“Absolutely not. I am not about power,” I vehemently disagreed with my executive coach. Sitting at a busy Starbucks, I could not understand why we were even talking about power. This wise coach picked up her blonde brew and kindly said, “Jenn, I need you to listen. Everything has a power. Every person holds power. […]

Laughing, giggling, “Over here!” “No! I’m over here!” Watching an ancient game of Marco Polo (centuries before the explorer or the app), a man scoffed at the storyteller Aesop playing childish games with some neighborhood kids.  “Why?” the man jeered, “Why are you wasting your time?” Picking up a bow, Aesop loosened its string and […]

I totaled my dad’s car when I was 16—in my own driveway… I backed the ‘82 Cutlass Supreme into a random F250 black truck with an enormous tow hitch that had chosen that moment to turn around in our driveway in our h-shaped driveway. What I didn’t use that winter morning? My mirrors. Cost me […]

I decided on a random Tuesday in January of 2022 that it’s never too late to be the most active participant in my life. I started walking out the front door every day for a short walk. I added time and activities. In May of 2022, I started a streak of moving at least 30 […]

I stopped counting at 4 hours trying to solve an issue with a flight change. Messaging with the airline, trying to fix the problem online, and finally on hold on the phone. Friend, I am currently listening to the hold music with interruptions from the voice that says, “You can conveniently solve this problem at […]

I feel like it’s all been raining down the past couple of weeks. It was the final show of the year for our high schooler, and another driver rear-ended her on the Friday before the show…totaling the car (no injuries! Thank the Lord!). I’ve been traveling and so has Michael. We had out-of-town guests. A […]

Ding! I opened the text preview at my kitchen table. I dropped my phone on the placemat. I clenched my jaw, closed my eyes, and shook my head.  The grey bubble lacked logic and overflowed with pessimism and negativity. I read the text to my daughter, who confirmed — it didn’t make sense.⁣ I’d like […]

Assumicide attacked our home one weekend. Casualties were great. In my pale celery green kitchen, my hands full scooping out eggs for brunch, my oldest man-child loomed in the doorway and kindly called me on an assumption. Ouch. Just the day before, this same then-17-year-old and I had a similar conversation in the very same […]

Work doesn’t have to be this hard. It can be a joy. Joy, connection, belonging, purpose…all of that is available at work. As part of the wholeness of your life. You can work where your strengths are embraced, and your growth is championed. A place where values drive innovation and care, sustaining a wholehearted, flourishing […]

I could feel the tears start in my throat, and I was a little surprised.  Why was I feeling so emotional about a training session? As the participant, not the speaker, I’d been anticipating this session for weeks. Calendar blocked, phone on do not disturb, and multiple beverages at the ready (because there’s always a […]
