Helping you stay connected.
That’s it. My purpose. I’m at my best when I’m connected – to myself, those I love, and my purpose.
And that's why I'm here.
And that’s why I’m here.
In this crazy world of technology, we’re hyper-connected and yet feel alone and disconnected.
My heart began to realize this great need for connection when my first husband was dying. Eric had a brain tumor and his disease process did a strange thing to our connection.
In some ways, we lost connection – he couldn’t talk, couldn’t tell me what he wanted or needed.
But strangely, the unspoken connections grew during this time. There was a closeness that was hard to describe or understand. We developed a trust and intimacy from a new type of reliance on each other.
I realized how important my relationships were as I journeyed through those difficult days – with my family and friends, with God and faith, and with myself.
And I knew I wanted my life to count toward building strong relationships.
But then, somehow, I got disconnected from my purpose and need for connection.
It was so much harder to manage life’s twists and turns when I was disconnected from the most important things and people. Honestly, I didn’t handle things very well. I was discouraged and not entirely sure what was wrong with me.
Becoming clear again about how important connection is, has created clarity and focus. It’s connected me with my purpose again.
Losing Eric was a life-changing experience to say the least. I’m changed. Living life as a widow, learning to love again, exploring new interests and hobbies, traveling the world… all of these things have changed me.
The self that starts the journey isn’t the self that finishes.
I’ve had to reconnect with myself over and over as life changed me.
My way of connecting with others has changed too.
And my understanding of God, faith, and spirituality shifted, turned upside down, inside out, and now includes more questions than answers.
While I know that I thrive on connection, I know connection looks different at different times and with different people.
And I know that the world works best when we’re connected.
And that’s the ‘why’ behind this work.
I look forward to connecting,
