To Love takes Courage

“Love was a leap into the unknown, not a cautious dipping of the toe.” Martina Boone

 

The word courage has a Latin root, cor, which means heart. The heart has long been a metaphor used to depict inner strength. And I’m not sure if there’s anything that requires more courage and inner strength these days than to love.

To open your heart to someone, knowing that it might get broken.

To share your deepest needs and desires, not knowing if they will be met.

To love, even when that act of love may not be reciprocated, at least ...continue reading...

Why is Connecting with My Husband so Difficult?

“She’s a woman, you’re a dude. You’re not supposed to understand her. That’s not what she’s after…. She doesn’t want you to understand her. She knows that’s impossible. She just wants you to understand yourself. Everything else is negotiable.” Neal Stephenson

Each day, I speak with women who ask me, “Why is connecting with my husband so damn difficult?” More and more women are waking-up and wanting to feel a deeper connection with their husbands, but they don’t know how to get that or how to tell their husbands they want that…

How I Lost Myself and Found My Fire

“Passion is the oxygen of the soul.” Bill Butler

The Truth about Showing Up

“Today I make a stand for truth, as I extend my perceptions beyond what my senses reveal to me, to what I know to be true in my heart.”  Marianne Williamson, A Year of Miracles.

My entire life coaching practice is built on the concept of truth. Most people’s initial reaction is that truth is all about being honest and not lying – at least not intentionally. While that’s true (pardon the pun), it’s so much bigger and more beautiful than that. It’s about getting in touch with your own personal truth – that which God placed on your ...continue reading...

Three Things I’ve Learned from Telling my Story

“It does not have to be a story of drama or heroism.  It only has to be real and honest.”              Rev. Linda Middelberg

Lots of people have a goal to one day write a book; I certainly did. I had been in the process of writing a book for more than two years. It began as simple journaling to unleash the myriad of thoughts and feelings from my head and heart onto paper during a very painful time in my life.  I didn’t know it would ever become a book or “my story,” I just knew that writing it ...continue reading...
