Give Yourself Permission – What Are You Waiting For?

She’s full of spunk and determination. She wants what she wants, and she communicates her desires with gusto as she points her sweet chubby little finger. (You may remember me mentioning her confidence here.) Still lacking the words to communicate her desires verbally, her points are frequently misunderstood. She adores Grammy’s house; unlike her own…

How Success Serves You

I’m letting the cat out of the bag. I have a fascination with tracking information. You might be completely bewildered by some of the information I’ve tracked over the years. In high school I tracked what I wore and where I wore each outfit. The tracking process included a coding system that’s fuzzy to me…

The Secret to Getting Results

Setting goals is the easy part. You know where you want to be! Your goals may be personal or professional, but you’ve got goals! You want to be 10 pounds lighter, finish writing that book, add half-dozen clients, successfully communicate with your spouse or co-workers, or perhaps you’d like to complete a blog a month.…

It Takes Commitment!

Ordinarily my husband and I go away for our anniversary. Over the years, we’ve celebrated our marriage in a variety of ways.

Guess What – Knowledge Isn’t Everything!

I did it AGAIN! I know I have a reputation for being dangerous in the kitchen with knives, but I’ve managed to go quite a stretch without cutting myself. It’s true! That “stretch” all came to a halt recently when I was blissfully chopping cilantro for the burritos I was making for dinner. Not only…

What’s Keeping You Up at Night?

Remember when you were a kid and it was bedtime? If you were like me, you would do anything you could to nudge that bedtime a bit later. And if by chance that wasn’t successful, you might implement the “read under the covers” plan. That was my favorite way to avoid having to go to…

How New Adventures Foster Success

Summer’s my favorite time of year – especially when you can savor books beach-side!  I adore a wide variety of reading material, but recently ambitious, adventurous, historical women have been the topic of the last several novels I’ve read. The characters zeal for life and courage to step outside the norm for women both professionally…

What A Difference Hope Makes!

Hope is a fragile thing. It is not stagnant. Hope swells. Hope shrinks. What I put my hope in – that makes all the difference! As believers, hope is a strong confidence in God – the One who has unlimited power and resources; He is the One who is able to make profound changes in…
