Being Congruent At Last


MI website logoI’ve been struggling for a while now. We all do it, mostly by getting hung up with the paradigms we put in place along the journey of our life. We hear something or see something and we begin to believe it. We let our minds hold onto the thoughts and our hearts lead us around under it’s influence. We limit ourselves by the thoughts of “What will so-and-so think?” or “How will this get in my way?”

Then one day, we hear something different; something that re-opens our eyes to who we really are and what we really are here in life to do.

Well, that happened to me as I’ve gone through the certification to be a Dream Builder Life Coach this past year. That process that I went through opened a corner of my mind to the possibility that I could authentically show up in the world as a “whole” person – both an intelligent, successful professional as well as a divinely connected spiritual person. It’s a struggle to try to segment our lives to be one or the other depending on the audience.

Today I decided I was strong enough to stop the struggle … simply stop.  My intention is to be congruent, consistent, and whole. I am a multi-faceted woman with many gifts, skills, talents, and passions. And I have the right and ability to authentically operate in the world in a blended, holistic way vs. a segregated and separate way.

WOW! How freeing it is to say it out-loud. How absolutely right and peaceful it feels in my heart to know that I can be me … all of me. Other people can choose to love it, hate it, like it, or lump it. And none of that changes me. Because I have this mighty shift in my attitude and my countenance, I know that it will create a shift in my success as well. I will attract more people who will seek out my services because they also want to be authentic and congruent. It’s a win-win in every way!

In the spirit of living out my new-found confidence I have updated my website as well. Feel free to browse around:  www.mightyinspiration.com

Be who YOU are – boldly and authentically and congruently YOU! And be blessed!

CELEBRATE!!


“Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement…
get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. 
Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. 
To be spiritual is to be amazed.”

~ Abraham Heschel

What a great quote this is – and an even greater philosophy on living! To truly be present to the miracle that life is may be the greatest gift of happiness we can give ourselves. Look around in your world today and seek for something to celebrate. Is it the smile in the face of a child that you longed to hold and love for so long? Is it the fabulous job that you wished and prepared for over years of learning and experience? Is it the health you have either by hard work or good choices? Is it simple pleasures like a lovely sunrise, I calm and relaxing dinner, a wish come true or warm bed to comfort you after a long and difficult day?

Whatever it is – big or little. Allow yourself to celebrate it. Find a great place to frolic and play. Dance when you are all by yourself, or better yet – be contagious and start a dance of joy in your family. Allow yourself to relish the abundant beauty that is your life. Get out the good china. Enjoy your favorite meal. Treat yourself to your favorite book or movie, bobble or bling. Write a thank you letter. Smile at a stranger. Pass you good fortune along in a random act of kindness.

You are spectacularly created. You are Divinely blessed. You are incredibly talented. CELEBRATE!!!

I celebrate YOU! Be blessed as you bless me too.

Are you shifting?


There are so many women like me, over 40, going through life changes.  This seems to be the time when we search for any spiritual direction as to who we are and what we are here to accomplish.  We start to wonder if we are having a crisis of identity or a spiritual awakening.  Who we were just a few years ago – wife and mother, just doesn’t exist for us today or in our near future.

Are you in that place?  Are you wondering what God has to say about this spiritual shift in your existence? He is the author of all truth and He lovingly provides revelation and answers.  To see what spiritual message from God is available for you, check out my book, MIGHTY INSPIRATION, Love Letters from God.

Feed your spirit for Easter!


I was just listening to my favorite Christian radio station online and realized that this is probably one of my favorite ways to “feed my spirit”. There is something about music that changes my connection to my emotions. It can mellow me out or it can fire me up in a 3 minute time frame. I never really thought about Christian music until I lived in a little town called Connersville, IN about 16 years ago. I’m not much of a country girl so the atmosphere was just ok. But I found in that little town a group of believers. We had weekly Bible study at a friend’s home and the house was always filled with the sounds of music – good, uplifting, Christian music. It started my love for this type of music. I listened to it all the time. Then when I came back to Cincinnati and life got busy and my kids turned to teens I listened to what they were listening to. I enjoyed some of it, was shocked by much of it. I certainly provided my “2 cents” worth of opinion on it and banned quite a few things. What a waste of music!

Last year when I had an incredibly spiritual experience and captured it in my book, MIGHTY INSPIRATION: Love Letters from God, I felt my heart shift back toward what feeds my spirit. Now, it’s virtually all I listen to. I’m thankful to have this station in my town. They sing me to and from work and fill my life with reminders of what is great and how we can all make a difference in this world. What a blessing.

So, for this Easter, as you go about your day enjoying the eggs, the candy, the kids, the beauty of spring I wish for you a blessing of music to feed your spirit!

May God bless you!
