7 Ways I’m Working with Gratitude Daily to Keep My Fear in Check  

Oh, fear. I naively thought that once I made peace with my fear in 2016, I was good for life. But fear is inside of us. It’s a part of our egos that we cannot live without. We need our egos to keep us safe when we’re in true life-or-death situations. On a daily basis of living, most of us allow fear to drive our decisions. We find ourselves tip-toeing through life, just to get to death. And as I’ve newly transitioned from my comfortable corporate job to fully honoring my soul assignment — which…


Ohhhh, just some major life happenings to share with you...

I have much news to share with you. For years, I’ve felt like I was sitting on a mountain of information to pass along to you, but I didn’t have the capacity to commit to my outreach as deeply as I desired. Today is different. Today, I can breathe fully for the first time in a long time. Today, a heaviness, which I didn’t even fully understand was there, is now lifted. I feel lighter. I feel locked in alignment. I am excited. I am activated. And I am feeling alive and oh so ready. Let me give…


5 Tips to Reset Your Body

Goodness, it feels like I've been on a perpetual vacation this year. I've traveled more in 2017 than I ever have in my life. And then December has been one trip, one holiday social event after the other. SO, yes, I've had lots of fun, shared many laughs, stayed up way too late and experienced all sorts of exceptional tastes. And while I've attempted to hold tight to many of my nourishing habits, let's face it, it's darn near impossible to stay totally true to this lifestyle when you’re on the…

My Most Powerful Moment in 2016: Meeting My Fear

One of my biggest moments in 2016 was meeting and truly getting to know - to understand – my fear. Yes, you read that right. I finally stopped to listen and hear what my fear had to say. And then, my fear listened to what I had to say. It was a moment. And for the first time in my adult life, I learned to understand my fear in a respectful and loving way – so we could finally quit the name calling, the mind games, the passive aggressiveness, the drama, the scare tactics, the hiding, and the…

Why It’s Important to Own the Power of Your Words

One of the hardest points in my life was not being able to breastfeed my son. Almost everyday for 7 months, I tried and failed. I pumped around the clock to give my son what I knew was best for him, but it wasn’t enough. Supplementing was a necessity. Being holistic minded, I sought out the best nourishment possible given my situation, which included donor milk from like-minded mamas and making my own raw milk formula. Even though I was grateful for my knowledge and grateful for my options, I…


My Secret to Keeping that Spark Alive: 8 Steps for Manifesting with Your Partner

My husband and I stayed up until 2am last night on another one of our dream dates… Like with any high vibration conversation, time passes by and it’s the middle of the night before you know it! Here we are, just hours until the New Year, tucked away in a little cabin (in the middle of nowhere in snow covered northern Michigan), cozied up to a beautiful fire with note-pads, pens and wine in-hand (and our little one sleeping just a room away). And after one of those more stressful parenting days…

9 Kitchen Tools That Make a Nourishing Lifestyle All the Easier

Cooking [from scratch] is “the single most important thing we could do as a family to improve our health and general well-being.” – Michael Pollen I often get asked by clients and friends something along the lines of… “How the heck do you stay true to real food with all the rest of your ever changing, everyday commitments?" The truth is, years ago I embraced a mindset shift. I am fully committed to living a lifestyle rooted in nourishment. To me, there’s just no other way. This is without a…

Graduation from First Year Naturopathy Program: My Class Speech

On August 21st, following two days of intense testing, I completed the first year of the Naturopathic Doctorate program (yay!!!) and had the honor to address my class as part of graduation. This is such a proud moment for me that I wanted to share with you, dear friend. After I thanked my class for choosing me to say a few words and thanked the amazing and talented instructional and support staff, here’s what my soul had to say with the beautiful women of my class: “You know - Each of us…

Manifesting Maggie: A sweet little story about trusting your soul...

I believe in praying like you’re in charge. Because I believe you are. I believe in the power of co-creation and manifesting what you want in life. From the really big things to the not so big things. No matter the scale, I feel so incredibly connected to my soul when a thought or a desire is realized. In my experience, manifesting doesn’t just give you want you want, it brings you what you need in a beautiful, unpredictable way. My story about manifesting a cat (yes, a cat!) is a perfect…

My Top 7 Ways to Treat a Bee Sting Naturally

What would you do today if you were Oprah? I read this question in some self-book years back and it’s always stuck with me… A thought provoking way to help you gauge how you to choose to spend your time. (After all, we really do get to choose what we do. Even if we don’t wanna admit it.) I thought about that this weekend as I spent almost all my time pulling weeds from my flower beds, picking wild blackberries and cleaning (and then cleaning some more) - all with my three-year-old at my……
