Thank you for dropping by. Consider yourself a welcomed guest. I hail from the South, and in addition to sweet tea and buttered biscuits, my favorite home-brewed tradition is one of gracious hospitality. I will do my best to ensure you enjoy your visit.
Why this blog exists…
In the fall of 2015, I wrote a short little book called, I BELIEVE. I finished it and put it aside for over a year while deciding if I was willing to share it with others, exposing my true identity and beliefs. Few knew of my deep spirituality and unwavering faith in the Almighty. Even fewer knew I was a big believer in the Law of Attraction. It felt more unsettling and risqué to divulge these personal mantras and truths to my circle of familiars, than with a stadium full of strangers. But slowly, one by one, I started to share.
The reactions of those I cared for and trusted ranged from unacknowledged silence (graciously preferred to ridicule), to “very nice sweetie” (think pat on the head), and to “thank you for teaching me something I didn’t know about you and didn’t know about the way of the world.” Once I overcame my fear of their reaction, I was able to embrace the reason why I wrote the book in the first place: not for my own gain but for the benefit of others. I want to teach, share, inspire, and encourage. And I fully realized I can’t genuinely, meaningfully, compassionately and wholeheartedly do that from behind a curtain, or even more poignant, a book or blog. In order to engage and have meaningful relationships, we have to put ourselves on the line. In order to touch and connect, we need to be vulnerable, exposed, and naturally imperfect. I’m willing and ready to share my faith and my flaws.
So while the retreat center I am creating, Oak Lea Lane, is not yet open for business, I am on a mission to be honest, open, and authentic with everyone in my circle, no matter how small it starts or how big it becomes. I want you to believe in yourself, in the love of the Almighty, and your ability to co-create. I want you to live the life, be the person, feel the love, have the profession, own the possessions you want. Because you are a beautiful being created from Love, with Love, and you are fully deserving and capable of all you want to be true.
You just need to BELIEVE.
