K.L. Going and
I mulled over as we prepared our upcoming retreat,
Rekindling the Fire.

And out of our deep conversations on these topics,
we had an idea, a brilliant idea!

We decided to create a 3-part video series
where we engage in short conversations
around topics that explore Creativity in a Busy Life.

These conversations are particularly for
women and mothers who
feel the deep fatigue of everyday living…

and who desire more self-connection,
and more opportunities for self-expression
in their lives.

Ah, I’m so giddy to share this with you today,
because there’s really, really great stuff in this
video series :)

If you’d like instant access,
HOP ON OVER NOW…and sign up-
you’ll get whisked over to the first video immediately.

Then we’ll share the remaining 2 videos throughout
this week.

I can remember yearning for spaces in my life
where I could explore and process so much of the inner work
that is necessary to feel fully alive and engaged in life.

Our hope is that this series will create that dialogue for you
and encourage you to focus on
the needs of your own creative spirit and to
give it a chance to be nourished as well.

Again- click here to watch the first video, all about
“Writing as a Tool for Self Care, Self Care as a Tool for Writing”

Sending kindling for your creative soul,

**A special note, it was brought to our attention that

Don’t fake the answer to this question…

I have three kiddos all fairly close in age (7, 6, and 4 yrs old). Recently, my youngest, Brian, has started to “copy” everything my oldest, Jackson, wants. For example, before he says what flavor ice-cream he wants, he has to know what Jackson has ordered. Before he asks for a crayon, he checks what […]

Replenish Read Along is Here!

Just a little over a year ago, my first book, Replenish, was published and born into the world. And it felt like as soon as I announced it’s arrival, I began to get requests. Specifically, requests for me to read it and record an audio version. In all honesty it seemed like the most obvious […]

What’s more important than money?

In the email I sent earlier today, I said there was one question that helped me shift into a more vital relationship to money. (Psst- Not getting my emails?!- Head over here- I have something for you!) That one question helped put money back into it’s (healthy) place…which is, for me, as a tool.  A […]

The Questions We Never Ask…

A couple weeks ago, I was getting pedicures and enjoying a night out with a few girlfriends. I hopped onto the pedicure chair next to my good friend, Shawn, and the first thing she said was, “I’ve got to tell you something.” Backstory: Shawn is a very gifted writer but her dreams of writing took […]
