Great reflection on our childhood and our parenting skills from Brené!

Whether you are a parent or not, Brené Brown's Wholehearted Parenting Manifesto is a moving reflection of the kind of parenting most of us wish we’d had. After you’ve had an opportunity to read the full manifesto, reflect on your own childhood. Even if unarticulated, which promise were your parents or caregivers able to live out most fully for you? Which commitment were they least able to make or fulfill in your childhood? Which statement best reflects how you are trying to live as an adult with the people you care about?

Read the full manifesto in our daily meditation:


Great rumble language! When you are face down in the arena of life, what story are you making up?

During hard conversations, when I feel myself reaching for my favorite armor (perfectionism, anger, being the knower, trying to control, emotional intensity, getting critical), I try to remember that the antidote to armoring up is staying curious.

These are a few of my favorite questions and sentence starters.

Wise words from Brené Brown.

Timeline photos 03/06/2019

This really spoke to me as a Life Coach. Couch to 5k Lent. One baby step at a time and day by day. Entering into the suffering, death and sacrificial love of Jesus knowing that Resurrection is on the other side! Drawing closer to Christ through His grace and not our sheer willpower. Here we go!

I would like to humbly offer that many of us do Lent wrong. (Raises hand over here.)
We expect that tomorrow we will be different people. We will give up chocolate or coffee, sugar or social media, wine or whining, and it will go well! We will become peaceful and patient, spiritual and saintly, able to achieve best intentions with sheer willpower. Maybe a few minor bumps along the way, but mostly we will become the people that we always meant to be.
Starting tomorrow.
What if we tried the opposite? What if we expected to fall - and fall HARD - but we built failure into our expectations? What if we saw Lent as less of a marathon and more of a couch-to-5K? What if we gave it to God rather than trying to triumph in self-control?
This year, I'm trying to flip the Lent I always have. The Lent you might recognize from your own life? The one that bursts with a bang of best intentions tomorrow & fizzles to a frustrated slump by the end of week 2. (Ok, fine. Week 1.) The “I failed at Lent. Again.” Lent.
This year I’m starting slow instead. Tomorrow I'm going to be the same me. I'm just going to try to do a little bit - fasting, praying, giving alms. The next day, a smidge more. Next week maybe I'll have made a little progress. Maybe not. This hard season is about humility, after all. But I’ll try to keep going. Keep growing.
Lent is a long preparation for Easter. It's not an overnight sensation, an instant transformation, or a self-improvement project. It's holy time to remember ourselves back into the life and love of God. It’s a journey to the end, all the way to the end.
We don't have to do it right. (Although we can give up tired versions of trying to do it wrong.) All the ways we'll be changed by Lent’s end will be ways we can't even imagine now.
But God is here, and we're trying to show up, and good things always happen with that combo.
Ash Wednesday to Easter.
Slow and steady, not all at once.
Give yourself the gift of a Lent that grows. See what graces God is waiting to overflow.


From Rising Strong:

Research participants who shared stories of shame around religion had less in common than most people guess. No specific denomination has emerged as more shaming in my work; however, there is a strong pattern worth noting.

Over half of the participants who talked about experiencing shame in their faith histories also found resilience and healing through spirituality. The majority of them changed their churches or their beliefs, but spirituality and faith remain important parts of their lives.

They believed that the sources of shame arose from the earthly, man-made, human-interpreted rules or regulations and the social/community expectations of religion rather than their personal relationships with God or the divine.

Our faith narratives must be protected, and we must remember that no person is ordained to judge our divinity or to write the story of our spiritual worthiness.

“For me, God is the one who calls me the Beloved, and I have a desire to express to others how I try to become more fully who I already am.
“If it is true that we not only are the Beloved, but also have to become the Beloved; if it is true that we not only are children of God, but also have to become children of God; if it is true that we not only are brothers and sisters, but also have to become brothers and sisters . . . if all that is true, how then can we get a grip on this process of becoming? If the spiritual life is not simply a way of being, but also a way of becoming, what then is the nature of this becoming?”
― Henri J.M. Nouwen, Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World

Getting ready for a New Year!

If you’re doing the difficult work of changing yourself; keep going. It’s worth it. You’re worth it.⠀⠀

Everyone is talking about the changes they’ll make in 2019, but change is uncomfortable. It’s hard. It’s rare. Most changing takes place when all the other options aren’t working. Most change happens because we hit rock bottom or our circumstances have forced us to change. Our hope at Onsite is to help guide people towards change that makes them emotionally healthy well before hitting rock-bottom.
So if you’re working to change yourself; keep going.
It’s brave.
It’s important.
It’s all we can actually do.


Your self talk is key to living a wholehearted life! Let’s go 2019!


As we get ready to enter into the beauty of the Christmas season, sharing some wise words from a fellow life coach!! Christmas is in the heart. 🎄❤️

Christmas doesn’t just happen. You have to make it. I’ve told my kids that as they’ve gotten older. Any mom knows that Christmas takes work. But making Christmas happen isn’t just about shopping, wrapping, baking and entertaining. Working at making Christmas is working on my heart to accept what each Christmas brings to me. It means seeing people the way Jesus sees them, not the way I would want them to be. It means serving beyond clearing dishes ... serving by extending a conversation or holding your tongue with a grumpy sales clerk. It means rocking a tired toddler having a meltdown. It means letting go of perfection. It means overlooking an offense and not getting your way. It means whatever God has laid upon your heart that will help bring “peace to men on earth” for your little world. Sit and listen to Jesus today. Soak Him in then go make Christmas happen!


So grateful for Brene Brown’s wisdom and looking forward to bringing her work into 2019 to motivate others to show up, be seen and live brave!!

Every holiday season, as I think about my own life and reflect upon what my family and what many of the people around me are going through right now, I’m reminded that struggle doesn’t take off for the holidays. As a lover of Christmastime, my mantra has become “the magic is in the mess” and I always like to post a little love note to myself and our communities.

We need to be kind with ourselves and remember that the gremlins don’t go on vacation. Checks bounce, chemotherapy appointments are scheduled, interventions are planned, relationships keep unravelling, being alone feels even lonelier, parents negotiate who will have the kids on Christmas morning, and the “never enoughs” are in full swing.

As I prepare to spend the next few days with my family and friends, my goal is to practice love and gratitude with the special group of folks who keep showing up and loving me, not despite my vulnerabilities and imperfections, but because of them.
I'm grateful for our community. For your generosity and the respectful way that we move forward together!

Blessings, Brené

This is so true. Trying to go deeper with this during Advent and look at my choices with time. What about you?

Your choices control your calendar a lot more than your circumstances do. Find out how to accept responsibility for your time so that you can make the most of each day in today’s devotional.


Love Brene! Getting certified in her new Dare to Lead program for businesses over the next month!

Bring your whole story to the table. The good. The bad. The triumphs and missteps. The world is craving that version of you. The real you.
Brené Brown is such an important voice for our world right now. Thanks for the work you do, Brené!


Getting ready for Advent and waiting with anticipation for Jesus! Going to try a few of these....what about you?

Presence before presents and then gifts, no gifts, some gifts … you decide. If you decide you want to give gifts without adding clutter, here are a few things that aren’t really things:

Beautiful words on love today....

"To put it another way, what I let God see and accept in me also becomes what I can see and accept in myself. And even more, it becomes that whereby I see everything else. This is why it is crucial to allow God and at least one other person to see us in our imperfection and even in our nakedness, as we are—rather than as we ideally wish to be. It is also why we must give others this same experience of being looked upon in their imperfection; otherwise, they will never know the essential and utterly transformative mystery of grace. This is the glue that binds the universe of persons together. Such utterly free and gratuitous love is the only love that validates, transforms, and changes us at the deepest levels of consciousness. It is what we all desire and what we were created for. Once we allow it for ourselves, we will almost naturally become a conduit of the same for others. In fact, nothing else will attract us anymore or even make much sense. Can you let God 'look upon you in your lowliness,' as Mary put it (Luke 1:48), without waiting for some future moment when you believe you are worthy?" Read more from Richard Rohr:

Whoa....beautiful meditation this morning. How can you be a wounded healer?

What are some wounds you could help heal, both individually and in community? Richard Rohr writes, "Only people who have suffered in some way can usually save anybody else—exactly as the Twelve-Step program illustrates. They alone have the space and the capacity for the other. Deep communion and compassion are formed much more by shared pain than by shared pleasure. Jesus told Peter, 'You must be ground like wheat, and once you have recovered, then you can turn and help the brothers' (see Luke 22:31-32). In general, you can lead people on the spiritual journey as far as you have gone. Transformed people transform people. When you can be healed yourself and not just talk about healing, you are, as Henri Nouwen said, a 'wounded healer'—which is probably the only kind of healer!" Read the rest of our meditation:
