Goddesses Share Their Secrets...

What is success to you?
Finding peace in my stillness and not losing myself when failure happens.

What is magic for you?
Being present for myself when it seems hard to show up. Something is enchanting about the act of kindness through self-care.

What is love for you?
Love, for me, is my family. Nurturing my almost nine-year daughter into a caring and compassionate person, being in tune with my husband, and being present for myself. Love shows up in my life in many ways—but currently, it looks a lot like what I’ve just shared. Family.

What is your beauty/health practice?
Eating well, moving my body—whether outside or in a class setting like yoga or Zumba, taking naps, using natural and sustainable bath, body and home products. Overall, I like to indulge in what makes me feel good inside and out.

What makes your spirit glow?
Doing what I love for a living. Being self-employed is such a courageous act of self-confidence. It lights my life up to be able to get up write books and create skin care goodies every day. There’s no better feeling than nurturing and illuminating your own life walk.

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?
Lots of journaling, reading, meditating, praying, and self-care. Oh, and cooking. :)

The journey through motherhood is a beautiful one—even when the days seem long, tiresome and not so awesome.
