Spring Forward

Spring is one of my favourite seasons – I love the change that comes with spring, I love the idea of newness and growth, and I have truly come to appreciate all of the hope that spring brings. I can’t help but connect this season of change and growth and […]

Bossy Girls…

“I want every girl who’s told she’s bossy to be told instead that she has leadership skills.” These are the words of Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook. I believe this to be true – bossy girls become leaders – and I am living proof. This quotation reminds me […]

Saying Goodbye to Negativity

Goodbye negativity; hello happiness and joy! I read a recent Instagram post by #workoutbean that said this: “remove the negativity in your life. It’s amazing how long we live with things that weigh us down – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Sometimes, cutting out the bad in our lives isn’t the […]

“Perfectly Imperfect”

The push to be perfect is BIG in our society. We are taught we need to be beautiful, smart, social, active, fit, good at everything, and make it all look easy – as if we barely have to try. We see 300 digitally-altered, specially manipulated, made-to-be-perfect images every single day. […]

Raising Bold New Girls

  Raising Bold New Girls is my newest book and writing this book was a very “new” experience for me too! I have written several books, primarily focusing on equipping and empowering young girls. However, this year, I had so many memorable, authentic, and engaging conversations with parents, teachers, and […]

The Beauty of Your Dreams…

  “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” This quotation is by Eleanor Roosevelt and I love her sentiments because she encapsulates the essence of dreaming and how hopeful and beautiful dreams can be! I am a thinker and a dreamer and I am […]

“Like a Girl”

When did doing something “like a girl” become an insult? When I was little, my brothers would tell me I threw “like a girl”. And although I know they were trying to motivate me to throw stronger, faster, and better, at the same time, they were also implying I was […]

Everyday Extraordinary

Some days, I’m amazed at how extraordinary an everyday experience can be. Days when I am aware and present enough to notice the small but significant, ordinary things, I am able to see – white fluffy clouds that quickly float across the sky, a stranger stopping to give directions to […]
