My Social Media Diet

Social media…should you feast or fast? Hello friends! Anybody else feeling a little overwhelmed by social media these days? So there you are, just clicking through your newsfeed, hoping to see cute baby pics, silly memes, inspiring recipe videos, and friendly updates. But instead you are blasted by powerful negativity, polarizing politics and blanket putdowns. Isn’t it amazing to see

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Ellie LeBlanc

This week’s #RealLifeWonderWoman is both an entrepreneur and a college student. She’s not afraid of hard work and is fueled by a desire to genuinely care for others. I’ve seen her activate her inner superpowers of hospitality and kindness as the Assistant Manager at Evelie Blu Boutique (one of my favorite places to shop!) where she makes each guest who enters

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Kristen Brown

Today’s real life Wonder Woman is a little like Diana Prince. She may have some science nerd tendencies, but she’s also strong and powerful–full of energy and driven by a desire to help people. She is a bestselling author, keynote speaker, energy mastery expert, 15-year corporate leader, widowed mom, crystal reiki healer, yoga teacher, biohacker, and founder of namaSync. She

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Jenna Gibson

All of the real-life Wonder Women we feature are amazing and inspiring, each special in her own way. But today’s #RLWW is extra special to me, as I’ve known her since she was born.

If 2020 was a math problem…

  I’ve never been a fan of math word problems, which is funny because I’m a huge fan of words. Just not the math part. But given how this year has gone, this problem does not sound nearly as ridiculous as it did last year. Even though the year has been challenging in too many ways to count, many good

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet J. Rosemarie Francis

I was recently asked to be a guest on a popular parenting podcast. Solo Moms! TALK is a place for moms to connect and explore the challenges they face in raising children alone. No matter where we are in our mom journeys, we can always use a sisterhood of supporters to help us not only survive, but thrive. And one

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Nikki Fuchs

Nikki Fuchs played Wonder Woman growing up. That’s her in the adorable photo below. She had a tiara, a lasso of truth, and (of course) her mom Jane made her magic cuffs! Then, she used her superpowers to save the world and catch villains. Today, this real life Wonder Woman uses her superpowers today to encourage other people to do more,

Is Fifty Really Nifty?  50 things I’ve learned in 50 years

Is Fifty Really Nifty?  Folks, I’ve got a big one this month (okay…today). Yes, the big 5-0. My Golden Jubilee! A half century of living. I can hardly believe it. Parts of me only feel 30. Others, well, they look and feel much much older!  When I look back over the past decades, I do believe I’ve learned a thing

Wonder-FULL earns GOLD!

I’m thrilled to tell you the good news! We earned the GOLD medal in the inspirational book category for this year’s MIPA awards. As an author, this is amazing validation for the blood, sweat and tears that went into the writing and publishing process. Creating a book is definitely a labor of love, but the accolades sure don’t hurt!  The
