About this Course
Life is sometimes tough on the hearts and souls of girls.
What if our daughters could learn the truth of who they really are before life makes them forget?
What if we could draw closer to them, helping them find their unique truth, through art and journaling projects….and that we could see them as a SOUL instead of a child..and they could see us as a SOUL instead of as a mother.
In this fun and interactive online class….daughters work and play with mothers in fun soul-crafting art projects.
Using creative, colorful, painty and collagy techniques….mothers and daughters remember that they are different and unique, but that they also play a very special and important role in each other’s lives that no one else could ever fill.
Join us as we experience this 3 week course with our own daughters and guide you all step by step through fun and meaningful projects that you will carry with you in your hearts for the rest of your lives.
The projects are designed to be adapted from beginner to advanced
— For mothers and daughters of any age
— 3 weekly lessons (tuition includes access to the classroom for 3 months)
About the instructor
I love being part of Brave Girls Club and sitting in this big worldwide circle of sisterhood....it has changed my life in all of the best ways. I am profoundly grateful for all of it, and I work hard to never take it for granted.
I'm an artist, teacher and entrepreneur. I have started and owned a few different companies and written many books. I have sold and licensed my art all around the world, which is what I had dreamed of doing since I was a little girl. In 2004, my husband sustained a traumatic brain injury which changed the direction of our lives dramatically and led me to my TRUE life's work.
Taking care of my husband and holding my family together while my business and the rest of my life fell apart all around me left me feeling broken in every way. I used art and journaling to heal the fragmented parts of my soul, and once I felt healed I wanted nothing more than to share what I had learned and how I had healed with my sisters all over the world. That's where Brave Girls Club came from...my curriculum is what I have used to heal myself and make my life joyful again.
I live in Star, Idaho where my husband and I have raised our 5 children. My husband made a miraculous full recovery which we consider a tremendous miracle that has prompted us to spend our life helping others out of the kinds of dark times we were in for so long. Our greatest treasure in life is our family, ...especially the grandchildren who have come to us! We plan to spend the rest of our lives doing more of what we are doing now....enjoying life, helping where we can, creating beauty, and spending as much time as possible with our beloveds...at home and all over the world. We appreciate every new day we are gifted with, and life is beautiful! So happy to be here with all of you!
