So here we are…

40 Days Lighter Cover

“Prior to taking my 40-day journey to living lighter, I became intensely and unsettlingly aware of a heaviness I couldn’t shake, in my body, mind, heart and life. I felt weighed down, and struggled to move forward into the next season of my life, despite sensing the blowing and stirring of the winds of change.

The expression “caught between a rock and a hard place” couldn’t adequately describe the constricting pressure I felt. I began to see myself as small – and shrinking by the day – in comparison to the magnitude of my life’s circumstances. Being a wife, mother, educator, leader, believer, all felt like too big a task for someone as insignificant, undisciplined, and ill-equipped, as I saw myself.

The truth is – I was very right, and very wrong, all at the same time!”

∼ Excerpt from 40 Days Lighter: A Devotional Journey for Women Determined to Live Free!

BIG Beautiful Birthday News!

happy birthday

Today is my birthday and I couldn’t be more excited to share some amazing news with all of you, my phenomenal family, friends, readers and supporters!

Earlier this year, I embarked on an ongoing journey to a healthier life – spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. I have spent countless hours reading, reflecting, praying, journaling, and pondering what do with the gems I discovered along my path to living lighter.

I am thrilled to announce that I have written my first book – 40 Days Lighter: A Devotional Journey for Women Determined to Live Free! This 40-day devotional, born out of my own 40 day blogging journey, is designed to lead the reader through a reflective process, encouraging each of us to drop the unnecessary weight and baggage that can hinder our steps towards purpose.

And it gets better! While the book has not yet been released, I wanted to give my followers a gift on my birthday.

Join the StepIn2Purpose mailing list, and you will receive a FREE download of the first 5 days of my new devotional, in the opening section entitled “BREATHING ROOM”.

The first of eight parts in this 40-day journey will lead you through insightful and deeply personal contemplation, coupled with scriptural application, to help you make space for your spirit to breathe again!

Join me on this incredible journey, and stay tuned for more information as the book release date approaches!
