I couldn't wait to take my daughters (and son) to see Wonder Woman and I finally did last Friday night. At $12.50 a ticket, it was worth...every...cent. I think we all left the cinema feeling like we could accomplish anything! I believe movies depicting women as centra...

This is what I did with the kids this past New Years. We wrote what we wanted to say good-bye to from 2016 on paper boats and released them in Lake Pinecrest. Because letting go of what you DON'T want makes space for what you DO want. YOU get to decide what your life w...

Our kids have been on fire lately, continually feeling the fear and doing it anyway. Our 7-year old made it to the NFL's Regional Punt, Pass & Kick Tournament, while our 9-year old dominates on the soccer field every weekend. Our littlest one is competing in his first...

We've started a new module in our workshops called the Glasses Game and I'm finding myself using it alot with my own kids too. It's about perspective and the many ways we see the world. In the game, girls or mother/daughter pairs take turns telling eachother all about...

MyGirl Coaching held its first Confidence Workshops last weekend and by all counts they were a total success! My daughter helped me lead the charge and I only hope that participants learned as much as we both did from the experiences. That's not to say everything went...
