Welcome! We are so glad you’re here.
In 2016, I found myself exhausted. I was traveling a lot for work, going through a multitude of infertility treatments, and fed-up with the “how to be a good Christian” culture. I had a huge house and what most people would call “The American Dream”, yet there was an unshakable emptiness inside of me. All of the years of living for other people’s dreams and expectations, and striving for perfection left me emotionally exhausted. I was having an identity crisis and I wanted someone who could relate to me; celebrate on my joyous days and pick me up during hard times (which this time mostly was). I needed someone who spoke the truth but didn’t always try to be right. I found bits and pieces of this in different places and people, but nothing really came together.
I realized that Women were made for connection and the biggest thing that breaks women apart is fear of isolation. That fear drives unhealthy competition, as we tear each other down when we should be relating to each other and sharing our struggles and joy.
So I got together some very powerful women to tell their stories. To encourage you, awaken what’s inside of you, pick you up, challenge you, and empower you to be the person you were created to be. But most importantly, to let you know that you are not alone. And while we may not know exactly what you’re going through and how you’re feeling, there is someone out there who does. And we want to ride this journey with you.
We hope this feels like family—a place where you can kick off your shoes, listen to real stories, and find people who love and understand you.
