live it to give it is all about love and connection. Being authentic. Living our lives and sharing it with others. Life is messy and so is this blog. Somedays my organized coach self shows up. Other days it's my vulnerable author. There's a mom that lives inside me alongside a wife, friend, creative muse, ponderer extraordinaire, and multitude of others.

I'm honored you're here and I hope you'll come back soon!!  Cheers! Kayce

We have fought for what we believe in. We have reached for dreams and come up short. Today is a BIG day.

Breaking the Chains...

This summer I was invited to serve on a panel designed to assist participants in understanding the dynamics of letting go of a fundamentalist background. My participation was predicated on my personal history of transforming my own rigid religious and familial upbringing into a fluid, joy-filled life. What follows is a metaphor (and more).
