A Life-Enhancing Tool

  • The Power of Journaling

has been something that I have been wanting to blog about for a while now! Why? Well, because journaling has been a huge part of my life since my high school days! Whenever I meet up with high school girls that are going through a tough season of life or a difficult situation, I encourage them to journal about it. Now before all of the guys totally check out of this post… let me explain! Journaling isn’t a DIARY!! It’s so much more than that! For me, journaling started as a way to document my life.

2014 Speaking Schedule

  • WPPI - Where are We?!

it’s going to be a busy week when your husband has to create a chart showing your schedule! We’re so excited about being in Vegas for WPPI! I’m trying to work on my talks and not let the nerves get to me. This is the second half of our trip and it feels like we’ve been gone for WEEKS! A 15 day trip to multiple conferences is no joke!! At least we’re surrounded by friends from all over the country… and a few Canadians:)… it makes the long trip fun and entertaining! So the longer we’re out here, the more I realize just how thankful I am for the friendships that I have formed in this industry.

A Recap

  • United 2014

to believe that our trip is only half way done. We arrived in Vegas last night and we’re gearing up for a great day of coaching today! This is when I’m realizing just how thankful I am that I’m not by myself. Having Michael with me makes everything 100x easier and I can’t help but remember what it used to be like. There were two years where Michael flew out to Vegas for WPPI for literally 48 hours because he had a full time job and were constantly battling to see each other and keep this business moving forward. I’m so grateful that we’re officially a team these days!! So! How was UNITED you ask? Well let me tell you!
