Women Elevating Women

Has anyone else’s life changed dramatically since we can see the sun at 5pm? 🙋🏽‍♀️ It’s amazing how a little more light at the end of the day and warmer temps can make us feel more hopeful and even joyful. The power of small changes…


March 8th was International Women’s Day. As a graduate of a women’s college and mom of 3 daughters, I often think about what we can do to celebrate, empower, and elevate other women. I also think about how I can raise a son who will do the same and make the world a safer place for women.


Elevating and empowering women starts in our own circles. How do we talk about other women with other women, in our own families, and in our workplaces? How do we react to women who trigger our own insecurities? Do we look for ways to use our opportunities to advance other women doing the very same thing we do? Do we find opportunities to encourage the women around us with a kind word of affirmation?


When we do, not only does it empower us, but it creates a society where women become a formidable force! 🔥🔥


If you believe in raising strong women, you need to know my new friend Chelsey Goodan, author of the new release and bestselling book Underestimated: The Wisdom and Power of Teenage Girls. If you have a young woman in your life, this book is invaluable.

Her book has been praised by Oprah Daily and Reese Witherspoon’s “Hello Sunshine,” and Chelsey took some time to chat with me on the podcast. What I realized in our conversation was that there were parts of my own inner teenager that needed to be healed so that I can send my teenagers out into the world in love and power. This is a book that you need to read with a pen in hand. Listen to our conversation here.

Faith Focus

For those of you who are spending more time reflecting for Lent, I encourage you to think about how Jesus treated women. He stopped to listen to them. He healed those who were labeled untouchable and insignificant. He saw beauty and worthiness in those who were not considered valuable by society, and ultimately used them to be the most powerful witnesses in the world and whom we still speak about today. We often say he was the first feminist.


What I ask you today is... Do you look at yourself the way Jesus looked at women? Are you thinking of yourself the way you would want your teenage daughter (or son) to think of themselves? If not, what has to change? Walking in your own worthiness is a faith practice, too. 


As I approach my 48th birthday next week, I am spending more time reflecting, more time enjoying the beauty around me, more time appreciating those I love, and more time letting go of what really doesn’t matter. The best way you can celebrate with me is by doing the same in your life this week. 


Sending much love to you.
