Truly, I have the most wonderful launch team--sweet moms like you and me, who were willing to put a lot of time into helping me get the message of my new book into the hands of as many women as possible. We all have a heart to encourage and come along beside. I have asked  what some of the issues and convictions are in reading through Own Your Life. Here are three sweet friends sharing their struggles in the midst of life and how they are learning to cope. Enjoy! Sally From Misty, Krasawski, mom, wife and great writer. Hers is the beautiful Heart poster above. As we passed cups of tea around my living room discussing Chapter One of Own Your Life this week, my sweet friend’s baby lay on ... Keep Reading

"Mom, I really think God wants me to be in the film industry and become an actor, or writer or both and tell great stories that inspire people." At almost 18, Nathan had been working on dreams since he was a little boy. To me, his dream seemed like a little boy who wanted to be the quarter-back of a professional football team--it would pass, it was not possible. Yet, the Holy Spirit gently touched my heart and said, "Believe in his heart dreams. He is mine. I may have put them there." And so I prayed, supported, encouraged, helped, and by faith and trepidation, Clay and I let him go to New York at 19 for a year at the New York Film Academy where he had actually won a partial ...
