The Gift of BEing an Empowered Mom


You are worthy of every good thing life has to offer and it is essential that you believe it in order to BEcome the woman you are envisioning. 

You have been chosen to be in this body at this moment in history and you don't have to be or do or acquire anything to be more deserving than you are right now.  You are as unique as your thumbprint and there has never been and never will be anyone exactly like you. 

The world is waiting for you to shine your light with your unique combination of values, passions, gifts, skills, talents, characteristics and experience.

You may be asking yourself.  Well, why should I take the time to generate self-worth?  It sounds like a whole lot of work. 

Here is why. 

The greatest gift you can give your children and the world is to be an example of a powerful woman.  Not power over something or someone but personal power.  Recognizing and embracing the power within you. 

To create a new legacy of modeling self-love and self-acceptance for your children and everyone you encounter. 

Loving others (our children especially) more than ourselves is toxic and we don’t want to pass that along.  The world needs more examples of people who love themselves.  You are here to be that example. 

Remember this: 

You have a history but you are not your history. 

You have a story but you are not your story. 

You have a body but you are not your body. 

You are much much more.

And, if you need to borrow my belief in you for now, please feel free.

Shine Brightly,

I Heart Sedona


Do you have an adventure list?  Is there something in particular that you’d love to see or do or experience that just seems to stay a thought in your head?

Many years ago, my husband and I had an extended lay over in Phoenix.  We had just enough time to rent a car, drive the 2 hours to Sedona to watch a sunset and return to the Phoenix airport to catch our flight. Ever since then, experiencing another Sedona sunset had been on the adventure list in my head.

In May it became a reality!  Sunrise, sunset, yoga hiking tour and so much more.  It was just as I imagined it would be.  Just as I had written about it day after day.

  • I DECIDED to go to Sedona.
  • I IMAGINED it daily in my mind, in my journal and on my vision board.
  • I TOOK ACTION by choosing a date and making reservations.

That's me in tree pose on top of Cathedral Rock!  I even found a quiet rock to meditate on.  This is what it looks like when I follow my bliss.

What does your bliss look like?

Fun. Flow. Freedom.

Shine Brightly,

Are You Ready?


What if you had a magic wand and all of your dreams came true…today?  Would you be ready?

  • The dream partner
  • The dream business
  • The dream home

What if they were already here?  Would you be ready to open the door and let them in?

Many of us, when we even dare to dream, forget this very important piece.  In order to get what we want in life, we have to make the space for it.  Make it welcome in our lives.

There are 3 keys to creating the life of your dreams:

  • Decide - become crystal clear on what you desire in order to make it happen.
  • Believe – have undying faith that what you desire is already yours.
  • Act – take a step, every day, in the direction of your dream.

Ask this question.  What can I do today with what I have?

If you desire a dream home, for example, you might:

  • Find a real estate agent
  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage
  • Put your present home on the market

Dreaming your dream home doesn’t get you the keys.

Take a step.  Get ready.  Make it welcome.

Discover. Empower. Balance.

Shine Brightly,
