    Sandra Burling - from Women Helping Women Beadwork & Vinnie Lillie

    Sandra Burling - from Women Helping Women Beadwork & Vinnie Lillie

    This episode is definitely worth the listen! Sandra is the founder of a program called Women Helping Women Beadwork, where she promotes and sells jewelry created by incarcerated Indigenous women.

    Sandra has gone on an amazing journey of personal connection and growth - and has given these women the opportunity to celebrate their culture, learn valuable skills and earn money for their work.

    We are also joined by Winnipeg motivational speaker, Vinnie Lillie, who provides valuable insight into the critical need to allow these women to continue making their jewelry despite being incarcerated.

    Please listen and share - as just recently, Sandra and her friends have been prohibited from running their business - which has been heartbreaking to these amazing women, to say the least.

    NOTE - my microphone didn't work great during this podcast - but you can hear Sandra and Vinnie very clearly!

    Review of the amazing book, A Mile at a Time - the inspiring journey of Mark Macy & His Family

    Review of the amazing book, A Mile at a Time - the inspiring journey of Mark Macy & His Family

    If you are into running, biking, triathalon, adventure racing or just cool stuff in general - this is the book for you. If you have a loved one who is going on a journey with Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia, this is the book for you!

    In their memoir, A Mile at a Time, Mark and Travis Macy share their love for adventure racing and extreme sports as they navigate Mark's diagnosis with Alzheimer's Disease. In today's episode, I share my review of this incredible story of love, friendship, resilience, and courage.

    This is an especially meaningful book and episode for me, as when I watched the Prime series, World's Toughest Race (where Mark and Travis compete), I was going on my own journey with Dad as he was faced with Dementia. This book and tv series are a wonderful reminder of the magic of love and the special bond between friends and family - none of which are diminished with time, age, or illness.

    This is not a depressing episode of loss on grief, but rather one of hope and inspiration. I hope you enjoy it. :)

    Special Mother's Day Interview with My MOM!!

    Special Mother's Day Interview with My MOM!!

    The beautiful thing about interviewing my mom is that you never quite know what will come out of either one of our mouths or where the conversation will go! Today's Mother's Day episode did not disappoint haha! We cover a lot of ground here, from death by electrocution to strippers, to shooting snakes and practical advice for mothers!



    Despite my audio being a bit on the crap side, this is a fun little episode that might give you a few giggles and a little advice for motherhood too!



    Thanks Mum! Love ya!
