A quick note

Walk in Your Own Footsteps has enjoyed some pretty cool attention! I was featured on "Design your life with Reverend Kevin Ross and Friends." And... Nancy, of Nancy's bookshelf has requested a copy of the book to consider me for an interview on her radio show!

I love hearing from people who have found the principles and exercises helpful, so if that's you, please drop me a note and let me know!

Book signings, classes, flea markets, oh my

So much has been happening with the book that I haven't been on here much.

The next big event I'm planning is in McCloud for their big Flea Market on June 5th. I also have a book signing and free intro class scheduled at Journey Spiritual Center in Shingle Springs, CA. I'm so very happy to be meeting so many people who are on their road to creating the life they really want.

For me, art is a big part of that ideal life. For that reason, I've been working on art a lot lately. I'm really pleased to be offering a class for people to come and play with art with me! We'll be making tiny pieces of art called Artist's Trading Cards. Each participant with have the opportunity to create cards that reflect their journey and whatever inspires them! At the end of class, we'll see if anyone wants to trade. Otherwise, each person will take home their tiny treasure to be enjoyed and provide inspiration.

I would love to see hear from you if you're interested in coming to a class.

Upcoming Books Signing in Redding, CA and Folsom, CA

I'm so excited about the book signing at Bogbean Books in Redding, CA! The people I've talked to from the store are so nice, especially Janice! I'll publish some photos after I get home. Gosh, it's nice to be welcomed, isn't it? I'll have books, CD's and inspirational cards available for purchase.

The following week, I'll be at Heart to Hearth Gallery and Gathering Place,6611 Folsom-Auburn Road, Suite L (near Greenback) in Folsom, CA. The lovely owners, Kate and Marion have invited me to have a signing and share some goodies with you all. I'm also considering offering a class at Heart to Hearth, so if that sounds interesting to you, please let me know.

Also, I've scheduled a class for July 16th at the Journey Center in Shingle Springs, CA http://www.journeyspiritualcenter.com. I'm going to offer a one-hour informational class on the process of letting go of what hinders your personal growth while choosing and embracing what you truly want! There will also be books for sale at the class and I'll be available for signings as well as consultations after the informal class.

I hope to see you at one or more of these upcoming events!

BIG sign for book signings. :)

I've had so much fun creating this large sign to bring to book signings. this sign is about 3 feet wide and 5 feet tall! It is my hope that people would come visit me at shows and fairs. That's why I painted this. Once the paint cures, I varnish it, and that cures.... We'll hit the road!

Exciting changes with WiYOF

Hi, all! Last week was a very exciting week.

First, I've been working on a set of 30 beautiful cards that support the principals in the book. I selected 30 amazing photos from my collection and matched them up with each chapter to create a special deck that will inspire positive changes and support good choices.

Second, I visited Body and Hearth in Folsom. I talked with the owners Marion and Kate and we've scheduled a book signing along with an informational talk on April 30th. We are also planning a six-week long workshop that we'll schedule following the gathering. Please let me know if you would like to be a participant in the workshop.

With a week like that, I can't wait to see what next week brings.

Blaze your own trail!

I'm overjoyed that my book is helping people already! I've received emails, texts and talked many people who are going through changes and need a guide to help with the process. This is exactly why I wrote the book and with every person who is helped, I am more committed to getting it out to the world so that many people can find their feet on their own path to fulfillment!

I've been thinking about how we are all on our own path, lately. Even when we walk side by side with a partner, we are experiencing our lives so very differently. It can be a shock to discover that the people with whom we share our lives do not see things as we do. That we may be happy with circumstances and events that don't inspire the same feelings as those around us. This gives us the opportunity to be a blessing in the lives of others when we choose to acknowledge the difference and offer space to those we love to blaze their own trail, as we walk our path.

I hope that as you make changes in your life, you feel empowered to step out of the routine you may have developed for yourself.
