How it Feels to Hold My Book for the First Time


Yesterday, a box came in the mail from our publisher, Avery Publishing with Penguin Random House. I stared at the box on my doorstep, and a jolt of electric excitement shot up from my gut. It’s HERE!! Oh my God. My book is here!

Of course, when I say “my book,” I mean “our book,” as I wrote it with co-author, Denna Babul and we are equally as elated, in shock, excited, nervous and coming-out-of-our-Jimmy-Choos with anticipation for the June 7th release of our book, The Fatherless Daughter Project: Understanding Our Losses and Reclaiming Our Lives. After writing the book for years, starting our non-profit, and traveling back and forth to New York, we thought this day would never come . . .

And the feeling is completely surreal . . . like, my-teeth-went-numb, surreal.

Placing the box with a thud on my kitchen counter, I took a deep breath, knowing I was about to hold our baby for the first time. I had to step over my dog to grab a knife to open the box, as he jumped around at my feet, hoping that I had just opened the front door to take him for a walk. Laughing, I patted him on the head, “You’ll have to wait, Tucker, I’ve got to get into this box!” Continue Reading…

Why You Are Perfect Just As You Are

When is the last time that you spoke positively about yourself when asked? When can you remember speaking lovingly about the beautiful person that you have become?

Are you ready to trust that your life is unfolding perfectly, and that you are finding your way according to divine guidance?


Today, can you say out loud that you are grateful for your life, proud of what you have done . . . and that you feel so blessed to be alive in this perfect time? If you turn this into a practice, you will see your life speed up its growth and blessings in miraculous ways.

Even if you know that you need to grow and make changes in your life as a maturing, spiritual being … you are PERFECT today, because you are on a divine path of growth and purpose. You are EXACTLY where you are supposed to be.

No matter what the choices of last year or yesterday have brought you, the lessons and the love are there for a reason, and they are exactly what you have needed to grow into a more perfect, Godly creation. Each step, each breath, and each interaction have been weaving together moment by moment, to co-create a life of joy and harmony with your authentic self. If you can lean closer to believing that you deserve miracles and joy, you will find that they indeed show up more often due to your alignment with your divine self. Continue Reading…

Creating Change Out of Chaos

“All great changes are preceded by chaos.” ~ Deepak Chopra

I came across this quote today and felt the power of it instantly.  Do you?

Think back across the past several years of your life and look at the one or two times that you have REALLY made a big change … a change that turned out to be for the better in your life.  Remember how it felt when you allowed that change in … was it merely a life adjustment, or did you have a meaningful transformation?


Now before you read on, raise a prayer of thanks for that chaos that created change and recognize its value in your spirit’s journey and in the divine unfolding of your life. You would not be who you are today without the experience, right?  Thank the Divine in you for bringing you to a place of openness and helping you have the courage and strength to get through that life altering transition.

Recognize your soul’s willingness and innate ability to find a way through the clouds and back into a renewed life.

Have gratitude for this GIFT.

Now rewind a bit in your mind’s eye and think about the time before that big transition took place.  See what was happening to promote change in your life before you decided to take a different path.  Odds are that something chaotic, uncomfortable, or even painful had been happening up until you made a new choice.  Fabulous change does not happen unless we are pushed to look at another way of doing things that makes us question our usual steps.
