I am proud to be an educator and consultant for Beautycounter, a B-Corp company on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. The lack of regulation in the personal care and cosmetic industry is astounding and it is harming our health in very serious ways. We need more voices to join up on our mission. If you want to put your passion to purpose while being generously compensated, then I would love to start a conversation with you about what it means to be involved in the #saferbeauty tribe that is Beautycounter.

STRONG, NOT SKINNY.
The message I want to teach my daughter is that I believe I am beautiful.
Do I always believe that? No, my mind manipulates my emotions all the time. But I know it to be truth. I am in the constant pursuit of training my mind to be strong in truth.
Mom, do you want to be skinny?
No, I want to be strong.
WHAT DOES STRENGTH MEAN TO YOU?
Strength to me is:
…the ability to slow down and savor daily life
…the mental fortitude it takes to put on a good attitude every day
…the pounding my legs can take in my pursuit of physical endurance
…the humility to know that every day is a day in which I can learn from others
…the pursuit of personal empowerment
…the mindset of inner confidence
…the patience in walking through seasons of life
…the pursuit of excellence rather than perfection
…the ability to love even when it hurts
…the practice of generosity and grace, even to those who don’t reciprocate
…the act of forgiveness
…the walk of walk in trusting in God’s plan and in His abundance
TWO WAYS TO PURSUE STRONG:
* Start making strength training a priority.
