Letters to Boys is a healing journey.

Life, love and relationships mark us – sometimes indelibly. It is only through understanding those scars, through revisiting the pain and celebrating the beautiful lost moments that we are reborn and remade. If we can start to tell our stories, to use our voices, and to listen to each other, we can reconcile our masculine and feminine rifts to come to a new place of understanding and transcendence.

On the verge of my 35th birthday, and just after achieving my 8th year of marriage, my life blew up. As a mother of two, a wife, an accomplished professional, a worship leader at my church, and now, an entrepreneur, I suddenly found myself the victim of a bizarre sexual assault. It happened while I was traveling for business, and it disrupted my whole world. It rattled my sense of self, challenged my concept of security and wholeness, and shook me to the core.

As I started to pick up the pieces, however, I realized that this event was so powerful and significant it had the potential to break up a shell I had unconsciously built around myself. It threatened (promised) to tear down the tower of external definitions of who I thought I was supposed to be, which I had created over years and years without really stopping to consider the choices I was making along the way.

This journey of mine back through time has been filled with tenderness, sadness, beauty, pain, and, mercifully for me (and now you) a good amount of hilarity.

 

 
 

Strategic PLanning That Actually Works is a best-selling Sass Attack about how to get your nonprofit's strategy nailed down and implemented

If you want to know how to make your mission rock and roll in the universe, get some serious results, and align your stakeholders to make magic happen, this book is for you. 

Not only will you get a step-by-step plan to engage your peeps, get them all on board for an amazing plan, and get all the tools to make it happen, you'll also get some excellent downloads and templates to help you make it so. This is based on the process I use with my nonprofit and mission-focused businesses to help them identify their goals, set a course, define their business model and MAKE IT HAPPEN. It's also fun to read, which is not something you can say about almost any other book about strategic planning. I would know, I've read A LOT of them. 

coming Soon: MY Own Exodus

I'm working on a book about shedding religious beliefs, practices and communities that no longer serve people. There has been a lot of chatter in recent years about the Millennials leaving the church in droves, fleeing for their lives and checking the "Spiritual, Not Religious" box on surveys more than ever before. This sea change is something that needs a playbook. Survey results on a grand scale like this do not tell the whole story. Under those checked boxes and new identities, there is a lot of work, pain, decision making, and difficulty. 

I want to help tell that story, to provide people who wonder whether their religion or church is really providing them with the spiritual path that makes sense for them with a tool and some support for moving forward with their spiritual lives. 

If You've Had an Exodus, I need your help! 

I'm looking to gather and curate stories from people who have gone through a spiritual or religious transition in their lives. I'm interested in putting together an anthology of these stories, sharing the lessons you've learned along the way - sharing the heartbreak and the liberation that comes along with this journey. If you're willing to share, let me know! Fill out the form below and I'll get in touch with you to learn more! 

Thanks! You'll help a lot of people with this one.
