Instead of seeing the rug being pulled from

under us, we can learn to dance on a shifting carpet.”     ~ Thomas Crum

I've missed all of you! It's been awhile since I've sent one of

these newsletters out. You probably deserved a break after

being bombarded in April with the Father Leo events, which

were a success! Since then, my energy has been dedicated to

exciting adventures that I want to share with you. Here

are some highlights:


NSA Member

In March, I applied and was accepted as a Professional Member of

the National Speakers Association. This happened with the gentle prodding of my Mastermind group and others.

Not wasting any time, I traveled to the headquarters in Tempe, AZ at the end of April to participate in a Presentation Skills Lab,

The Best of the Best...

Achieve Greater Levels of Mastery on the Platform.

In this interactive environment with truly amazing people I learned valuable tips on presence, pausing, storytelling, participation, persuasion

and humor. I was able to practice my material, receive feedback and begin to uncover my uniqueness as a speaker who talks about creating awareness in conversations, wellness, intuition, connection, perception and mindfulness.

Looking for a speaker?

Sedona, AZ

At the close of this 3 day learning event, I got in my cool, white rental car and drove 2 hours north to Sedona - a breathtaking, magical, mystical place.

In addition to being beautiful and serene, Sedona has long been known as a spiritual power center,

a spiritual Disneyland.

I explored the main energy vortexes by car, foot and horse. And in the process became uplifted and spiritualized!


It provided some much needed solitude to get in touch with what's important. What better place to quiet my thoughts than in the beauty of nature.




I'll be honest, committing to this trip to AZ was initially way out of my comfort zone. Exactly one of the reasons it felt right! One step after another of trusting the universe and embracing the uncertainties of life.


Uncertainty and stretching

yourself a little farther than

you thought possible is scary.

It's also when you grow

the most.

How can you stretch and

challenge yourself with the unknown?


My Birthday

I returned to Wisconsin on the eve of a very significant birthday (I'll let you guess which one). I resisted the strong urge to go into catch up mode. Instead, I slept in, went for a stroll, read a book on beauty in the hammock, went for a Harley ride with my brother, spent time with friends and family, and ate pizza. Everyday should be like this or at least every once in a while!



The last few weeks have

been spent creating,

editing and reediting my chapter on Perception that I'm writing for a very

exciting book. Creating Workplace Community:  Motivation is due out in August which means that I'm officially a published author!

It contains tons of insight

for solutions, ideas and philosophies for motivating

ourselves and others.

Some of the chapters are: Perception, Values, Goals, Environment, Leadership, Mentoring, Engagement, Empowerment, and Communication.

“Ah-Ha” Moments

The amazing synchronicity I'm sharing with you this time around

happened in Sedona of all places (imagine that). I thought you'd get

a kick out of hearing this one.

I arrived on a Sunday afternoon and went hiking until it got too dark.

My next mission was to find a place to stay. I checked a couple hotels before deciding to spend the night at the glamorous Hampton Inn.

Upon getting settled, I called my husband to let him know I was still alive (some were worried about this). He asked what my number was.

I looked down at the phone and began reading it to him. Amazingly, the last 4 digits were the same as Whole Life Visions, 715-421-4700. Gasp! If you don't believe me - here's the proof:

Father Leo Booth Events

Thanks again to those of you who attended the Father Leo Events in April at the Hotel Mead. What a powerful experience!

Much gratitude to Father

Leo and the staff at Spiritual Concepts - Anna Woo and Kien Lamb.

A little secret...

We couldn't leave town without first stopping at the Dairy State Cheese Factory in Rudolph.

Is it possible to have an addiction to Wisconsin cheese?
