NO more entries will be accepted. Winner(s) will be announced at appx 12pm HST.

The revolution continues, and I want YOUR family, YOUR business, YOU to be a part of it.

Back in February, high above all the noise and rumpus that is Las Vegas, NV, I found myself in a quiet  room, filled with the most exceptional group of women I have ever met. These women KNOW that happy families don’t just happen; they are MADE. This group of women understands that every single choice they make as mothers, is a significant one. These women have changed the course of my life, and continue to do so each and every day. They’ve put in the smart, focused, and intentional work, and every one of them will tell you that their lives, families, businesses, SELVES are better because of it. I’m so thankful for their examples that inspire me to step into my own life, business and family with more resolve, passion and joy! Some of them won scholarships for nursing, others mastered new specialties, etc.

No matter where you are in your business and life, if you are a mother and an entrepreneur, this workshop is for you. If you’re willing to put in the smart work, The Breathe Intensive WILL revolutionize your life from the ground up!

I’m dying to see you in Phoenix! I know you’re dying to be there too, because you know that the only other Breathe Intensive currently on the books for 2011, will be on an island waaaaaay out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean! Mainlanders, this is your last chance!

“O how great the plan of our God!” (2 Nephi 9:13)

Because of Him, the grave has no victory. Because of Him, this death, is “temporal, [and] shall deliver up its dead.” (2 Nephi 9:11)  !!!!!!!!!!!

When I woke up yesterday morning, Easter morning, I felt hope. For the first time in weeks, hope, peace and promise. And I knew, I KNOW, that it all happened, just as the scriptures say. He was born, lived the perfect life, atoned for our every sin, died for us on Calvary’s Hill, and on the third day. . .He rose again!

Forgiveness. Love. Friendship. Belonging. Life. . . all gifts from a loving God.

LIFE. That is the greatest gift of all. Because of Him, one day, I know we will be together again. Forever. And that promise moves me through each day with happiness and love, even when my heart is brittle from sorrow and pain.

I can never repay Him for what he has given me. I can however show him how very, very grateful I am… through the living of each and every moment of every, single day.

These images, and this family, make me so ridiculously happy. Chris and Richie have been best friends since before I entered the picture, and I’ve adored Treesje since the moment I met her. We don’t see the Bennett’s much. They live in Utah and we live in the middle of an ocean a zillion miles away. BUT whenever we DO get together, it’s like we haven’t skipped a beat. We dream of the day when they show up on this rock and decide to call it home. Chris and Treesje, we love you! Enjoy!

This is my beautiful sister in law, Chelsea, and her wonderful new (ish) husband, Ben. I don’t know that you could find two more exceptional people if you searched the world over. They are kind, generous, open, loving, hilarious and completely and totally mad over each other. I love you Cha Cha. Enjoy.
