Thirty years ago tonight, my life changed completely. Because thirty years ago tonight, Jesus beckoned me to follow him and I said yes, willingly, fearlessly, naively, excitedly, feeling that I had found the thing that I had been always looking for but never knew was missing.

And my life has never been the same since.

And to commemorate thirty years of trying to walk with Jesus in all my frailty and messiness, I’m kinda having a party, but not the sort of party that happens in a home or a restaurant. No, not this time.

Because Jesus has given me so much…life, breath, healing, wholeness, every good and perfect gift I have ever received has been from him, so I want to give something back.

And I’ve decided to give back by hosting an online Trades of Hope party.

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time or follow me on Facebook, you know I’m a huge fan of Trades of Hope. They are this amazing organization working all over the world, women empowering women to bring light, to do good, to provide for and protect their families.  It’s a lovely, lovely thing.  And I want to share it with you.

So I am inviting you to join me in celebrating life and faith, in being grateful for all that Jesus has done for us, and in reaching out to women all over the world and coming alongside them and telling them that their lives and children and work matters to us.

Sidenote: if you have been looking for a way to add income to your own family while being able to work from home and – crazy huge bonus – change the world in tangible and meaningful ways, connect with one of my best friends, Erika Solgos, and she’ll be happy to tell you more about what an amazing experience this could be for you and your family.

Thank you for your support over the years, and thank you in advance for helping me celebrate this milestone in my journey. I’m excited to see how much good we can do together over the next few days!


Life isn't always how we want it. When change seems elusive, and we're stuck in old routines, a gentle push or some self-reflection can make a difference. Let these questions be that nudge to get you moving.
