About this Course
It is sort of cliche to say “BE TRUE TO YOU” isn’t it, friend? It is certainly a phrase that is over used, just like many of life’s greatest truths are. Sometimes important words are so over used that we stop really thinking about what they mean and especially what they mean to us in particular.
This lesson is about really seeing yourself RIGHT NOW. Looking at who you are RIGHT NOW and you have always been as well as who you have become. This lesson is about acknowledging and accepting and LOVING all of the parts of yourself, RIGHT NOW, wherever you find yourself on your journey.
Please don’t get caught up in the cliche of the title of this lesson. Please REALLY think about what it means to be be true to who YOU are. To be able to be true…we must first figure out WHO we are so that we can be true to her. This is a lot of important soul work, and it is work that not many are brave enough or disciplined enough to do. You are here, and you are so so soooo important, important enough to take the time to really investigate on a soul level to figure out exactly who YOU are.
It is so important to give ourselves the love and grace of not comparing our lives, or our selves, or our attributes or our circumstances to those of anyone else. Comparing is the greatest barrier to figuring out who we are and who we are meant to be. It is such a distraction to investigate the lives of everyone else to try to figure out what our own lives are supposed to be. We will never find ourselves by looking at others. We will only find ourselves by quietly, patiently, lovingly and mercifully looking and listening to ourselves and our deepest truth. It is so worth the work to be able to live with such authenticity. The greatest freedom comes when we finally take total and complete responsibility for ourselves, our lives and who we were created to become. Taking time to remember, restore and work toward our truest selves will bring great rewards to our lives and to the lives of all those that we love. To be a woman who knows who she is and who walks confidently in that truth is the greatest gift we can give to others. Please be you.
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!
