My One Word for 2016 and Invite to Connect

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.  Hebrews 10:23-25

The verse above is what I’m committed to in the coming year with God, my family and with YOU.

My word for 2016 is Connect! Why? Connection is something I tend to shy away from due to past hurts from men and women. It’s a place of vulnerability for me to create deep connections because of the risk of being hurt again.

My heart says, “Yes connect with that person” but my mind says, “No they aren’t safe.”

I want to take more risks in relationships in the new year because I’ve seen the fruit of it when I do. Yes, I have plenty of experiences or what I call “evidence” to show that I can make investments in relationships with healthy boundaries and see beautiful fruit arise.

Not sure if you can relate playing it safe in relationships or life but I want to invite you to join me in stepping into new and possibly uncomfortable experiences in the new year.

Why? Because when you do you will see God show up in ways you might have never experienced.

I invite you to join me for what I’m calling CONNECT Groups!

They are like mastermind groups where 6 women will gather every other week to create intention, support, encouragement and accountability so they can step into more of God in all areas of our lives.

Here is how it works and how to apply for a spot:

  • There will be 2 groups – a morning and an evening group.
  • Each group will have no more than 6 women in each. (12 spots total)
  • The groups will run for 90 days then reevaluate.
  • Webcast will last 90 minutes with each participant have amble time to share and be supported.
  • Groups will meet every other week.
  • Also includes email or text support with me and your connect sisters between calls to keep you moving forward.

If you are interested in making a real impact in 2016, then email me back with your interest to be part of a CONNECT group and I’ll send you a short form to fill out to apply.

Truly, I want to connect with women this year that are tired of living mediocre and desire to make a “real” impact at home, in their community and at work. If this sounds like what you want to create in the new year, then message me at and let’s chat.

I will host an intro call on January 12, 2016 at 8:15 pm EST to share more details on the Connect groups and what to expect. So again if you are interested, please email me back now because the call details will only go to those that have applied. Thanks!

By the way, if you desire more hands-on support, consider individual coaching. I have just a couple spots open. Email me at now for more info and to setup a time to see if we are a fit.

Thanks for connecting with me today here on my blog and I look forward an even more connected 2016!!!
