Your soul is the most important thing about you...

I love life…

I love creating, pioneering, and using up energy at a rate of knots…

I know the whimsical wonder of releasing your soul to life’s purpose.

To leave a wake of making things bigger and better over time.

 

But I am also familiar with a broken soul.  I’ve broken mine and experienced the  impact of hard on my soul.  I have felt my soul break into a million pieces on many occasions wondering how on earth will I ever be able to utter those words again: “It is well with my soul…”.

 

 

My life has been a journey of trying to figure out this thing called my soul.

 

How do I keep my soul whilst pursuing purpose?

When the hard of life threatens to break my soul into a thousand pieces…how do I keep my soul?

If you are here it is probably because you’re a little like me…

Wanting more of your soul unleashed…

Wanting to learn how to keep your soul so its expression touches humanity…

Wanting to live life and love to the full.

 

 

A little about me…

I trained and worked as a social worker until 3 babies came to steal my heart. Two of those babies have now brought home two beautiful daughters in laws. Part of my MORE… who would have thought I would have received such a beautiful gift from my boys.

I married a finance man because I’m not good at that side of things and one of us had to be. He’s also the opposite to me – logical, patient, introverted, and get’s things right.

I became a pastor and a business woman of 3 businesses all at once…. which was a scary, hard and required my soul to stretch. In that space, I became good friends with hurry and hustle and learned that creativity has a speed all of its own…

Intoxicating…

Beautiful…

But sometimes costly unless I keep my soul.

 

Becoming a pastor and a business woman was part of my MORE, my sacred dreams and sacred spaces. I love the Tailrace Centre and Kids Paradise and all the little ways we send love on its way. I love Tailrace Community Church with all of its rich diversity of colour, different spiritual spaces, and the rugged beauty of different stories told. I love advocating and championing the rights of children. I have loved being part of seeing Bravehearts, Emily’s Voice and the CAP Debt Centre get established in Tasmania. I love supporting women in India.

 

I’m not good at running slow through life. I struggle with hurry and hustle and taking days off.

 

I don’t think my heart will ever join the crowd who don’t dream, imagine or pioneer.

 

Who doesn’t want to reach out to love with courage and imagination?

 

I don’t want to accept the invitation to live in the grandstand of life and become a spectator watching life happen.

 

I want MORE.    

I want to be focused.

I want to have great big visions and dreams.

I want to live a life full and overflowing with LOVE.

But I’m learning… in all of the MORE my soul needs some keeping and I think you’re here because you know that too.
