Overthinking creates problems that don’t exist and ignores possibilities that do…this is a quote from a friend and coach, Adama Hamadi. I am famous for jumping to the extreme in my head, worry about all the things and how I can’t get something done or figure out a solution, when in fact I have help ALL around me, all I need to do is ask. Or just take a minute and breathe. Read more>>

It takes a community to change a community. It really takes all of us helping one another and making sure we have the laws and resources in place so that no one has to face anything alone. The Hope Box will get called into a situation and then provide full wrap-around care. Really what that means is we remove the crises so a mother can take a breath and then make an educated decision. I love to see a mother have hope and make a decision that she can live with. I cannot even imagine the feeling of being so afraid that you feel like you have no other choice but to abandon your baby. Being able to walk with a mother through this really is quite an amazing thing. Read more>>

I try to remind myself of this every day, before I make any decision – and I hope that also translates to people through how I run my business. Read more>>

Marshall It means love and emotions travel upon a gray spectrum and often without a precise approach. The fact that love is not always evident; we hope our decisions will work in our favor. Most of the time, it does, but it isn’t easy to see it looks different than we expected. During our time on earth, we must explore to understand our purpose and destiny. We will experience fun, laughter, and feel-good moments through our love journey, but we will also experience sadness, disappointments, and feel-bad moments. To understand and appreciate the good, we must understand the impacts or consequences of the not so good feelings. Read more>>
