“Talking about writing isn’t writing.” This sentence, spoken from my writing mentor Sister Mara Faulkner, changed my life. I’m serious. Her simple, yet powerful words didn’t only alter how I write, but how I approach just about every task or project—and dare I say relationship?—since the day she spoke them. Let me back up and tell you a little more

2020…Let it go!

Last winter I had the joy of leading a session at a women’s retreat in the beautiful lake country of Wisconsin.
