‘The Unique Connection’

A seemingly simple experiment that portrays a powerful heart-warming look at the special bond between a mother and child. What a beautiful reminder at how special life is. It’s hard to believe this is an advertisement for Pandora Jewelry – well done! Definitely a must see… and see again…

I’m so blessed and thankful for all of the loving support that people have shown me towards my book and my dream of sharing it with children everywhere. I’m 2/3 of the way to reaching my goal of publishing this very special book. I’m so, so close, but I only have 6 days left in my campaign! That’s not a lot of time but I’m faithful that there are so many more parents who share the same love and inspiration for their children as I do for mine. If you haven’t given my book a look, please do — and if you like it please share! It doesn’t take a lot of people to make a difference, just a lot of LOVE!https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/217270085/life-is-sweet

This sweet video really puts the life of a mother into perspective. Definitely worth a watch!

Sweet dreams, with love.




Often after I put our kids to bed I find myself thinking an all too familiar question, “What thought or feeling do I think I’ve left them with today?” And it always comes down to one thing.

Of course I hope I’ve instilled some wonderful bit of wisdom. I hope there were memorable moments that have built them up. I hope they’ve laughed ever so deeply and uncontrollably. I hope I’ve helped to strengthen their faith. I hope they feel secure and confident. I hope there have endless hugs and kisses and warmth. I hope there have been many more words of kindness than responsibilities… But more than anything, I hope that they know how deep my love for them is. I hope they feel so unbelievably loved. Unconditionally. Deeply. Beautifully. Loved.

The love a parent feels for their children is something so special. The love I have for our children is what has inspired me to write this book. This is one of my favorite spreads. I can’t wait to share this with our children. If you’d like to learn more about “Life is Sweet” please visit :

I have been so overwhelmed by all of the support and wonderful response to the book I’m writing. Just a week in and we are already a little over 25% of the way to my goal of self-publishing. I can’t thank all of you enough who have so generously contributed and promoted Life is Sweet. Please keep sharing! The response has been amazing!


progress on my book: Life is Sweet



As many of you out there know, I’ve been hard at work on a very special children’s book called Life is Sweet. I’m about 3/4 of the way finished and the excitement is building. This really is such an important book for children. It will inspire them. It will touch their hearts. It will connect with their minds. It will reveal to them strength and mindfulness in themselves that they never knew. And hopefully it will impact their hearts. Since I’ve decided to self-publish, I’m now in the fundraising stage to get this beautiful book produced. I’ve created a site on Kickstarter.com that goes deep into the workings of it, the inspiration behind it, and the future that I hope and pray it will become. If you have a minute please take a look!
